The 19th Operations Support Squadron airfield management facility is responsible for the busiest single runway in the Air Force. Kerry Miller, 19th OSS airfield manager, and his team of 11, manage the airfield like a facility. The group inspects runways, taxiways, parking aprons, signs and lighting. Along with inspections, the team operates 24 hours a day to respond to in-flight emergencies and reports of wildlife and foreign object debris on the runway. The team coordinates airfield support with other Team Little Rock members such as the 19th Civil Engineer Squadron, maintenance squadrons, the command post and fire department. For their work, the 19th OSS airfield operations flight was recognized as Air Mobility Command’s Airfield Management facility of the Year for 2013. .

Police jurisdiction: Where to draw the line

Driving throughout Little Rock Air Force Base, it is common to see a member of the 19th Security Forces Squadron patrolling the streets, checking identification at the base gates or responding to emergency calls. While security forces patrols all areas of the base and enforces base regulations and laws inside the gate, their jurisdiction does not end there.

SAPR Program Elements

The Department of Defense along with Sexual Assault Prevention and Response Office officials have developed a strategy for promoting a safe working environment for Airmen by creating a program that teaches awareness and support through many different types of learning scenarios. The different avenues of education on sexual assault awareness provides information needed to aid in preventing a sexual assault from happening.

Growing friendships and hardy plants

Have a green thumb? The Little Rock Family Housing has a community garden for all base housing residents to use.
The garden currently consists of 16 beds, and eight more beds will be available if enough members are interested. Plots can be shared as well. If a whole plot is too big for one individual, he or she can share with a friend or a neighbor.
