Are You Ready?

WHY SHOULD I PREPARE?

Everyone should have a plan.
 

Disasters come in many forms; explosions, hurricanes, tornadoes, and others. Being prepared can reduce fear, anxiety, and losses that accompany these disasters. Individuals, families, and communities should know what to do in the event of a fire and where to seek shelter during a tornado. Knowing what to expect and how to prepare makes any crisis more manageable.

Today we salute the last remaining Doolittle Raider Lt. Col. Richard “Dick” Cole as he's laid to rest. Cole was copilot for Lt. Col. Jimmy Doolittle in a B-25 Mitchell bomber during the Doolittle Raid on April 18, 1942. The strike on Japan's home islands was in response to the Pearl Harbor attack and bolstered American morale in the early months of World War II. A memorial service to celebrate the life of the beloved Doolittle Raider will be held today at Joint Base San Antonio-Randolph, Texas. Check out the special live stream that starts at 9:55 p.m. today: <a href="https://www.dvidshub.net/webcast/19495" target="_blank">https://www.dvidshub.net/webcast/19495</a>
Ever wonder what happens if an aircraft can&#39;t stop on the flight line? The BAC-12 arresting system provides a braking capability on the flight line for F-16s that lose their ability to stop on their own. Check out the Airmen that maintain this system and overhaul it every ten years to keep it in top serviceability! #KnowYourMil #wyvernnation #31CES #USAFE #ElectricalPowerPro

Welcome back from African Lion 2019! #wyvernnation
The Wyvern Warrior Team of the Week is the Weather Flight with the 31st Operations Support Squadron. A recent defining moment for the team, was forecasting a two-hour window during low ceilings and reduced visibility enabling the 510th Fighter Squadron to deploy on schedule. As a team they have some strong, unified opinions. Their team hero is Capt. James Martin Stagg, a D-Day weather forecaster. Their pet peeve is being confused with Airfield Management. They are inspired by severe weather, which might influence their favorite movie being Twister. Well deserved, everyone. Keep up the great work. #WyvernWarrior #wyvernnation
