Master Sgt. James Lambrecht of the 124th Security Forces Squadron is running this year’s Race to Robie Creek for a noble purpose. On Saturday, he and his wife will make their third consecutive start. This year he is going to carry a military ruck and complete America’s “toughest half marathon” with 35 extra pounds on his back. He is dedicating his effort this year to the Wounded Warrior Project. “My goal is to raise awareness and collect as many donations I can for this outstanding organization,” said Lambrecht.
“All proceeds that are collected will be donated to the nonprofit organization Wounded Warrior Project (WWP), and will support a full range of programs and services for this generation of injured veterans and their families. The race is scheduled for the 19 Apr 2014, at high noon in…Continue

Every three years the pilots from the 190th Fighter Squadron are required to participate in combat survival training. This training is essential for keeping them proficient and combat ready. The Aircrew Flight Equipment specialists provided the training with help from the Intel shop and the Student Flight. Without this joint effort the training would not have been as valuable or beneficial to all those involved. One team, one…Continue
From the Desk of Chief Master Sgt Lyons:
We have an excellent career growth opportunity for one officer (Lieutenant Colonel or senior Major) and one enlisted member (Master Sergeant or Senior Master Sergeant) to participate in the State Force Development Statutory Tour Program.
The program goal is to have 54 Statutory Tour positions filled with candidates identified by the states for force development. A developmental assignment will afford members opportunities to gain staff experience at the MAJCOM, HAF, or Combatant Command level. There is no guarantee for award of joint credit or location of assignment. The state will determine the tour length of between one and two years as well as the start and end dates.
Each position is a one year tour (with an option for a second year depending on state and/or ANGRC leadership needs) at the Air National Guard Readiness Center at Joint Base Andrews. They are PCS authorized and…
As we enter April we observe the 10th annual Sexual Assault Awareness Month. This year's theme is "Live Our Values: Step Up to Stop Sexual Assault". Each and every one of us play a vital role in creating a culture that protects our values and reinforces the virtues of dignity, respect and trust for all. As a military, but especially as members of the 124th Fighter Wing, we do not tolerate, condone nor ignore any sexual assault, sexual harassment, or inappropriate behavior in our midst. We are a family. As a family we would not dare let such a negative behavior go unchecked - it is detrimental to our readiness as a wing.
Please take time this month to reflect on how we can do more to protect our family. As your commander I ask that you be a steadfast participant in creating a culture that reinforces our elite standards of behavior - First Class or Not at All!
The 124Th Maintenance Group had far from a perfect year in 2013. However, it was their resilient nature and positive response to the many setbacks that garnered them the coveted Idaho Governor’s Outstanding Unit Award for the year.
As with other areas, they were subjected to the effects of sequestration and the subsequent loss of over 19,000 hours of manpower in both February and October. The quest for savings also added a number of budgetary constraints to the MX Group as it did others. These affects were compounded by the increased modernization efforts of a highly capable yet aging aircraft. During some periods, the unit possessed eleven aircraft on station, much lower than their assigned number of twenty one used to execute nearly four thousand flying hours.
While the hurdles for the year were quite formidable, the number of successes the MX Group accomplished speaks loudly to the culture and character of our aircraft maintainers and those that…Continue
