YRRP kicks off with first event
By Tech. Sgt. Jesse Tames
Coordinator, 310th Space Wing Yellow Ribbon Reintegration Program


  The 310th Space Wing held its inaugural
Pikes Peak Yellow Ribbon Reintegration Pro-
gram event on June 12 and 13 at the Antlers
Hilton Hotel in downtown Colorado Springs.
Forty-two Airmen from the 310th Security
Forces Squadron were the first in the wing to
benefit from the Yellow Ribbon Program.
The security forces Airmen recently returned
from a 180+ day tour of duty in Kirkuk Re-
gional Air Base, Iraq.
  The Yellow Ribbon Program came into exis-
tence due to concerns The First Lady of The
United States had about veterans returning
home from combat zones and the impact
these deployments were having on Soldiers,
Sailors, Airmen and Marines.
  In a recent visit to Ft Bragg, First Lady Mi-
chelle Obama urged those on the home front
to reach out to the nation’s veterans.                   Children enjoyed many activities while their parents attended the YRRP event at the Antlers Hilton in

Families, children key issue for chief of staff
  Support for families -- especially in the area of child education -- is a pressing issue for the military. That was the message from
Air Force Chief of Staff Gen. Norton Schwartz and other service representatives during a recent panel discussion focusing on issues
related to the unique situations faced by military children and their education.
      "The very fabric of our society depends on the work that we do in the area of child education," General Schwartz said.
"Considering that children between the ages of 6 and 18 comprise more than 145,000 of our Air Force family members, I see family
support in general, and child education in particular, as important issues we must address urgently."
  One effort to better serve the needs of military families has been the use of school liaison officers, senior installation military
officers who advocate for the needs of military children and attend local school board meetings. Air Force officials are well on the
way to providing each Air Force base with a well-trained and knowledgeable civilian school liaison staff. These resources will help
Airmen make decisions that best fit their unique situation.

CMSAF discusses priorities
  Chief Master Sgt. of the Air Force James A. Roy said he will focus on developing Airmen, which includes reinforcing basic stan-
dards Airmen are taught when they initially join the service. Another one of the chief's priorities is providing a comprehensive sup-
port system for military families and providing full support for wounded warriors.
  Chief Roy also discussed integrating and collaborating with our joint partners. He will advocate creating a different mindset that
puts more focus on the Air Force's joint responsibilities. This includes how Airmen are developed to have joint and coalition vision
to successfully perform the Air Force's global mission.

Air Force Network Operations begins migration to centralized e-mail, network services
  Air Force Chief of Staff Gen. Norton Schwartz signed a directive memorandum recently granting the Air Force Network Opera-
tions commander centralized order-issue authority over the operation, defense, maintenance and control of Air Force networks.
      As part of an ongoing service-wide cyber operations transformation, the Air Force will establish a centralized user directory
and e-mail service known as ADX that will service all Air Force network users. The changes will be relatively transparent to most
network users, but this migration to centralized services will significantly improve security and efficiency on the Air Force Global
Information Grid.
