Doolittle Raiders Memorial Toast April 18 – Join Air & Space Forces Association’s Doolittle Leadership Center and members around the world for the Doolittle Raiders Memorial Toast, a heritage event commemorating the Doolittle Raid’s 82nd anniversary. The April 18 ceremony will be livestreamed on YouTube. Learn how to participate here. Gen. Thomas Bussiere, commander of Air Force Global Strike Command, will be the event’s keynote speaker and toastmaster. Join us as we revive this decades-old Air Force tradition first started by Gen. Jimmy Doolittle—AFA’s founding president—and his fellow Raiders in 1946.

Honor Flight April 20 – It’s that time again for Honor Flight Dayton to take our heroes from World War II, Korea, the Cold War and Vietnam to Washington to see their memorials. The year’s first flight is April 20 and we’d love to have you at the airport to welcome them home. The flight will arrive around 8:15 p.m.

There are two options at Dayton International Airport: First, you can get a gate pass from American Airlines (recommend no later than 7:30 p.m.), go through security and be at the gate when the veterans get off the airplane. (With this option, you will need to stay at the gate until all are off the plane and they have walked out to the front of the airport). The second option is to meet them by the ticket counter. Many people will be out there – to include bands, Junior ROTC units, Boy and Girl scouts, Civil Air Patrol and other groups. This is a great event and organizers would love to have a large crowd welcoming our veterans home. If you are military, especially if coming to the gate, wear your uniform—the veterans love to see that.

For more information about the homecoming or Honor Flight Dayton in general, reach out to Kelley Cox at kelley.m.cox10@gmail.com or Diana Pry at dpry@woh.rr.com.

Honor Flight Dayton also has flights scheduled for June 1, Aug. 10 and Sept. 21.

Better Business Bureau free shredding event April 20 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. – Identity theft happens annually to thousands of Americans. In recent years, it has skyrocketed. Experts believe these cases occur so often that there is a new victim every 22 seconds. According to the National Council on Identity Theft Protection, of the 5.7 million cases reported to the Federal Trade Commission, 1.4 million (25%) were specific to identity theft. Be sure to protect your identity and not become a victim.

To help fight back against identity theft, the Better Business Bureau is offering a free shredding event April 20 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Routsong Funeral Home in Centerville. This is a great way to safely dispose of your documents – including credit card statements, old checks and IRS tax returns.

If you believe you’re an identity theft victim, report it to BBB.org/scamtracker or ftc.gov/complaint. For more information about identity theft, visit bbb.org/all/scamtips or call 937-222-5825 or 800-776-5301.

AIR FORCE ASSISTANCE FUNDcampaign ends April 26 – With two weeks remaining, Wright-Patterson AFB sat at only 30% of its $73,369 goal. Over the past few years, participation rates among military members have dropped from about 30% to below 5%. There are many times we decide to put off until tomorrow what we can do today, and we simply forget when life happens. The Air Force Assistance Fund campaign is an opportunity to take care of our own, and it would be incredible to see more give just a little rather than a few giving a lot.

AFAF’s charities do phenomenal work and strive to take care of fellow Airmen and Guardians. The Air Force Aid Society has helped 7,600 Airmen in a single quarter, while other affiliated charities continually help the surviving spouses of retired Airmen and Guardians. We can play a part in those stories by simply giving what we’re able today – because we may be the ones who need assistance tomorrow.

If your unit keyworker has already reached out but you haven’t yet donated, consider doing so today. Or if you prefer, you can simply give online at 2024 AFAF Campaign (qgiv.com). With this link, you’ll be able to locate your unit when donating and WPAFB will be credited.

For more information, visit www.afassistancefund.org. You can also reach out to the installation project officers: Master Sgt. Lindsey Duggins at lindsey.duggins@us.af.mil or Master Sgt. Jay Perez at johnmarth.d.perez.mil@health.mil.

EARN BENEFITS THROUGH PUBLIC-TRANSPORTATION PROGRAM

If you’re concerned about the high cost of gasoline, traffic congestion or air pollution, you may be interested in the Mass Transportation Benefit Program.

MTBP makes it possible for Wright-Patterson Air Force Base personnel to be reimbursed up to $245 a month for utilizing public transportation as a means to travel to and from work.

The program is open to all civilian employees (appropriated and nonappropriated), military members and reservists on active duty. Contractors are not eligible.

The Mass Transportation Benefit Program is limited to vanpools, Greater Dayton Regional Transit Authority and Greene CATS Public Transit riders. Carpools do not meet reimbursement criteria.

Compensation is paid in the form of vouchers and debit cards funded through the Department of Transportation, 88th Force Support Squadron officials said. Personnel normally receive vouchers on a quarterly basis and must sign for them.

Registration and program participation are simple. An eligible employee or service member adhering to all governing rules and regulations via public transportation submits an application package to Program Manager Shawnetta White of the 88 FSS Civilian Personnel Office, who will forward it to DOT.

To obtain an application or more information, contact her at shawnetta.white@us.af.mil or 937-904-3272.
