Grover Fairley plays several sports for Special Olympics Mississippi. He bowls so well in fact that he captured 3 medals at the 2018 Special Olympics USA games representing Mississippi, including gold in singles with a 268! Allison Hinz never had a doubt about one of her favorite students. “I’ve taught him since he was in 9th grade. When he was first diagnosed, a doctor told his mom to institutionalize him, that he would not be able to do much. I wonder sometimes, what can he NOT do.” Don't miss out on this amazing upcoming event May 10-12!

Ashley Nelson, 81st Communications Squadron information technology asset management NCO in charge. Read more about Kazumura's passion for volunteering here!

We've mentioned Student-Centered Active Learning Environment with Upside-down Pedagogies (SCALE-UP) plenty of times throughout the year and how it helps our Airmen absorb the information they're learning, but have you ever seen it? Take a peek at this short video.
EARLY RELEASE AUTHORIZED AT 1 P.M. Team Keesler, All Keesler non-mission essential personnel are authorized early release today at 1 p.m. due to the incoming severe weather. Please work with your chain of command to identify the time that your specific work center will be released. Local flooding is anticipated so be cautious as you travel home. Remember to turn around, don’t drown. Also, avoid traveling during the storm. For more information about how to prepare for severe storms please visit: https://www.beready.af.mil/Disasters-Emergencies/Natural-Disasters/Thunderstorms-Lightning/ For information on flooding, visit: http://www.beready.af.mil/Disasters-Emergencies/Natural-Disasters/Floods/ EDIT: DFAC hours will be 3:30 pm to 5:30 p.m. today due to the storm. No midnight chow will be served. The Commissary will close at 2 p.m. today.
GATE CLOSURE: White Avenue Gate has been temporarily closed as part of our on-going exercise. Please use Pass Road or Meadows gate in the interim.
If you plan to be on base today and tomorrow, you may see some smoke and first responders around. Don't worry! We are just exercising our ability to respond to a major accident on base and off. Exercises like these are crucial to ensuring we can provide a safe and secure environment for you and your families. You may experience delays getting around so plan ahead and give yourself a little extra time when coming on base.
"What the bronze star mean to me is something very special," said Lt. Col. Gordon Hazlette, 81st MSGS certified registered nurse anesthetist. "It's an acknowledgement of what we did. I think it's an honor that we got that." Find out what these Airmen did to receive the bronze star.

Who won the Tree City USA award for the 26th year in a row? That's right, we did! No big deal. This award is awarded to Tree City USA communities that are recognized for higher levels of tree care as well as an increased commitment of resources for urban forestry. (Go us!) With that said, every year we plant a tree in honor of Arbor Day... with the assistance of a few little helpers. 😃🌳
Let’s give Senior Airman Ajah Payton from the 336th Training Squadron a shout-out for being chosen as the Warrior of the Week at today’s wing staff meeting! Payton was recognized for her professionalism and outstanding work ethic in the commander support staff. She manages 25 squadron personnel programs for 107 military and civilian permanent personnel and facilitates student processing center support for 500+ students on a daily basis. She also completed her Community College of the Air Force in human resources and Associate in Arts Business Management degree.
Congratulations to Airman 1st Class Josephino Cambosa who became the first non-prior service Airman to graduate the Cyber Warfare Operations Apprentice Course. The Air Force’s cyber warfare operations enlisted Airmen are on the front lines of the nation’s offensive and defensive cyber operations. This was once a career field that you could only cross train into, but not anymore. By opening up the career field to first term Airmen, the United States Air Force can develop the skills and increase the depth of experience starting early in an Airman's career.
Lt. Col. Richard Cole, the last survivor of the Doolittle Raiders, has passed away. 77 years ago this Saturday, 80 intrepid Airmen changed the course of history as they executed a one-way mission without hesitation against enormous odds. May the legacy of the Doolittle Raiders, your legacy, live forever.
As you well know Spring Break weekend is right around the corner and that means there's going to be an influx of people and traffic in the local area. For those who are planning on going on base over the weekend, be aware the gate hours will be changing to accommodate the increased traffic in the surrounding area. The White Ave. gate will close April 11 at 6 p.m. and will reopen April 15 at 5 a.m. The Meadows gate will be under 24 hour operations April 11-15. Pass Rd. gate will remain unchanged.

“As one enters the Air Force, how does one know all of the different things that exist there and which one do you really want to do?” said Leahy. “Because, in the end, if we allow people to do things that are really important to them, that truly speak to their core and what they want to do with their life, they will do it well and they will do it for long periods of time.” The fifth annual Pathways to Blue event occurred over the weekend where over 250 ROTC cadets and enlisted members participated to learn more about the officer career fields the United States Air Force has to offer, and how their interests align with the Air Force priorities. Click here to learn more about this event.
We were proud to host this amazing event here! So inspiring to see these young men and women discover the possibilities the United States Air Force has to offer.
HAPPENING NOW: Over 250 ROTC cadets are visiting Keesler AFB for the annual Pathways to Blue event to learn more about the different officer career fields the United States Air Force has to offer. We see some future Airmen out here for sure!
