Check out this photo of one of our majestic KC-135s soaring into the sky ready to deliver fuel to allies across Europe and Africa. Hope everyone has refueled over the weekend and is ready to get back at it on Monday! #RAFMildenhall #StratotankerSunday
Our Airmen are working on commitment this month for GRIT. Commitment is a leadership quality that inspires and attracts people. It shows a leader has convictions and that he or she believes in the cause. Commitment is tested by action, and allows leaders and teams to press on and get up, no matter how many times they get knocked down. Nothing worthwhile can be achieved without commitment. #GRIT U.S. Air Forces in Europe and Air Forces Africa United States Air Force
"We provide supplies for aircraft in order for them to complete their mission requirements. With all this responsibility I have grown in my ability as an Airman to be fully capable, willing and knowledgeable in my part of the mission," said Senior Airman Daniel Hatfield, 100th Logistics Readiness Squadron decentralized maintenance support material manager.
Congratulations to #TeamMildenhall’s newest Staff Sergeant Selectees! Continue leading the way each and every day. Remember to take the time to thank your family, friends and leadership who helped you along the way! #SquareDAway

Happy #NationalAviationDay! Here's a small sample of how our KC-135s extend global reach!
Kicking off the week with #StratotankerSunday highlighting one of our mission-essential aircraft at #TeamMildenhall!
Did you know service members leaving active duty are able to intern at a civilian company for up to six months and receive military pay and benefits as part of the Department of Defense SkillBridge program? This is just one of many resources the base education office can inform Airmen about! #RAFMILDENHALL https://go.usa.gov/xVCBz
“My favorite part of the job is knowing that we play an important role on base since we send out the parts that are needed for the aircraft to get fixed and carry out the mission. Also, we get the opportunity to talk to many different units throughout the base to see how those parts are being used to keep the mission going,” said Airman 1st Class Kaitlyn Binegar, 100th Logistics Readiness Squadron, Flight Service Center journeyman.
Team Mildenhall’s youngsters got the chance to see what it takes for their parents to deploy. They toured aircraft and received some specialized gear and training. What a great way to help them understand military requirements! #TeamMildenhall Click on the story for more information... https://go.usa.gov/xVans

Happy Stratotanker Sunday! Here is a little throwback to Exercise Point Blank when we refueled some F-35A Lightning II aircraft. Here at the Bloody Hundredth we are always happy to assist our brothers and sisters in arms. #NKAWTG

“We’re the only refueling base in USAFE-AFAFRICA, and we have the responsibility to ensure that when an emergency arises, we can be there to protect the structures, personnel and aircraft. It’s not just fire that we respond to but hazmat, aircraft and medical emergencies as well. I have to be dedicated when I come to work and perform to the best of my capabilities because when I show up on someone’s worst day, they’re going to expect the best out of me,” said Senior Airman Adam Strizak, 100th Civil Engineer Squadron firefighter.
The Bloody Hundredth takes care of its people. Colonel Pananon flew down to Moron Air Base, Spain, to introduce himself to our forward deployed Airmen and recognize some top performers.
