Tech. Sgt. Josh Patten, an intelligence mission planner for the 124th Operational Support Squadron graduated from the USAF Warfare Center's Advanced Enlisted Mission Planning Course (AEMPC) with two of three top honors this weekend.

Idaho Air National Guard Director of Staff Lt. Col. Tim Donnellan and 124th Fighter Wing Command Chief Tammy Ladley will join other reserve-status leaders in 2015 by their selections to the Reserve Component National Security Course. RCNSC is a mini war college experience done just as professionally in a timeframe that works for our traditional force.
"It is one of the best strategic-level courses offered to guardsmen," said Col. Sherrie McCandless, Commander, 124th Fighter Wing. "The caliber of speakers is second to none."
From the 124th Fighter Wing Safety Staff:
Many of you will be hitting the road this weekend to travel home for Thanksgiving. Make sure you have a plan.
When are you leaving? What are the road conditions? When are you planning to arrive at your destination?

Ensure you let someone know the route you plan to take and when you plan to arrive. That cell phone in your hand just might not work, in the middle of a snow storm, for you to call the people waiting on the other end for you.
Make sure you pack an emergency kit in case you become stranded.
Wishing you a Happy Thanksgiving [and safe travels] from the 124 FW Safety Staff…Continue
