TOP STORY >> Healthy eating advances AF readiness, mission success

By Airman 1st Class Grace Nichols
19th Airlift Wing Public Affairs

Being “Fit to fight” is a widespread concept throughout the Air Force, but fitness isn’t confined to exercise.

Making smart food choices can contribute to encouraging increased physical activity and improved nutritional decisions.

There are many resources available to Airmen, such as the Department of Defense’s Go for Green program, or G4G. Available at most DOD dining facilities, G4G uses a green, yellow and red color-code to identify nutritious foods and make healthy food choices easier. Foods are organized based on their nutrition quality, which can impact an Airman’s fitness, strength and health. 

“G4G helps service members make better choices which will give them more energy and in turn accomplish the mission,” said Tech. Sgt.  Danielle Joe, 19th Force Support Squadron Hercules Dining Facility manager. “Most people want to make healthy choices, but sometimes get overwhelmed with options and different ingredients. Our aim is to simplify the decision making process by identifying healthy choices.”

When selecting from the dining facility menu, keep in mind the significance of these labels:

Green: eat often

• Yellow: eat occasionally

• Red: eat rarely

Dietitians and sports nutritionists are also available to offer free advice and counseling on health related issues.

“We try to bring to light that it’s not just about the types of food but the relationship you have with those foods,” said Jill Hinsley, 19th Aeromedical Squadron sports dietetics nutritionist. “It’s more than good and bad foods, it’s how it (food choices) can be better.”

Following these guidelines can promote a healthy lifestyle and reduce potential illness:

• Balancing calories is beneficial, but food should be selected on nutritional value rather than calorie content

• Have a colorful plate by eating at least 4.5 cups of fruits and vegetables a day with the focus on vegetables to avoid excess sugar, including a variety of dark-green, red and orange vegetables, beans and peas

• Have a palm-sized portion of protein with each meal to promote healthy muscles

• Eat whole grains, the equivalent of at least three 1-ounce servings a day to potentially reduce blood cholesterol levels

• Don’t be afraid of fat in foods — healthy amounts can be filling and reduce overeating

• Eat real food, which are items that can be hunted or grown

“Every individual is different; other than allergies and portion sizes, the diets should be very similar,” Hinsley said.

For more information or to set up an appointment, contact Jill Hinsley at 501- 987-7288.

TOP STORY >> Good habits boost fiscal fitness

By Airman 1st Class Grace Nichols
19th Airlift Wing Public Affairs

Just like preparing for a physical fitness test, there’s no shortcut to “fiscal fitness” and an excellent credit score. There are steps that Airmen can take today to improve credit scores and avoid future financial woes.

The Airman & Family Readiness Center at Little Rock Air Force Base, Arkansas, offers a Managing Credit Class, which covers the basics of building and maintaining a good credit score. Financial advisors can help get budgets on track to start prevent overuse of credit cards, thus increasing credit scores.

“Service members need to make sure they keep their credit in check because it could potentially affect their ability to get or maintain their security clearance,” said Peggy Bennett, A&FRC community readiness consultant. “We have seen members lose their security clearance due to bad credit. Your credit report and history not only effect your buying power, but they can also affect future employment and your insurance.”

Following these simple tips from the A&FRC can boost future credit health:

• Have and use credit cards responsibly, keeping low or no balances at the end of the billing cycle.

• Pay all bills on time and have installment loans for vehicles or mortgages

• Save for emergencies so you don’t have an unexpected bill on a credit card without the ability to pay it off.

• Don’t charge items to a card and wait to pay them off for long periods of time. An account that is in excess of 20 percent of the available credit limit is going to hurt scores.

• Create a workable budget, and build and maintain an emergency fund. 

• Keep debt to income ratio (non-mortgage) below 20 percent.

• Use credit cards for safety and convenience, but zero the card out at least once a month.

“The Air Force expects integrity, solid credibility and reliability from our Airmen,” said Master Sgt. Carlo Nino, 19th Aircraft Maintenance Squadron first sergeant. “It is particularly important to maintain personal financial affairs because it doesn’t just affect the Airmen, it definitely impacts the Air Force mission too.”

Bad credit scores affects a borrower’s interest rates as well as insurance rates for everything from renters insurance to health and life insurance. High balances on credit cards, late or missed payments, maxed out accounts and overdrafts on checking accounts are the main causes of poor credit.

“Usually the quickest fix for a bad credit score is to get it down to less than 10 percent of the available balance,” said Richard Tomaskovic, A&FRC community readiness consultant. “Setting up a bill payment calendar, making a budget and sticking to it is also important, but will take longer.”

Key factors for credit health are credit card payment history and amounts owed, according to Tomaskovic, who added that these contribute to 65 percent of a credit score. Other factors include length of credit history, types of credit used and new accounts.

For more information about building credit or to meet with a financial advisor, contact the A&FRC at 501-987-2667. 

TOP STORY >> Tailor made: EFMP families treated to a special day of play

By Tammy L. Reed
19th Airlift Wing Public Affairs

Team Little Rock’s Exceptional Family Member Program coordinators recently teamed with Camp Aldersgate counselors in Little Rock to host a Family Adventure Day for all family members in the program.

Camp Aldersgate is Arkansas’ only non-profit organization dedicated to serving children and youth with disabilities and seniors in a camp environment. The camp is located on more than 100 acres in Little Rock, minutes away from Arkansas Children’s Hospital.

EFMP merged with the camp for a day of fun and new activities for the special needs children and their families in the program.

“The main purpose is that families can come here as a family with a special needs member, and they all can have a good time, and they’ll be around other families with similar circumstances,” said Steve Jones, Airman and Family Readiness Center EFMP coordinator. “Those kids can intermingle with each other, and can say, ‘Hey, I’m not the only one around here with, maybe, an issue.’ So it brings people together.”

Camp activities included arts and crafts, archery, canoeing, fishing, disc golf and other events such as a carousel ride and ice cream at the end of the day. The activities were hosted on a campus specifically designed for people in wheelchairs, or needing walkers, or just needing to express themselves in ways that might draw unwanted attention elsewhere.

They put harnesses on and negotiated the rocks on the climbing wall. There were some times that were challenging for them; some of the easy parts were challenging for a few. But it was no big deal because the parents were there to give them a hand, Jones added.

C.J. Moorman did just that: he gave his son, Lance, a hand with his fishing rod as they trolled for the big catfish inhabiting the camp lake. Moorman, who works at the Airmen and Family Readiness Center here, and his wife Cindy, brought their four sons and six grandchildren to the event.

“Steve sets things up like this. He stays in contact with all the folks who want to be in the program; he has a list and he keeps track of all the people,” Moorman said, “then he does events like this where he gets people out in the community doing things that people with special needs can actually take advantage of.”

“It’s really neat to see the grandkids interact with Lance and JoJo and other children with disabilities as well,” Cindy added. “We’re having a great time.”

TOP STORY >> GREEN FLAG Little Rock: Securing joint operational readiness

By Airman 1st Class Rhett Isbell
19th Airlift Wing Public Affairs

The 34th Combat Training Squadron coordinated the 50th anniversary of Air Mobility Command’s GREEN FLAG exercise.

The two-week exercise, conducted at Fort Polk, La., grow’s the bonds and coordination between Mobility Air Force’s assets and their Army brethren.

“One of the best ways for a loadmaster to learn is to hear how to best tackle a problem from another, more experienced, loadmaster,” said Staff Sgt. Whitny Woolverton, 34th CTS instructor loadmaster. “I have a lot of experience I can share with other loadmasters and I love being able to do that.”

Woolverton participated as an observer, coach and trainer, or OCT, during the exercise. This involved flying with various aircrews and observing or assisting them perform certain tasks encountered during deployments or temporary deployments.

One of these tasks is Combat Offload Method B, a method used when a piece of cargo cannot be offloaded by conventional methods because it’s either too big or the proper equipment needed is unavailable. 

The method consists of hooking chains attached to a forklift to cargo and anchoring it in place while the aircraft slowly moves forward. As the piece of cargo is removed from the aircraft, aircrew place barrels underneath to keep its height consistent and from falling over. Once this process is complete, the aircraft can immediately begin to take off procedures if needed. However, the aircrew may take their time safely moving the piece of equipment. 

“GREEN FLAG is a good, controlled environment to get critical training for deployments,” said Airman Dalton Clark, 40th Airlift Squadron loadmaster. “I’m trying to get as much training as I can before an actual deployment comes up.”

The wealth of information and training gained during this exercise is just one of the many avenues available to ensure service members are prepared to answer their nation’s call.

“I’ve seen plenty of stuff I’ve never encountered before,” Clark said. “It’s good to be able to experience things that are out of your norm and learn how to prepare for that.”

TOP STORY >> Little Rock AFB Airman supports family in Puerto Rico from MacDill AFB

By Senior Airman Mercedes Taylor
19th Airlift Wing Public Affairs

MACDILL AIR FORCE BASE, Fla. – In times of adversity, many turn to their families for emotional support. Loved ones become safety nets when one of their own faces strife. But what does a person do when his family is in jeopardy on an island thousands of miles away?

Airman 1st Class Kenny Rivera Rojas, 19th Aircraft Maintenance Squadron crew chief, responded to his family by offering his helping hands to not just his family, but the entire Puerto Rican population, by helping maintain aircraft headed to Hurricane Maria for aeromedical evacuation missions.  

Rivera Rojas’s family is part of the 3.4 million people in Puerto Rico affected by Hurricane Maria. They reside in the city of Canovanas, Puerto Rico, 30 minutes away from San Juan. Rivera Rojas’s only way to contact them is through his sister, who works at San Juan Luis Munoz Marin Airport.

“They mean the world to me,” Rivera Rojas said. “I’m very close to everyone, even my extended family. “Although my sister hasn’t gotten the chance to talk to them, I try to call at least once a day. Since there isn’t electricity, all I hear is the phone ring. They don’t know I’m here.”

The challenges his family is facing is the same as other Puerto Ricans who are struggling to find food, water and gas. So far, the U.S. territory has received support from federal and private agencies.

“It’s heartwarming to see people donate to help so much,” Rivera Rojas said. “I didn’t think there was going to be the amount of support there is.”

So far, Rivera Rojas has contributed to maintenance operations supporting responding aircraft by aiding in flight pre-checks and loading supplies onto aircraft headed to Puerto Rico and will continue to do so as long as he can. 

“Until I see my family again, I’m willing to do anything in my power to make sure they’re OK,” he said. “I’m here. I’m doing my best to help out and be there. I love you.”
