Airmen restore American history at Gettysburg
Fighting broke out once again on the frontlines of Gettysburg. However, it wasn't the battle sounds of cannons and muskets being fired from the Union and Confederate Armies that were heard, but it was the sound of overgrown brush being pulled from the ground and the sound of a rotting fence being torn down in a battle that pitted Airmen against Mother Nature.
More than 100 Team Dover Airmen armed with rakes, clippers and wood cleared out overgrown brush and rebuilt sections of a 300-yard fence line behind the historic Sherfy House Oct. 10, 2014, to help preserve one of America's most famous battlegrounds at Gettysburg National Military Park.
The volunteer trip was organized by the Dover Air Force Base First Sergeants Council and the trip itself was led by Master Sgt. William Garcia, 436th Aircraft Maintenance Squadron first sergeant, who said it was a major success.10.14.2014 Story by Airman 1st Class William Johnson
3d AS gets down and dirty
The pilots are running through their final procedures and double checking that all information inputted into the aircraft's computer is precise and accurate. They prepare to land on a dirt airstrip that is only 3,563 feet long and 90 feet wide. There is no margin for error as lives could depend on the supplies that are carried on board of the aircraft.
This time around was training for the 3d Airlift Squadron, but at any moment they can be called upon to respond to anywhere around the world to deliver cargo and humanitarian relief.
By partnering with the 621st Contingency Response Wing from Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst, New Jersey, a C-17 Globemaster III crew consisting of three pilots and two loadmasters were able to conduct multiple touch and goes and short landing operations on an assault air strip Sept. 24, 2014 at Fort A.P. Hill, Virginia.10.7.2014 Story by Airman 1st Class William Johnson
New programs help Team Dover meet fitness challenge
Earning a 100 percent on the Air Force physical training test is a feat that not all Airmen will receive throughout their career, but there is another 100 that all Airmen here can achieve.
Col. Michael Grismer, 436th Airlift Wing commander, has issued a challenge to all of Team Dover; 100 percent passing fitness assessment scores for all Airmen.
The Dover AFB Fitness Center has accepted this challenge and has made some changes to help Airmen who are struggling to meet the standard and for those Airmen who work night and swing shifts.10.21.2014 Story by Airman 1st Class William Johnson
