Spiritual fitness doesn’t necessarily mean ensuring you regularly go to a personal place of worship. Ramstein’s religious support teams—one chaplain and one chaplain assistant—are on standby to assist Airmen in crisis, who need religious support, or who just want to talk things out without fear of retribution.

One of the keys to mission success in the Air Force is readiness. Unfortunately, equipment or machinery don’t always make that easy. When an aircraft breaks down or malfunctions at a base or area that isn’t equipped to fix the problem, what can be done? Within the European, Central and African commands (EUCOM, CENTCOM, AFRICOM), the answer to that question is sending a mission ready team (MRT), often manned by Airmen assigned to the 721st Aircraft Maintenance Squadron. Four 721st AMXS Airmen experienced this first hand when they participated in an MRT for an engine change of a C-17 Globemaster III from Sept. 2 to 9, 2016 at Ali Al Salem Air Base, Kuwait. There were only two maintenance Airmen assigned to Ali Al Salem, so they required assistance from the 721st AMXS Airmen.

The ground rumbles as a C-17 Globemaster III taxis to the runway, sending vibrations up the soles of the feet of those on the flightline. The roar of the 280,000 pound, four-engine aircraft reverberates throughout the base before it takes off. Defying gravity, it lifts into the air and slowly disappears into the horizon. When many people think of the Air Force, the first things that come to mind are aircraft and the pilots who fly them. But before any pilot takes to the skies, every aircraft is carefully inspected and maintained by maintenance professionals. The 721st Aircraft Maintenance Squadron plays a large part in keeping the steady flow of aircraft, in and out of Ramstein, operational.

Going into work filled with dread is something everyone has experienced at one time or another. Knowing that you have piles of work to catch up on, or that it’s going to be a particularly busy day is one thing.
