~The FReeper Canteen Presents~

Road Trip: Ellsworth Air Force Base, South Dakota

Ellsworth Air Force Base is a United States Air Force base near Rapid City in Meade County and Pennington County, South Dakota, United States. It is home to the 28th Bomb Wing of the Air Combat Command (ACC), operating the B-1B Lancer.

As host wing, the 28th Bomb Wing includes an operations group, a maintenance group, a mission support group, and a medical group. The base controls all air space 40 miles (64 km) around its area, including all landings at nearby Rapid City Regional Airport, Rapid City, South Dakota.

The mission of the 28th Bomb Wing is to put bombs on target. Every Airman in this Wing, whether its maintaining its people, equipment, pulling a trigger or aiming crosshairs, puts bombs on target.

Ellsworth Air Force Base is home to the 28th Bomb Wing, which flies B-1B Lancers and serves as the host unit, providing all essential base operating support services for Ellsworth and combat support services for an Air Expeditionary Wing.

The wing consists of four groups: the 28th Operations Group, 28th Mission Support Group, 28th Maintenance Group and 28th Medical Group.

Air Combat Command is the primary force provider of combat airpower to America's warfighting commands. To support global implementation of national security strategy, ACC operates fighter, bomber, reconnaissance, battle-management and electronic-combat aircraft. It also provides command, control, communications and intelligence systems, and conducts global information operations.

As a force provider, ACC organizes, trains, equips and maintains combat-ready forces for rapid deployment and employment while ensuring strategic air defense forces are ready to meet the challenges of peacetime air sovereignty and wartime air defense.

ACC numbered air forces provide the air component to U.S. Central and Southern Commands with Headquarters ACC serving as the air component to U.S. Northern and Joint Forces Commands. ACC also augments forces to U.S. European, Pacific and Strategic Commands.

Not Abandoned

November 20, 2012

As Karissa Smith was browsing in a local library with her babbling 4-month-old daughter, an older man rudely told her to quiet her baby or he would. Smith responded, “I am very sorry for whatever in your life caused you to be so disturbed by a happy baby, but I will not tell my baby to shut up, and I will not let you do so either.” The man put his head down and apologized, and told her the story of how his son died of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome over 50 years ago. He had repressed his grief and anger all those years.

In Psalm 13, David expressed his grief. He addressed God with raw and honest language: “How long, O Lord? Will You forget me forever? How long will You hide Your face from me?” (v.1). These questions reflected fears of abandonment. David’s language of distress gave way to a plea for help and reaffirmation of his faith in God’s love for him (vv.3-6). Confidence and firm resolve came alongside the cry of distress.

We all go through dark nights of the soul when we wonder if God has abandoned us. As with David, our aching can give way to joy when we approach God honestly, plead for help, and reaffirm our trust in a God whose love for us will never waver or change.

Christ is the answer to heartache,
Christ is the answer to pain;
Though by all others forsaken,
He at your side will remain. —Elwell
God will never leave us nor forsake us.

Read: Psalm 13

How long, O Lord? Will You forget me forever? How long will You hide Your face from me? —Psalm 13:1
Bible in a Year:
Romans 5-8

Freeper friends can you please distribute to others that would be interested reading a good book about a tour in Iraq? This is written by a true hero and if you see some of the details you will agree. I served with the author in Soc Trang Republic of Vietnam he was a helicopter engine mechanic in 1967-1969. He returned to Iraq to serve a year tour 2004-2005 as he was approaching the age of 56 as a platoon sergeant of combat medics. This book deserves to have a wide distribution and the story is touching.

Below are 3 links at the bottom of the page to purchase a book I have just read that I highly recommend.

Biography:
About the Author
Jeff Dahlin was born in Chicago in 1948. His family moved to Tennessee in 1949 and then to Lisle Illinois, a suburb of Chicago in 1954. Dismissed from high school in 1963, the family moved to Oak Park Illinois, where he graduated high school in 1966.Dahlin joined the Army in 1967 and was sent to Vietnam in September 1967 serving until August 1969. He enrolled in college on the GI bill but left school a year and a half later to hitchhike across the United States, Canada, Mexico and Central America for six years. Working a variety of dead end jobs he settled in Polk County, Tennessee in 1977 and took up a career as a white water river guide.Dahlin joined the National Guard in 1990 and retired as a master sergeant in 2008. He is married and has a daughter in college.

About the book:
Jeff Dahlin wrote Iraq Chronicle while he served as a medical platoon sergeant with l battalion 278 Regimental Combat Team. Beginning with departing from Tennessee with the cheers from hundreds of roadside onlookers to arriving in the sweltering humidity of southern Mississippi for training, Dahlin introduces members of his platoon and as training continues, witnesses the transformation of weekend warriors to full time professional soldiers. Training cumulates at the national training center in southern California with a simulated attack on an Iraqi village followed up by a fruit loop race in a rain swollen ditch during a freak desert storm. Tensions within the platoon begin to arise when the regiment is shipped to Kuwait to prepare for a road march into Iraq. Long lines and a shortage of ammunition, sand storms and civilian contractors add to the stress. Scrap metal salvaged from a landfill to provide “Hillbilly Armor,” for the units vehicles was responsible for the Defense Secretary’s statement that, “You go to war with the Army you have not the Army you want.” Entering Iraq, Dahlin presents vivid first impressions of an alien land and culture. A “welcome to Iraq” roadside bomb hit his convoy only two miles from its destination FOB (forward operating base) Caldwell in Diyala Province. Recounting mounted and foot patrols from a medics point of view, he gives a unique prospective of infantry operations. A night ambush gone bad or Iraqi civilians pleading for medical attention; Dahlin’s account is funny, sad, intriguing and doggedly brings into focus the ongoing tragedy in Iraq.

25 years ago, I was driving through South Dakota, returning to California after visiting my brother at Minot AFB in North Dakota. Out of the corner of my eye out the drivers side window, I saw some movement. It was a B-1. He flew right over my car at about 200 feet. I tried to follow him visually out the passenger side window. He disappeared in seconds. You couldn’t see him. Amazing.

I live here.

“Great faces (Rushmore), great places.” (motto on our license plates.)

Very conservative area, beautiful too. Our weather is not nearly as bad as most think. 71 degrees tomorrow. Good shopping, great medical facilites, no state income tax, good airport, some very nice restaurants, low unemployment rate, low crime rate, lots of cultural events and big name concerts, wonderful friendly people.

But, don’t tell anyone. We’re trying to keep it a secret.

I spent six years at Elmendorf AFB. Loved it there, too.

Good evening, dduck....love those planes!!

I was there during the transition from B-52s to the B-1 before I retained into F-15, and later to Intel. Right know I enjoy seeing the F-35s, CV-22s and F-22s in the Florida Panhandle.

A little colder than Florida?

Just a little colder, Snowbird weather.

How are you today?

I didn’t mean to mislead anyone. My only service was as a daughter,granddaughter, great-grandaughter, wife and mother (ad infinitem) of all the men in my family who actually did serve. I spent many years waiting on news from afar and worry about those I loved......some who gave all. Dating way back to the Remolutionary War.

Thank you so much for your wonderful Canteen threads. I always read them. It is a great service and honor that you do.

BAND OF BROTHERS

WORLD WAR II


Members of the 101st Airborne, June 7, 1944 at Ste.Marie du Mont, France

"This day is call'd the feast of Crispian.
He that outlives this day, and comes safe home,
Will stand a tip-toe when this day is named,
And rouse him at the name of Crispian.
He that shall live this day, and see old age,
Will yearly on the vigil feast his neighbours,
And say, "To-morrow is Saint Crispian."
Then will he strip his sleeve and show his scars,
And say, "These wounds I had on Crispin's day."

KOREA

Members of the "Chosin Few", 1st Marine Division, December 1950


"Old men forget; yet all shall be forgot,
But he'll remember with advantages
What feats he did that day. Then shall our names,
Familiar in his mouth as household words,
Harry the King, Bedford, and Exeter,
Warwick and Talbot, Salisbury and Gloucester,
Be in their flowing cups freshly rememb'red.
This story shall the good man teach his son;
And Crispin Crispian shall ne'er go by,
From this day to the ending of the world,
But we in it shall be remembered."

VIETNAM

FMF Corpsman D. R. Howe treats the wounds of Pfc. D. A. Crum, "H" Company, 2nd Battalion, Fifth Marine Regiment, during Operation Hue City.


"We few, we happy few, we band of brothers;
For he to-day that sheds his blood with me
Shall be my brother; be he ne'er so vile,
This day shall gentle his condition:
And gentlemen in England now a-bed
Shall think themselves accursed they were not here,
And hold their manhoods cheap whiles any speaks
That fought with us upon Saint Crispin's day."

AFGHANISTAN

Soldiers of the 101st Airborne Division in action, Afghanistan, 2011


"Once more unto the breach, dear friends, once more,
Or close the wall up with our English dead.
In peace there's nothing so becomes a man
As modest stillness and humility;
But when the blast of war blows in our ears,
Then imitate the action of the tiger;
Stiffen the sinews, summon up the blood,
Disguise fair nature with hard-favour'd rage;
Then lend the eye a terrible aspect;
Let it pry through the portage of the head
Like the brass cannon; let the brow o'erwhelm it
As fearfully as does a galled rock
O'erhang and jutty his confounded base,
Swill'd with the wild and wasteful ocean."

(Henry V, Act IV, Scene iii)


THE STRUGGLE AGAINST TYRANNY GOES ON,
AS IT HAS FROM TIMES IMMEMORIAL.
THE BAND OF BROTHERS STILL STANDS FAST IN THE BREACH!

They have our six!

Honor them for their Service and Sacrifice!

Are you ready for the Tuesday

Road Trip?

Good morning, Everyone.

Good morning to our

military, our allies, and their families

Thank you, Lauren, for preparing the Canteen for today’s activities.
South Dakota, huh?
I'm guessing they will be wearing shorts up there today.
Personally, I'm not complaining about the mild temps so far.

DC Metroland Weather

~ Today...Mainly cloudy. High around 55F. Winds light and variable.

~ Tonight...Some clouds. Low 38F. Winds light and variable.

Well, things are kind of quiet around here,
so I might be able to get to the Canteen more today.
Assuming that the dreaded "time out" doesn't keep happening to me.


Please stay.

Grab a cup of joe or tasty tea.

The FR Canteen is ALWAYS

Come on in and sit for a while.
There's always plenty of coffee, tea,
pancakes,
conversation,
silliness,
and plain old BS

REMEMBER THEM ~ DEFENDERS OF FREEDOM


FR CANTEEN MISSION STATEMENT

Showing support and boosting the morale of our military and our allied military and the family members of the above Honoring those who have served before.
