Have you ever watched a war
movie that moved you so much
that you just cried inside and
out, feeling with your heart that
the men and women being por-
trayed were fighting for a noble
cause-perhaps "Saving Private
Ryan," or "Black Hawk Down"?
What if you learned that one
of those men in the actual battle
of Mogadishu, Somalia, (the bat-
tle that "Black Hawk Down" is
based on) was a Floridian, and
that, although he survived that
battle, he once again risked his
life 11 years later, this time sac-
rificing it in the war in Iraq?
This man has a name: Aaron
A. Weaver. He had a family. He
had a life and a purpose aside
from serving his country. But he
gave it all up, and for that we
should not forget that this man
was a living person. You can see
his face, along with those of 216

Joint Chief of Staffs Chairman Adm. Mike Mullen makes a point during a news conference.
JCS chief says military
ready to follow Obama
By Samantha L. Quigley
American Forces Press Service
Whatever decisions President-
elect Barack Obama makes
regarding Iraq and Afghanistan,
the military is prepared to carry
them out, the chairman of the
Joint Chiefs of Staff said in an
interview Sunday on the CBS
TV show "60 Minutes."
Obama gets in and says,
'Here's the decision,' the
United States military, led by
me, is going to march off and
execute that decision," Navy
Adm. Mike Mullen told corre-
spondent David Martin.

Mullen to tell led by

dent what it and ex

himself what it will take to get
140,000 troops out of the coun-
"I don't think it's 'Mission
Impossible,'" Mullen said, not-
ing that the president-elect has
said consistently that he wants
to withdraw troops responsibly.
"Certainly, a responsible
withdrawal ... is, I think, a
very, very possible outcome
here, given what I've seen tran-
spire over the last couple of
years and literally what I saw
walking the streets of Samarra,"
the chairman said.
Samarra is home to the al-
Askari Mosque, a Shiia Muslim
shrine also known as "the
Golden Mosque." The February
2006 bombing of the mosque
sparked sectarian violence that
nearly tore Iraq apart. The
structure is now being rebuilt.
Mullen also made his way to
Afghanistan during his pre-hol-
iday trip, and he said he stands
by his earlier assessment that
"we are not winning" the war
"I said it because I believed
it, and I still believe it," he said.
"I think the level of violence in
2008 surprised us all. The
sophistication of the tactics of
the insurgency surprised us all."

upswing in violence in
Afghanistan includes more

"The exact number isn't
known," he acknowledged. "I
talked ... about a range
between 20,000 and 30,000."
That would nearly double
the number of troops fighting
the insurgency in Afghanistan.
But even increased troop num-
bers won't do any good unless
the insurgent safe haven in
Pakistan is mitigated, the admi-
ral said. Pakistan shares a bor-
der with Afghanistan, and
Taliban extremists have been
using safe havens within
Pakistan to plan and train for
attacks inside Afghanistan.
"That safe haven's got to be
shut down to a level where it
doesn't have the effect that it's
having now," Mullen said. "In
the long run, if that is not done,
then additional troops are not
going to have that big an

U.S. deaths in Iraq
decreased in 2008
I0 attacks a day in 2008,
compared to 180 in 2007
By John J. Kruzel
American Forces Press Service
The number of U.S. military fatalities in Iraq in 2008 fell
two-thirds compared with the previous year, underscoring an
improvement in security amid upcoming provincial elections.
Last year's casualty figure-314-marks a sharp reduction
from 2007 when 904 troops died. The 2008 tally comes on the
heels of a week in which the number of daily attacks in Iraq
dropped nearly 95 percent compared to the same time last year.
"This is a dramatic improvement of safety throughout the
country," Army Brig. Gen. David G. Perkins, a Multinational
Force Iraq spokesman, told reporters in Baghdad last week,
when the average number of daily attacks in Iraq was 10, com-
pared to 180 a year earlier.
He added that the country's murder rates have dropped
below levels that existed before the start of American opera-
tions in Iraq. In November, the ratio was .9 per 100,000 people.
Military and Defense Department officials have attributed
security gains over the past year to a host of factors, including
the now-completed surge of U.S. forces, Sunni fighters aligning
themselves with Iraqi and coalition forces to help purge al-
Qaida and maintain security, and a cease-fire pledge by promi-
nent Shiite cleric Moqtada al-Sadr, who controlled several mili-
Overall violence in Iraq has fallen some 80 percent since the
surge of 33,000 U.S. forces began in January 2007.
Speaking in October about the reduced bloodshed in Iraq,
Navy Adm. Mike Mullen, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff,
emphasized the role of reinvigorated counterinsurgency tactics.
Put simply, counterinsurgency is a form of warfare in which
a civilian population is in the center of a tug-of-war between an
insurgency and the forces attempting to stop it. The Army and
Marine Corps in late 2006 published a counterinsurgency strat-
egy written by a host of contributors, including Army Gen.
David H. Petraeus, who implemented its tenets while serving
for 20 months as the top U.S. commander in Iraq.
"In my view, what really turned it around was the counterin-
surgency tactics our troops embraced and perfected," Mullen
said Oct. 8 at the annual Association of the U.S. Army confer-
While the security gains are significant, Army Gen.
Raymond T. Odiemo, Multinational Force Iraq commander,
warned in an interview with reporters in Baghdad last month
against becoming complacent amid Iraq's improved security, a
transfer of authority to Iraqi forces and an upcoming election.
"In military terms, transitions are the most dangerous
times," the general said Dec. 23. "What we're trying to do is
make sure we don't have any seams in our transition."
A piece of legislation hammered out by Washington and
Baghdad-known as the Status of Forces Agreement -went
into effect Jan. 1. The agreement supersedes the United Nations
mandate for the coalition presence in Iraq, and transfers mili-
tary operational authority to Iraqi forces with U.S. forces
assuming a support, or "overwatch," role.
The deal becomes effective ahead of the scheduled Jan. 31
provincial elections in Iraq, which Odiemo characterized as the
next security test for combined forces.
"Al-Qaida will try to exploit the elections because they don't
want them to happen. So I think they will attempt to create
some violence and uncertainty in the population," he said. "The
next 60 days are a critical period."

Lions and tigers and bears...

Monday, Jan. 26, at the

Fort Walton Beach. The popular
Circus Pages (pronounced pah-

ness that is definitely family
friendly, will put on two shows
Circus Pages was started in
Cuba in the 1960s by Jose Pages.
Today, Circus Pages is still fami-
ly-owned and operated, with sev-
eral generations of Pages, as well
as an international crew perform-
ing in the show. Circus Pages
travels year-round, performing all
over North America.
Each hour-and-a-half long
spectacular includes elephants,
rare white tigers, lions, trained
dogs, ponies, horses, camels and
more. There are acrobats on tram-
polines, and rings, jugglers and
magic shows. The show is per-
formed very close to the audi-
ence, and the circular stage makes
it easy to see everything. Several
acts include volunteers from the
audience, so everyone feels they
are a part of the fun.
Ringmaster James Earhart said
people are surprised by the expe-
rience of an up-close encounter
with the show.
"That's one of the biggest
compliments that we hear,"
Earhart said. "Out of all of our e-
mails, that's the part we really
hear, when people get so close to
the elephants. They don't realize
how big an elephant is, because

The lions and tigers prepare to begin their part of the show... Grrrr!
in the large arena circuses, the
elephant looks like an ant."
During the large cat show, a
circular cage is set up so the lions
and tigers cannot escape. Nervous
parents and children watch as two
trainers enter the cage and coax
the huge animals to jump, stand
on hind legs and perform other
tricks. Last year one of the tigers
was a bit edgy and growled at his
trainer during the show. The audi-
ence gasped, but the show went
When the acrobats came out,
many wondered how they would
perform their feats inside such a
small room, as, unlike the usual
high-ceilings of a circus arena,
the fairgrounds building had a rel-
atively low ceiling. But these
acrobats were able to trampoline,
do flips and twists, and still keep
it low enough to avoid hitting the
ceiling. This astounded the audi-
ence even more because of the
great precision it took for the
acrobats to accomplish their act.
"We make it work wherever
we go," Earhart said of the chal-
lenges they face with small build-
ings. "We try to make it work all
over the nation. People notice the
small building and expect less
because of it, but they always go

favorites. "We got to ride on the
elephants," she said. "The funni-
est part was when the little clown
came out with all the rats, and
they fell out of his pants!" Even
parents find themselves enjoying

(Jones, director of the Air Force
Armament Museum) if he would
receive us, then we asked the
base (Eglin) and they jumped up
and down at the idea."
The mural was unveiled last
January at the Air Force
Armament Museum as the first
of its kind.
"Eglin Air Force Base is the
first and only museum to have a
memorial like this," said Everett.
"We are the first state to have it,
and the first for a portable dis-
play." The Darbonnes have also
created portable displays for
Florida and Texas.
The first few panels of the Purple Heart photo mural.
As of right now, Florida is
also the only state to have a per-
manent memorial for the heroes
of the conflicts in Iraq and
"We are working on trying to
do one for every state," said a
hopeful Glynis Darbonne. "We
will have one ready for
Mississippi on the 31st of
January." These portable dis-
plays travel around their home
state to different military func-
tions honoring the fallen heroes
in a tangible way.
Jones said it is easy to look at
the soldiers' pictures and see a
familiar resemblance to someone
you know. He said he has
noticed people looking at the
mural and saying things like,
"Doesn't that look like Uncle
Joe?" and "That girl looks
younger than Julie." Jones noted
that 34 of the faces in the
memorial wall are from the four
local counties surrounding
Eglin: Escambia, Okaloosa,
Walton and Santa Rosa.
Everett described how he
goes about attaining the pictures
for the mural.
"What I do is pick up the
phone and call the family, tell
them who we are and what we
want to do for them," he said.
He said that last year at the
unveiling, they held a large cere-
mony at the museum with 250
Patriot Guards (independent vol-

unteers who honor fallen mili-
tary members) riding motorcy-
cles to escort the families.
Everett said they also held sever-
al small quiet ceremonies for
families whose loved ones have
been added to the wall since
The museum plans its next
large event to honor the fallen
heroes, prisoners of war and
those missing in action, for mid-
September. The mural's first
heroes date to 2002, Phil
Darbonne remarked. "When it's
all said and done, we will add
one last panel with all the statis-
tics on it," he said, adding with a
hopeful gleam in his eye, "Boy I
can't wait to make that one."
Chief of staff visits Hurlburt
By Jodi L. Jordan
505 Command and Control Wing
The Air Force's top
officer met airmen of Hurlburt
Field and discussed the
importance of command and
control to the joint team Jan.
Gen. Norton Schwartz
spent time with the airmen of
the 505th Command and
Control Wing, a unit charged
with improving and standard-
izing tactics, training, testing,
exercises, and experimenta-
tion for command of air and
space power in the joint and
"It's wonderful to be back
here at Hurlburt," said
Schwartz, who has been sta-
tioned at the base three times,
including a tour as the com-
mander of the 16th Special
Operations Wing from 1995
Col. Jack Shanahan, 505th
CCW commander, briefed
Schwartz on the wing's mis-
sion as the Air Force's only
wing dedicated to operational-
level command and control.
The 505th CCW, made up of
only about 900 people, is also
the lead agency for integrat-
ing command and control
processes across the Air
Despite the small size of
the 505th CCW, Schwartz rec-
ognized the impact the wing
brings to the Air Force mis-
"Our Air Force offers an
array of capabilities for our
joint team, and the discipline
that brings them all together
is command and control,"
Schwartz said. "When we in
the Air Force say 'everybody
matters,' well, the 505th CCW

The U.S. Air Force Academy
was named one of the nation's
top 100 best value colleges for
2009 by The Princeton Review
The Best Values College List
features 50 public and 50 private
The Princeton Review selected
these institutions as its "best
value" choices for 2009 based on
its surveys of administrators and
students at more than 650 public
and private colleges and universi-
ties. The selection criteria covered
more than 30 factors in three
areas: academics, costs of atten-
dance and financial aid using the
most recently reported data from
each institution for its 2007
through 2008 academic year.
"The Air Force Academy is
honored to earn this distinction,'
said Brig. Gen. Dana H. Born, the
dean of the faculty. "It is further
recognition of the great effort we
are making in providing cadets
with not just a world-class educa-
tion, but a full spectrum of learn-
ing experiences that develop their
character and leadership so they
become officers who are ready to
meet the challenge of serving the
Air Force and the nation."
The Princeton Review has also
recognized the Academy's aca-
demic prowess in previous years.
In Princeton Review's Annual
Best Colleges book, it has named
the Academy the nation's No. 1
college for professor availability
for the past four years, as well as
highlighting other Academy aca-
demic strengths including a stu-
dent-faculty ratio of 8:1, an aver-
age class size of 20, and zero
classes taught by teaching assis-
