TOP STORY>>Base Winter Wingman Day scheduled for Feb. 7

By 19th Airlift Wing Public Affairs

Little Rock Air Force Base will be participating in Winter Wingman Day on Friday, Feb. 7.

The goal of this day is to enable Airmen, Air Force civilians and full-time staff of the Air National Guard and Reserves to develop their resilience through Squadron Commander’s Calls and through courses that encompass the Comprehensive Airman Fitness domains. In order to reach as many Airman and Air Force Civilians as possible, this is a planned no-fly and emergency-only customer service day.

The goal of Comprehensive Airman Fitness is to help our Airmen, Air Force civilians and family members become more resilient and better-equipped to deal with the rigors of military life. We do this by promoting positive behaviors and holistic health through the four CAF domains: mental fitness, physical fitness, social fitness and spiritual fitness.

The Air Force defines mental fitness as: The ability to effectively cope with unique mental stressors and challenges needed to ensure mission readiness.

The Air Force defines physical fitness as: The ability to adopt and sustain healthy behaviors needed to enhance health and wellness.

The Air Force defines social fitness as: The ability to engage in healthy social networks that promote overall well-being and optimal performance.

The Air Force defines spiritual fitness as: The ability to strengthen a set of beliefs, principles, or values that sustain an individual’s sense of well-being and purpose.

In addition to your Squadron Commander’s Call, each Airman is required to attend any three of the courses being offered between 4 a.m. - 6 p.m. There are more than 50 different courses available, but there are neither required courses nor a requirement to complete a course in each domain.

A complete course schedule with descriptions can be found at the base website, Registration will occur online via Appointment Plus at Instructions for the Appointment Plus system are also located on the base website. Registration closes Feb. 5. Once registered, Airmen will provide supervisors a copy of their registration confirmation and only no-shows will be reported to units.
