Lt. Gen. Lee K. Levy II, Air Force Sustainment Center commander AFSC/CC MESSAGE: Honoring a leader
This month we honor Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., a civil rights leader, a courageous patriot, and a man of integrity who espoused peaceful actions to obtain equality for African Americans in this country. Our nation’s founding fathers enshrined the idea of equal rights for all Americans in the Declaration of Independence: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal….” Dr. King envisioned a country that truly embraced that declaration, and he courageously fought to make equal rights for all Americans a reality.

(Courtesy photo) An Airman's Story: Deployment drives home importance of training, learning
The first thing you notice about Airman 1st Class Corynn Marcelo when she talks about her recent deployment to Afghanistan is her professionalism and military bearing.
