Threatening clouds may have moved the 27th Annual "Massing of the

Cocoa Campus of Brevard Community College. but that didn't mean
spirits weren't lifted during the 75-minute service held Wednesday after-
noon before a packed house. Local leaders in attendance included (above,

Corinne Naughton, commander, 45th Medical Group, CAPT. James Kuzma,
commander, NOTU, Commander Ann Burkhardt, Chief Staff Officer, DEOMI,
Chief Master Sgt. John Nederhoed, AFTAC superintendent, Col. Lisa Ann

and Sgt. Roberto Sanchez of Satellite Beach, who both died this year in the

By Brig. Gen.
Edward L. Bolton, Jr.
Commander 45th Space Wing

I'm sure by now you are aware of
the tragic shootings at Fort Hood,
Texas.
First and foremost, our thoughts
and prayers go out to the Soldiers,
DoD civilians and their families in
this terrible, most trying time.
We in the military are one family,
and we take pride in caring for all
our members.
These are stressful times--stress
comes from many sources includ-
ing finances, health, and military
and personal matters at work and
at home.
It's very important to recognize
that people react and cope differ-
ently in stressful situations.
Last Friday, we came together
for Wingman Day in a commitment
to support and care for each other.
Please continue to show this com-
mitment daily by really getting to
know your Wingmen, other fellow
Airmen, coworkers, family mem-
bers and friends.
When we notice anyone who


seems the least bit troubled or
struggling to cope, please take time
to make sure they get help imme-
diately.
There are many programs in
place for Airmen to get the support
they need. Counseling and men-
tal health treatment are available
through a variety of programs and
offices on base. The Patrick Mental
Health Clinic is here for help deal-
ing with stress, deployments and
family difficulties. Getting help is
easier than it was years ago and
no longer carries the stigmas of the
past.
Remember we have several confi-
dential ways to help each other. One
is our Chaplaincy our Chaplains
are here for our spiritual services
and guidance as well as support

Tell them how much you appreciate them


By Maj. Chad Simpson
Commander,
45th Force Support Squadron

On 17 July 17, 2009, the Chief
of Staff of the Air Force designated
this as the Year of the Air Force
Family. I have been married for
just over 10 years and have five
wonderful children. I believe the
Air Force will do everything it can
to take care of my family, but am
I personally doing what I should
to show my appreciation for my
family?
I would encourage each of you to
ask this question of yourself. We all
have families who have contributed
to our Air Force career. Whether
it is your wife and kids, your boy-
friend, girlfriend or fiance, or your


Commander's Corner

mother or father figure, there is
someone who has been there to
encourage you and sacrifice so that
you could have a successful career.
When people are asked why they
joined the military there are always
a variety of answers. Some joined
for an education, for patriotism, or
to see the world. It may be that you
joined because you felt an obliga-
tion to protect the way of life that
your parents provided for you or for
a stable job with exceptional ben-
efits. However, ultimately I would
argue that most reasons come back
to family.
We work long hours, weekends,
and holidays. We pull our children


out of school and break our spous-
es' social networks for the next
assignment. We leave our families
to go half way around the world to
protect them. But when was the
last time that you hugged them and
said thank you for all they do and
sacrifice?
They move without us, they keep
dinner warm when we are late, and
cry when members of the media
talk about explosions in our Area
Of Responsibility. They are there for
each other, but most importantly
they are there for us. I cannot imag-
ine life without them and I don't say
thank you enough. Go home, kiss
your spouse, hug your kids, call
your mom or dad, but above all else
tell them how much you appreciate
all they do.


and counseling.
The Airman & Family Readiness
Center supports deployed members
and their families, and provides
access to an entire gamut of servic-
es. For those with financial difficul-
ties, the center provides financial
counseling, personal assessments
and referrals.
Also, the Employee Assistance
Program is designed to help our
DoD civilians, and Family Advocacy
is available to assist military mem-
bers and their families. Please use
them.
Another confidential resource is
the Military Family Life Consultant,
a licensed counselor who provides
non-medical, short-term problem-
solving services to help service
members and their families cope
with reactions to often adverse situ-
ations caused by deployments and
reintegration.
Counselors are available to meet
both on and off base, but not at
homes; call direct at 482-4970.
Again, please ensure we are out-
standing Wingmen every day and
keep the Soldiers and their families
in our thoughts and prayers.

We're over the top!

"Your generosity will touch so many people in need; I'm so proud to be
your commander," said Brig. Gen. Edward L. Bolton, Jr.


45th Space Wing
Public Affairs

Thanks to the over-
whelming generosity
of the people of the
45 Space Wing and
its Mission Partners,
we have exceeded our
goal of $190K.
As of this writing,
we have raised more
than $204,000 from
more than 1,200 indi-
vidual donators for
2010, and the num-
bers keep coming in.
Despite a sour
economy, a work-
force recovering
from months of ORI
preparations, and two
four-day workweeks


during the campaign,
installation members
dug deep and made a
significant difference
in the lives of a lot of
people.
"Well, I wish I could
say I'm surprised we
surpassed our goal,
but I'm not," said
Brig. Gen. Edward
L. Bolton, Jr., com-
mander, 45th Space
Wing. "As I said a few
weeks ago when this
campaign started,
I thought this year,
maybe more than any
in the recent past, our
employees will find a
way to help so many
of their co-workers,
friend and neighbors


who could really be
hurting. Well, it turns
out I was right, and
I could not be more
pleased," he said.
The CFC is one of
only two fund-rais-
ing efforts endorsed
by the U.S. Air Force.
There are literally
thousands of charities
from which to choose
from. One in four
federal employees, or
their dependents, will
benefit from the CFC
this year alone.
"Your generosity
will touch so many
people in need; I'm
so proud to be your
commander," said
Gen. Bolton.

President Kennedy's three visits


By Mark C. Cleary
45th SW History Office

During his admin-
istration, President
John F. Kennedy vis-
ited Cape Canaveral
and (what would
become) the Kennedy
Space Center three
times.
His last visit,
on Nov. 16, 1963,
was less than a
week before his
tragic assassina-
tion in Dallas, Texas.
President Kennedy
was the nation's
leading champion in
our early rivalry with
the Soviet Union in
what became known
as 'the Space Race.'
His whirlwind tours
here in 1962 and
1963, however brief,
were highly sym-
bolic and significant
events.
The occasion for
President Kennedy's
first visit to the Cape
was the 'Welcome
Back' ceremony for
Astronaut John H.
Glenn, Jr. on Feb.
23, 1962. Lt. Colonel
Glenn had just com-
pleted America's
first manned orbital
space mission, and
the President and his
entourage participat-
ed in the festivities.
The President
also made a speech
at NASA's Manned
Spacecraft Center
for the host of dig-
nitaries, press,
and onlookers who


attended the event.
His second visit on
Sept. 11, 1962 was
part of an elaborate
two-day-long tour of
America's major space
centers. The President
and his immediate
party arrived by jet at
the Cape's Skid Strip
around 2:30 p.m.,
shortly after a tour
of Redstone Arsenal
and the Marshall
Spaceflight Center
in Huntsville, Ala.,
earlier in the day.
The group included
Vice President Lyndon
B. Johnson, Defense
Secretary Robert S.
McNamara, NASA
Administrator James
E. Webb, Budget
Director David E.
Bell, and members of
the Senate and House
Space Committees.
The White House
Press Corps was also
out in force.
The President's
group passed launch
stands along 'Missile
Row' at the Cape
during the tour.
At Complex 14,
Astronaut Walter
M. "Wally" Schirra
briefed the President
on Schirra's upcom-
ing Mercury-Atlas
space flight.
The President
viewed a Titan II
missile on its launch
pad, and he received
a briefing on the Air
Force's new Titan IIIC
space launch vehicle
program.

Director David E. Bell, and members of the Senate and House Space Committees.


Petrone, NASA's
Project Coordinator,
briefed NASA's Saturn
C-1 program as the
group stood near the
310-foot-tall Saturn
service structure.
At Hangar "S,"
Astronaut Gordon
Cooper briefed Project
Mercury, and he
discussed the space
capsule's features
with the President.
After speaking briefly
to Air Force Missile


Test Center employees
and newsmen, Mr.
Kennedy continued on
his way to Houston,
Texas, the same day.
President Kennedy's
final visit came on
Nov. 16, 1963, and
gave the former naval
officer and World War
II combat veteran a
chance to witness a
Polaris missile launch
at sea.
Standing on the
deck of the Launch


Area Support Ship
(LASS) Observation
Island 32 miles off
the Florida coast, the
President saw the
missile break the sur-
face of the water less
than a mile away.
The President had
flown up to the Cape
from his winter
home in Palm Beach,
Florida, earlier in the
day.
In addition to
the Polaris launch,


he received Saturn
program briefings
from Dr. Wernher von
Braun and George E.
Meuller.
He also flew over
Merritt Island's
sprawling complex
in a helicopter on
his way out to the
Observation Island.
The Polaris launch
was the last event
of the day. In Mr.
Kennedy's words, "it
was wonderful."

Back to School

Tech Sgt. Eric Brown, 45th Space Wing
Communications Squadron, stands at
attention during the playing of all five service
songs while taking part in a
"Veterans Day Celebration" held
at Sea Park Elementary School on
South Patrick Drive Monday morning.
Sgt. Brown was one of 15 45th Space Wing
Airmen to spend time at the local school.
"Sea Park Elementary School would like to
extend their gratitude to all the Patrick Airmen
who volunteered their time at the recent
Veteran's Day Celebration. They shared their
personal stories in classrooms and there was
a special student program honoring those who
serve. The Airmen provided an invaluable
experience for all students,"
