Whether you provide your serivice in uniform or as a family member it is absolutely invaluable. If you’re a citizen providing support to our troops, we couldn’t do it without you. As Gen. Edward A. Rice Jr., commander of Air Education and Training Command, said, “The nations military is only a strong as the support is recieves from its citizens.”

Happy Labor Day, everybody!

Meet the Air Force Week Air Force Social Media Team!, Aug. 18, 2012

Check out the crew bringing you the highlights from Air Force Week in New York City for the next few days.

Hi! I’m Staff Sgt. Amanda Dick, and I’ve been with the Air Force Social Media team since April 2012 when I returned from my deployment in Afghanistan. I grew up as an Army brat and loved the military so much I joined the Air Force! I’ve been in for 6 ½ years, and I’ve love it. I’ve had the opportunity to travel to so many wonderful places and meet interesting people and hear their stories.



What’s up Air Force fans! My name is Senior Airman Grovert Fuentes-Contreras, and I’m currently part of the Air Force Social Media team. I’m from New Jersey, and I’m a combat photographer in the Air Force. I do my photography with great pride. I’m glad I have been given the opportunity to show you and the rest of the world the Air Force story, and I hope you enjoy every image I take. Thanks for reading and hope to see you all in the “Big Apple.”



Hello! I’m Othana Montoya, and I recently joined the Air Force Social Media Team.  I’m very excited about this opportunity to experience different perspectives. While working for the Air Force I have learned valuable lessons that have set a strong foundation both personally and professionally.
