Air Force Reserve Command’s 419th Fighter Wing at Hill AFB, Utah, has opened a new heritage park on the base to honor the wing’s 60-year history. About 1,000 wing personnel gathered earlier this month to dedicate the park, which includes F-16 and F-105 aircraft static displays. Back in 1984, the wing became the first Reserve flying unit to operate the F-16. (Hill report by SSgt. Alan Schultz)
Changes are coming this year for Airmen taking professional military education (PME) distance learning courses. Closer interactions with facilitators, a revised capstone course, and more feedback on test performance are meant to improve the overall experience for distance learning students, who often include members of the Air National Guard.
