WOT 4 Countering/Fight/Pics
Countering the Threat - Ready to Fight - Pictures
Video for this week is here...
Air Force Sexual Assault Prevention and Response Program Promote a safe, respectful, and productive work environment free from sexual innuendo, harassment, and assault is the responsibility of every Airman. The Air Force's mission depends on Airmen having complete trust and confidence in one another. Air Force core values of Integrity First, Service Before Self and Excellence In All We Do, define the standard. Sexual assault is absolutely inconsistent and incompatible with our core values, our mission, and our heritage. As such, the Sexual Assault Prevention and Response program is a priority both for ensuring readiness and taking care of our Airmen.
Are your phones ready?
If all goes well your phone should be ringing. The call can come ANYTIME before lights out (9 PM CST). Have your list of questions with you at all times. The call may be longer, not as quick as the first one and they may be more relaxed. They'll also be excited to share everything that is going on and you may then forget to ask those questions.
Keep it Hopeful, Inspirational and Supportive!
Anything worth doing is, is worth doing well. It takes times to get the photos shipped out to you, but the time is so well worth the wait.
Family Portraits can be taken on Friday following graduation between 11 - 12:30. More information to be announced at the briefings.
Contact info for BVP - 210-272-0293 Mon-Wed central. If you forget to order something, don't worry. You can order up to 5 years after graduation.
As listed on their website: "Visual Touch is an official photography company for BMT Graduation at Lackland AFB. We have the BMT parade and oath photos, parade flight groups (including Band & Flag flights) as well as the Airman's run and Coin Ceremony. We invite all graduating Airman & their families to our studio ON BASE to preview and customize their Official Portrait and Family Photos.

Since we know you can't wait that long, if you contact BVP ( 210.272.0293) or BMT store (http://www.basictrainingstore.com) on line you can order buttons of your AB in their blues. You will not get a preview, but it is exciting to have! What's great is that you can order your buttons as early as WOT 1. You'll need to provide AB Last, First MI and TRS/FLT.

Open your heart: Does your AB's Wingman need anything such as letters, tapping out, or adoption?
Each trainee will fill out a Hometown News release, that information will be put in a data base that Newspapers and radio stations who subscribe can get the information and publish it. The site isn't open to public. Some papers do it and some don't. Here is an example I found of what they look like:
