What could be better? Welcome home, Airmen.
#Didyouknow the first woman enlisted in the @usairforce #onthisday in 1948? Staff Sgt. Esther Blake joined the Army Air Corps in 1944 and became the first woman to enlist in the Air Force on the first day women were accepted into the service. Blake, who had sons in World War II, wanted to join the military to help end the war and bring her sons home. Women weren’t allowed in combat, but they were able to serve, freeing up the men from clerical roles and sending them to the battlefield. Blake served active duty until 1954.
As of March 31, 2017, there were 66 confirmed or pending cases of suicide of Airmen that occurred during CY 2016. The same data suggests that 19.7 percent of those who died by suicide had communicated their desire prior to engaging in the behavior. Suicide is not limited to Airmen who have deployed or will deploy, nor is it bound by rank or gender or ethnicity. Always remember the importance of embracing the wingman culture. We are all integral pieces in the machine, and we cannot run effectively without one another. Resources are available.
