The wait is over: ABUs land at Tyndall

After what has been a three-month
wait for some, the Airman Battle
Uniform is available for purchase at
the Tyndall Air Force Base Military
Clothing Sales store.
The uniform went on sale Tuesday
for Tyndall AFB senior leaders to get
fitted, and Wednesday for the rest
of the base population, Ms. Kellett
"We got four palettes of the new
uniform last week," said Candice
Kellett, Military Clothing Sales and
Class Six branch manager. "We got
other pieces of the shipment before
then," she said.
"We have very few sizes for the
time being, so we're limiting each
customer to one full set so everyone
on base gets a chance to purchase
them," Ms. Kellett said. "But now
we can start ordering shipments, so
more will be here in the future."
Ms. Kellet said she doesn't know
exactly when they'll get more, but
she's hoping to get the next shipment
in February.
The high demand for the uniform
brought a large volume of customers
into the store for the debut.
"It's been a mad house here today,"

2nd Lt. David Yu, 325th Air Control Squadron student, and SeniorAir-
man Dustin McCroskey, 325th Security Forces Squadron patrolman,
search through a box of Airman Battle Uniforms at Military Clothing
Sales Wednesday. Military Clothing Sales management hopes to get
another shipment of the uniform in February.

said Mary Lattal, senior associate.
"We've been busy since we opened
up this morning."
2nd Lieutenant David Yu, 325th Air
Control Squadron student, decided to
buy the ABU to cut costs.
"I bought the uniform to save time
and money from starching, ironing
and shining," the lieutenant said.
Senior Airman Dustin McCroskey,
325th Security Forces Squadron
patrolman said he heard from a friend

of a friend that the uniform was going
to be available and wanted to get to
the store on the first day to be able to
get his size.
"I needed new uniforms anyway,"
the Airman said. "I wanted to hold off
until the ABU got here so I wouldn't
have to buy all new uniforms when
they become mandatory."
Airman McCrosky also said he
liked the style the ABU.
"They look really good," he said.

Team Tyndall gives life through blood

Members from Tyndall Air Force
Base gathered at the Community
Activities Center to help donate blood
to the Armed Services Blood Program
Technicians from the 81st Medical
Operations Squadron's donar center
from Keesler AFB, Miss. arrived

Tuesday evening to support the
operation. Keesler's center is one of
three in the Air Force.
"The blood collected byASBP comes
from the military for the military,"
said 2nd Lt. Caitlin Harris, 325th
Contracting Squadron contracting
specialist and blood drive coordinator.
One pint of blood can save up to four
lives, said the lieutenant.

Atotal of 77 members donated blood
at the drive.
'We had nearly 100 people show up
to donate, but we had to defer some
of them because they weren't able to
donate today," said Lieutenant Harris.
Some of the reasons for deferment
are if the donar:
*had contact with blood or body
fluids through injury, accidental needle

GMH to open new doors for military families

The Gary Michael Holloway Mili-
tary Housing office anticipates con-
struction completion on its first 28
homes at Redfish Point's extension
late February.
Redfish Extension is projected to
have 209 new homes; 116 houses
comprised of three and four bedrooms
will be reserved forjunior enlisted and
93 houses comprised of three and four
bedrooms reserved for company grade
The families who will have move-
in priority on the 28 homes are being
relocated due to the scheduled demoli-
tion in Wood Manor. Families on the
"wait list" for base housing are second
in line, explained Mrs. Teri Henry,
GMH Military Housing community
The government has taken steps to

ensure military families are well taken
care of.
According to the GMH office, if
military members are directed to move
due to immediately scheduled demoli-
tion or renovation of a current home,
the government will reimburse the
military member. The military member
will then have a choice to complete a
"do it yourself' move or have a profes-
sional carrier move them.
Currently, there is only one area of
Wood Manor scheduled for demoli-
tion Sentry Lane located off Sabre
Drive individuals here will have
first priority to the new housing, said
Mrs. Henry.
"Once the first two priorities are
exhausted, relocation availability and
policy information will be provided to
current (Wood Manor) residents," said
Mrs. Henry.
