"My Airman's Memory Book"
This is the Intellectual Property of Lorraine Silva
You may find that we have so much information that you get
overwhelmed. That's ok, here is a tip. If you find something that
you like or think you'll need, print it out. Remember all this
information is put together for your personal use. Have fun and make
it personal! Print out their Mascot that you can find in the TRS/FLT
Event, or print out a special photo that reminds you of them.
Here's a wonderful suggestion, once you have printed and have all
your documents inserted you'll be set to go. Once you get back home
make it your memory book. Make sure you've made copies of all the
letters you've sent and also insert all the letters you've received.
Don't forget to print out your
Airman's Moms Creed and add it too.
Organization is a key to being prepared for graduation!
- One 3" covered ring binder, white, with transparent
coversheet sleeve on front and CD sleeve inside.
- One set/box of colored tabbed dividers
- One set/box of clear page coversheets
- College-ruled writing paper
- Two rewritable CDs
The tab dividers will help you quickly find your printouts of
maps, WOTs, legal docs, things to do on/off base etc...
Place a single sheet of writing paper at the front of the folder,
to be used as a master index, if no master index was included.
Place 10/20 sheets of paper in each section, to be used for notes or
The first CD can include the photos that you've sent and make it
special by sharing WHY you sent those photos and the special meaning
it has to you.
The second will be "Legal & Important Documents." Scan, and name
each document and save on the CD- put one in the CD sleeve, and give
the other to a trusted family member, friend or attorney for safe
keeping. These documents would be the Power of Attorney (POA),
Medical Power of Attorney (MPOA) or the legal document which he/she
has made for you.
For official/legal documents, each clear page-cover sheet should
enclose one (1) original document along with at least one photo copy
of the same (with "copy" printed in a clearly visible manner at the
top) - place the original and the copy back to back so that if all
the copies have been used, the "blank" original back will indicate
the need to make more copies.
In the corner of the sleeve, affix a colored tab to include the name
of the document, i.e. POA Document
