Erwin) Bomber bros: taking the (atomic) Adams family to a new height
Capt. Julien and Daniel Adams have a lot in common. They both have dark, short-cropped hair, love Korean food, and are alumni of the same university; however, the similarities don’t stop there. In fact, if surrounded by people who didn’t know them very well, the two could easily swap places for the day with nobody being the wiser – a fun perk of having an identical twin. In the Air Force, they are barely even separated by the airframes they fly on – bomber jets.

Beads of sweat roll down the aviator’s cheek, his face plastered in a harsh red glow as warning lights strobe around him. The crew fights to handle the uncontrollable beast, but the pilot soon realizes he must make a daunting decision: abandon ship.

According to the Dyess Chapel staff, those most at-risk for holiday depression include those who are unable to see friends and family over the holiday season. The staff encourages Airmen to look out for warning signs and encourage those they find displaying those signs to seek help.

U.S. Air Force Airman 1st Class Diana Quijada, left, and Airman 1st Class Ashley Walton, both aircrew flight equipment (AFE) technicians assigned to the 509th Operations Support Squadron, pose with the equipment they maintain at Whiteman Air Force Base, Mo., Dec. 12, 2017. Walton and Quijada inspect the equipment on a regular basis to ensure it functions correctly for the pilots. Attention to detail: From BMT to AFE
She recalls being full of nerves, holding her breath in order to stand still. Although it may sound unimportant, passing this wall locker inspection was the difference between graduating basic military training (BMT) or having to repeat the training. Everything had to be perfect, which meant no dust or lint anywhere, socks and shirts properly folded, towels with flushed edges, and uniforms hung correctly on evenly spaced hangers. She stood completely still as the military training instructors (MTIs) inspected her locker.

Do you remember that feeling when you finally figured out how to ride a bike? Your brother or sister, or maybe your parent or guardian, taught you how to balance and pedal at the same time, and then took off the training wheels. Maybe you did a weird circle until you fell down. But you finally balanced, pedaled and rode that Superman or princess
