The sweat drips from his brow and he knows he has paperwork to complete before his work is done. After the long drive home through narrow, twisty roads, with the rain beating down on the windshield, his eyes grow heavy. Arriving home, his son shouts ‘Daddy!’ and runs into his arms, his son wants him to help with an art project that he’s been waiting all day to proudly show off. The Airman tugs off his boots, sits down surrounded by his family, and they share stories about their days.

While driving down the highway, a ringing boom noise sounds from underneath the car and causes the whole vehicle to shake robustly. Slowing down, making it to the shoulder of the road, the tire is obviously flat. Is there a spare in the trunk? Can it be fixed right then and there, or should road-side assistance be called? How prepared would you have been? What about a zombie apocalypse? The undead is after the living. Phone lines are down, stores are closed and supplies are limited. Emergency services are down, including medical and the police. The only materials available are the supplies you already possess. A noise rustles through the bushes. A zombie is spotted muttering one word: brains. Are you prepared?

Default Air Force Logo RAF Mildenhall updates AtHoc System
Breaking the usual everyday workplace noise, an ear-piercing alarm starts sounding, making those nearby stop and pay attention wondering what just happened. Thankfully, instead of warning of a possible attack, it's just Airmen from the 100th Air Refueling Wing Command Post conducting the weekly test to ensure notifications are reaching all Team Mildenhall personnel. It typically happens at the same time on a weekly basis, accompanied by loud sirens taking control of the room it continuously playing over and over until the user gives the alert attention and finally rids it from the screen.

The sun has not yet risen on a cold winter morning as his alarm clock sounds. Bleary eyed, he sits up and rubs his tired face. He looks over to his sleeping wife and takes a minute to come to. Then the realization hits him — ‘Today is the day I do my part to give a fallen wingman a memorial his family will treasure. I will take extra pride in putting on my uniform today, for that is what his family will see as the Stars and Stripes are lowered over their son’s coffin and he is laid to rest.’ While giving everything to the honor guard, he also takes care of the mission.
