The aerial delivery section of the 19th Logistics Readiness Squadron plays a huge role in Team Little Rock’s mission. A team of 39 Airmen and 11 civilians are responsible for rigging, recovering and repairing cargo platforms. On average, ten pallets are prepared by riggers each day. The riggers work throughout the day preparing platforms for descent from The Rock’s C-130s. The mission that is completed by the riggers is essential in the aid of ground forces down range. Fifty-eight percent of the Department of Defense’s unilateral airdrop training is done at Little Rock Air Force Base.. (U.S. Air Force photo by Senior Airman Kaylee Clarkl)

Critical days of summer: water/boat safety

Airmen and families at Little Rock Air Force Base are looking for ways to stay cool this summer. One of the most popular ways to beat the heat without remaining indoors is water activities.

Fighting depression
with sweat and community

What if I told you a very effective treatment for depressive symptoms in many people might be a pair of running shoes, some dumbbells, and a group of friends? You would probably say you’re just one of those happy fitness people with no problems who thinks a good run, weight training and a party solves everything. Surprisingly, recently published, peer-reviewed research supports aerobic and resistance training as well as community involvement as an effective treatment for depression in many patients..

Step in and intervene

Have you ever been in a situation where you didn’t do something you should have and felt the regret, guilt and hope for a second chance afterward? Maybe you’ve been in a setting where you thought about cutting your friend off from those last few drinks. Maybe you could have stepped in when they were crossing the line of respect, but instead you did nothing.
