Wing priorities, summer safety

MOUNTAIN HOME AIR FORCE BASE, Idaho -- A 366th Fighter Wing All Call took place at Mountain Home Air Force Base, Idaho March 16.

366th FW Commander Col. Jefferson O’Donnell discussed some wing priorities which included F-15 sorties, developing leaders, being vigilant, enhancing readiness and telling the Gunfighter story.

The All Call was full of mission priorities and ideas for summer time fun.
Mr. Mike Hurt, outdoor recreation director, opened the All Call with information on the outdoor adventure program. The program consists of hiking, biking, trips to Yellowstone, rafting and more.

“Some great opportunities are coming out this year for anyone who’s interested to get involved,” Hurt said.

Mr. Matt Chandler, deputy chief of safety, talked about warmer temperatures bringing more and more people outside. With this massive change in temperatures some people might not be ready for it.

“Make sure you have the skills and gear required for whatever outdoor activity you had in mind,” Chandler said.

366th Fighter Wing Command Chief Master Sgt. Chad Bickley’s message was mission and family focused.

“Everyone on this base has one mission,” Bickley said. “We are here to launch sorties, point blank.”

Airmen were also briefed on Sexual Assault Prevention which counted towards three months of training.

“We have to tell the Gunfighter story,” O’Donnell said. “If we don’t, who will?”
