  • Chief bounces back from hard times, close call with suicide

    I’ve been a photographer in the Air Force for 21 years now, and over that time I’ve met a lot of people from a lot of different backgrounds. I’ve found that everybody has a story to tell, and occasionally I come across a story that really resonates with me. Chief Master Sgt. Stacy Gilman’s story is one.

These Reservists showcase that the Reserve is a lethal, operational force, which provides critical capabilities both at home and abroad.
  • Running With Faith: An Airman's journey to redemption

    Standing there with a knife in hand and cold-hearted from the most devastating news of his life, Master Sgt. Brandan “Troy” Keel contemplated an irreversible decision. Looking into his wife’s eyes after learning she was pregnant with another man’s baby, he couldn’t fathom living anymore. Suicide, he thought, was imminent.
  • 'Wise Guy' Returns: Reservists help bring B-52 back to life

    When then-Capt. Aaron Hedrick helped deliver the B-52 Stratofortress nicknamed “Wise Guy” to the 309th Aerospace Maintnenance and Regeneration Group at Davis-Monthan Air Force Base, Arizona, for decommissioning in 2008, he took the time to scribble a message on a clipboard and leave it in the cockpit.
