Tyndall AFB's 2007 chiefs announced

Tyndall Air Force Base congratu-
lated four individuals selected this year
for promotion to the rank of chief mas-
ter sergeant during a celebration at the
Community Activities Center Annex's
"The Zone" here Wednesday.
Senior Master Sgt. Leonard Krom-
bel, 325th Maintenance Group weap-
ons standardization superintendent,
Senior Master Sgt. Donald Morris,
325th MXG production superinten-
dent, Senior Master Sgt. Richard
Nordstrom, Air Force Civil Engineer
Support Agency emergency manage-
ment support program manager, and
Chief Master Sgt. Leonard Howard,
AFCESA civil engineer career field
manager and individual mobiliza-

tion augmentee, were this year's
Sergeant Krombel said his initial
reaction was of a surreal nature. He
gave the credit of his promotion to
all the people that helped him during
his career.
"It's a group effort to make it to
chief," he said. "I didn't get here
on my own.
Sergeant Nordstrom said being
selected for chief has been a long-
term goal of his.
"It's always been a goal, but I
didn't know if it was attainable," he
said. "I never made the assumption
that I would make it. I just contin-
ued to do the best that I could to
contribute to the Air Force. It's an
honor to be selected."

Chief Howard was notified in June
that he was going to be promoted in
August when he was selected for
his current position, but was recog-
nized Wednesday for being a 2007
Being selected for Chief had a
great personal meaning for him.
"I'm an Air Force brat," he said.
"My mother and father were in the
Air Force, and my brother is in the
Army. I have a sister that is an
airman first class for the Air Force
Personal Center now, so serving in
the military means a lot to my fam-
ily. 'Service to country,' is very
important to us, so to make the top
enlisted rank is a great honor."

Tyndall students learn the value of recycling

Tyndall Elementary students par-
ticipated in America Recycles Day
Nov. 15 by making posters of what
recycling was to them at school.
Students from six different grades
at Tyndall Elementary School were
Preliminary judging was done
Nov. 15 by Sylvia Parzentny, 325th
Civil Engineer Squadron recycling
program manager, and Robert My-
ers, 325th Services Squadron recy-
cling program manager.
"There were more than 100
posters to pick from," said Ms.
Parzentny. "It was extremely hard
to judge."
Ms. Parzentny and Mr. Myers
narrowed the posters down to five
finalists in each grade category
from pre-kindergarten through the
fifth grade.

"The student's put a lot of good
thought into their posters; they
had a pretty good understanding
of what recycling was," said Ms.
Final judging was done by the
Col. David Zeh, 325th Mission
Support Group commander and
Maj. Michael Lamb, 325th SVS
commander Tuesday at Tyndall
Elementary. From each grade,
Colonel Zeh and Major Lamb had
to choose a first place, second
place, third place and two honor-
able mentions.
"It's amazing how the student's
drawings progress each year, you
can really tell," said Major Lamb.
The poster contest not only
helped instill the idea of recycling
to kids at a young age, but also
helped heighten the awareness of
Tyndall Airmen and encouraged
recycling participation at Tyndall.

Airman 1st Class Anthony J Hyatt
Col. David Zeh, 325th Mission Support Group commander
and Maj. Michael Lamb, 325th Services Squadron command-
er judge the five first grade finalist in the Tyndall Elementary
America Recycles Day poster contest.

Colonel Zeh gets in front of Tyndall Elementary's television news broadcast, WTES, and introduces the student body to their
fourth-grade finalists in the poster contest Tuesday morning.

COMM digs themselves deep hole in first half

In the second game of Tyn-
dall Air Force Base's intramural
flag football play-offs, the 325th
Medical Group faced off with the
325th Communications Squadron
Monday night.
The MDG, who earned the fifth
seed in the playoffs, finished the
season with an 11-4 win-loss re-
cord and COMM, with the fourth
seed, finished with a 12-3 record.

During their first meeting in the
regular season, COMM came away
with the victory.
This time it was a different story.
Starting strong, COMM's defense
forced MDG to go three and out to
put the ball in William Gazzaway's
hand, COMM quarterback.
COMM's offense drove all the way
down the field only to have a pass
intercepted by MDG's Otis Latson.
Moving the ball consistently down
the field, MDG quarterback James

Casper scrambled for a touchdown
run to make the score 7-0 MDG.
COMM answered back with a
touchdown pass to even it up at 7-
Applying constant pressure to
Casper, the MDG quarterback was
able to escape and find one of his
wide-receivers wide-open in the end
zone to put MDG back on top 14-7.
Trying to get their offense moving,
Gazzaway and company could only
come away with a long field goal

on their next drive to cut the lead to
14-10 MDG.
Late in the game, COMM had one
more chance to go on top. With the
score 14-10 and with less than three
minutes to go in the game, COMM
failed on fourth down to punch it in
the goal.
"COMM is a good team and I
would not be surprised if we do not
meet them again in the playoffs," said
Mark Estorga, MDG coach..

325th Communications Squadron's flag football team's offense anxiously await their turn on the side lines as their defense
tries to make a stop against the 325th Medical Group's offense from scoring in the second half of the playoffs, here Mon-
day. COMM will play 325th Aircraft Maintenance Squadron 5:30 p.m. today.

OSS starts out hot...

Last week concluded the end of
the regular season for Tyndall Air
Force Base intramural flag football
season, but marked the beginning of
its double-elimination playoffs.
Out of the 16 football teams
from Tyndall, only six teams with
the best records are eligible for the
The 325th Operation Support
Squadron, who finished the regular
season with a 10-5 win-loss record,
earned the 6th seed. They were
matched up Monday night against
the third seeded 325th Services
Squadron, who completed the sea-
son with a 12-3 record.
During the regular season, Ser-
vices and OSS had the chance to feel
one another out Nov. 12. Services
came away with the victory, 21-12.
When Services and OSS met up
again Monday, two very different
teams showed up at this game.
In the first half, Services found
themselves going for it on fourth
down on their first drive of the
game. Failing to convert on the
fourth down, OSS quickly capital-
ized on their mistake scoring on
a long touchdown pass thrown by
Travis Thurmond to make the score
7-0 OSS.
On Services next drive, Jason
Brandy's pass was intercepted by
Jason Conner to return the ball back

to OSS.
Again, OSS's Thurmond connect-
ed with another one of his receivers
to score another touchdown to make
the score 14-0 OSS.
It didn't get any better for Ser-
vices as Conner picked off another
one of Brandy's passes.
Continuing to stick with the pass-
ing game, OSS scored with their
third touchdown pass of the game
to increase their lead to 21-0.
Getting the ball back one more
time before the end of the first half,
OSS put up another touchdown to
make the score 28-0.
At the end of the first half, Ser-
vices had a long way to go, but they
didn't go down without a fight. Ser-
vices finally got on the board early
in the second half, with a touchdown
pass to cut the score to 28-7.
OSS's offense was finally stopped
and they were forced to punt.
With time becoming an issue,
Services had to get in "hurry-up"
mode. Still fighting, Services
added another seven points with a
touchdown pass to cut the lead in
half, 28-14.
In the end, OSS was able to hold
off the comeback and come away
with the victory.
"OSS's quarterback was very
accurate tonight and we waited too
long into the game to switch up our
defense," said Brian Denny, Ser-
vices coach.
