Outdoor Rec gives Lajes Airmen an opportunity to travel back in time
With today's fast paced world, filled with technology, people can forget how hard and fun things used to be. Airmen and their families from Lajes saw a perfect example of this. While no time machines were actually used, Outdoor Recreation took them to the Biscoitos Vineyard Festival on Sept. 6, 2014, where locals dressed in traditional clothing and invited attendees to join them to travel behind an ox cart, to the vineyard, to collect grapes, like it was done many years ago.09.6.2014 Story by Staff Sgt.

Dual Slotted: Airman and stay-at-home dad
Before the sun crests the treetops that flank that backside of Airman 1st Class Richard Wengler’s house, the 36-year-old father of two young boys gives them a kiss goodbye. He prepares to leave one career and report for duty at the 128th Air Refueling Wing, Maintenance Squadron, for his other career. This sounds familiar to most who serve in the military, leaving their family to report for service. Unlike most people who have a 40-hour work week to earn an income working in an office, working for a municipality, or working for the local cable provider, Wengler’s full-time job does not garner him a paycheck. It offers him something many parents would love to say is their full-time career. Wengler is a stay-at-home dad.09.17.2014 Story by Staff Sgt. Jeremy Wilson
