Celebrate the 4th – Stay alert and live to see the 5th…Fireworks are a wonderful way to celebrate the 4th of July, but they must be used wisely. Here’s a short list of tips: - Use fireworks OUTDOORS only in a clear area; away from buildings and vehicles. - OBEY LOCAL LAWS. If fireworks are not legal where you live, don’t use them. - A responsible adult SHOULD supervise all firework activities. Never give fireworks to children as sparklers can burn at 2,000 F, which is as hot as a blow torch. - Always have water handy. (A hose or bucket) - Only use fireworks as intended. Don't try to alter them or combine them - NEVER relight a "dud" firework. Wait 20 minutes and then soak it in a bucket of water - USE COMMON SENSE. This is a big deal because so many injuries could have been prevented had common sense be used And let’s not forget the safety of our pets! - Don’t bring your pets to a fireworks display, even a small one. If fireworks are being used near your home, put your pet in a safe, interior room to avoid exposure to the sound. - Make sure your pet has an identification tag, in case it runs off during a fireworks display. - Never shoot fireworks of any kind (consumer fireworks, sparklers, fountains, etc.) near pets. And PLEASE remember our veterans who may suffer from PTSD. Fireworks can be a trigger for them.

A trio of Reserve Citizen Airmen have taken the concept of a military brotherhood to a literal level. Their wives are sisters, making them brothers-in-law as well as brothers-in-arms. Chaplain (Capt.) Matthew Wilson, 944th Fighter Wing, was the first of the three to join the Air Force Reserve Command six years ago.

#DYK that the idea of an annual day specifically celebrating the Flag is believed to have first originated in 1885? BJ Cigrand, a schoolteacher, arranged for the students in the Fredonia, Wisconsin Public School District 6, to observe June 14 (the 108th anniversary of the official adoption of the Stars and Stripes) as 'Flag Birthday'. The idea spread to other schools and eventually state and local groups began holding celebrations in honor of the flag. Flag Day, the anniversary of the Flag Resolution of 1777, was officially established by the Proclamation of President Woodrow Wilson on May 30 1916, however, it was not until August 3 1949, that President Truman signed an Act of Congress designating June 14th of each year as National Flag Day. #knowyourshistory

A group of boys from the Elliot Groves Ward Youth Group in Queens Creek stopped by Luke today for a tour of the 944th Fighter Wing. During the tour, the visitors met Airmen from the 944 Security Forces Squadron, the 944 Aeromedical Staging Squadron, and the Explosive Ordnance Disposal flight. They also got the chance to see an F-35 and F-16 up close and learn about Luke’s training mission. America’s future pilots and bomb disposal technicians might be in this group of boys inspired by today’s visit!
Congratulations to our Chaplain team! They won five out of five categories during the 2017 Air Force Reserve Command Chaplain Corps Awards. Check out the story below!
