Authorized Exchange shoppers who receive the new ID will notice some changes when writing a check, putting something on layaway or making a return at an Army & Air Force Exchange Service facility. The absence of the Social Security number, the only number used by DOD for financial transactions to recover lost funds, means that cashiers will scan the new IDs to facilitate certain financial transactions. “We’ve spent a great deal of time upgrading our systems to recognize the new IDs and provide these services without interruption,” said Chief Master Sgt. Jeffry Helm, the Exchange’s senior enlisted advisor. “The scanning process not only is more convenient, but also helps protect service members’ personal data. So whether the ID is old or new, authorized shoppers have the proper ‘security clearance’ to exercise their Exchange benefit and shop with peace of mind.” While not a new process, scanning for the DOD ID number to complete select transactions assists in guarding the investment authorized shoppers make in their communities. A military command with a retail mission, two-thirds of Exchange earnings are paid to morale, welfare and recreation programs. Procedures that protect assets helped Exchange officials to contribute more than $2.4 billion to quality-of-life improvements over the past decade in support of youth services, armed forces recreation centers, arts and crafts, aquatic centers, golf courses and more.

July 1, 2011 Desert Wings 7 Warrior of the Week Senior Airman Chace Pugh Kevin T. Chellis 412th Maintenance Squadron precision management equipment laboratory journeyman Hometown: El Paso, Texas When did you join the Air Force? Nov. 23, 2008 Why did you join? To have a career I could be proud of and to set a good example for my brothers. What do you like most about your job? The abundant opportunities to learn new things and the constant new challenges. If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be and why? I’d live anywhere overseas because I want to experience new places and cultures. Warrior Highlights: “Senior Airman Chace T. Pugh is an outstanding airman and defines the Air Force core values of In- tegrity, Service Before Self and Excellence in All We Do. He always stands proud and represents the Air Force whether on or off duty. He is a very active member of the base Honor Guard and has been asked to lead several details on and off base. His productivity and quality have been second to none and I never have to ask him twice to perform a task. Airman Pugh has become an outstanding mentor to the newly arriving airman at base dormitories and has had his room recognized as “Room of the Quarter” and won’t hesitate to take a wingman under his wing when necessary to help ensure he stays on the right track.” Lawrence Guerra 412th Maintenance Squadron test measurement diagnostics equipment flight supervisor Join us for… PBR VA July 4 • 7 pm Housing Fireworks following PBR Residential & Commercial ★ Attention VeterAns ★ Tickets start at 20 $ .00 no Down Payment • no escrow Fee • Free Qualifying Pest • Weed • Rodent Control PRCA Rodeo We have helped hundreds of Veterans find homes July 15th & 16th • 7:30 pm (661) 822-1970 Don’t call on that yard sign!

Column 2 of Table 1 specifies the monitoring frequency. Additional General Information on Drinking Water Drinking water, including bottled water, may reasonably be expected to contain small amounts of some contaminants. The presence of contaminants does not necessarily indicate that the water poses a health risk. Some people may be more vulnerable to contaminants in drinking water than the general population. Immuno-compromised people, such as those with cancer undergoing chemotherapy, those who have undergone organ transplants, people with HIV/AIDS or other immune system disorders, some elderly individuals, and infants can be particularly at risk from infections. These people should seek advice about drinking water EDWARDS AFB 2010 WATER MONITORING RESULTS SUM- Lead Lead is a natural metal used in some pipe fittings.

Department of Public Health (CDPH) in January 2006. We do this to ensure compliance with the EPA-established standard of 10 ppb for arsenic. NOTE: The “highest level detected” represents the concentration of arsenic directly from only one well and the average is of all the wells in use. Arsenic is a naturally occurring mineral known to cause cancer in humans at high concen- trations. Some people who drink water containing arsenic in excess of the MCL over many years could experience skin damage or problems with their circulatory system, and may have an increased risk of getting cancer. Nitrate Nitrate in drinking water at levels above 45 ppm is a health risk for infants of less than six months of age. Such nitrate levels in drinking water can interfere with the capacity of the infant’s blood to carry oxygen, resulting in a serious illness; symptoms include shortness of breath and blueness of skin. Nitrate levels above 45 ppm may also affect the ability of the blood to carry oxygen in other individuals, such as pregnant women and those with certain specific enzyme deficiencies. If you are caring for an infant, or you are pregnant, you should ask for advice from your health care provider. Total trihalomethanes Trihalomethanes are a by-product of chlorination of drinking water. Some people who drink water containing trihalomethanes in excess of the MCL over many years may experience problems with their liver, kidney, or central nervous system, and may have an increased risk of getting cancer. Trihalomethane sampling results are based on an annual running average. The EAFB Trihalomethane average of 44.04 ppb complies with the MCL. Gross alpha Initial gross alpha contamination is required to be sampled for four consecutive quarters, every four years by the Environmental Protection Agency and the California Department of Public Health. Gross alpha sampling results received in 2008 indicated the wells used at EAFB will be required to be sampled every 3 years. The number reported is from samples taken in 2008. Turbidity Turbidity is a measure of the cloudiness of the water. We monitor it because it is a good indicator of water quality. High turbidity can hinder the effectiveness of disinfectants. Areas affected by high turbidity have been placed on a regular flushing schedule to reduce turbidity.

People with Wilson’s disease should consult their personal physician. Turbidity Turbidity is a measure of the cloudiness of the water. We monitor it because it is a good indicator of water quality. High turbidity can hinder the effectiveness of disinfectants. Areas affected by high turbidity have been placed on a regular flushing schedule to reduce turbidity.
