Meet Inga. She’s an active duty Marine Corps spouse and mother of three. She also used to be a pilot for Canadair! “Before marrying my Marine, I had a career which I loved but gladly stepped away from to allow our family to thrive,” she told us. Inga is ready to return to the skies, and we were happy to help her get there as part of our #militaryspouse scholarship program!

“The scholarship I received from NMFA allowed me to get back in the cockpit and begin the process of returning to the airlines,” Inga said. “With the pandemic and current state of the industry, it has become much more difficult, but I am still moving forward to set myself up for success when things turn around.”

We're excited for you, Inga!

From the Home of the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff

"What matters is that under these colors of red, white, and blue, under the stars and stripes, we are all Americans. That is the organizing concept, the core principle of the idea that is America, codified in our Constitution that we are all sworn to protect and defend against all enemies foreign and domestic, that we will never turn our back on that Constitution no matter what the price."

Hear more of the Chairman's message he shared during the recent United States Air Force Chief of Staff transition ceremony and thanks to all our service members who've sworn an oath to serve and protect us and the country we love.

To you eagerly I surrender this sad and gloomy life; And were it brighter, fresher, more florid, Even then I’d give it to you, for your sake alone. Paragraph 2 In fields of battle, deliriously fighting, Others give you their lives, without doubt, without regret; The place matters not: where there’s cypress, laurel or lily, On a plank or open field, in combat or cruel martyrdom, It’s all the same if the HOME or COUNTRY asks. Paragraph 3 I die when I see the sky has unfurled its colors And at last after a cloak of darkness announces the day; If you need scarlet to tint your dawn, Shed my blood, pour it as the moment comes, And may it be gilded by a reflection of the heaven’s newly-born light. Paragraph 4 My dreams, when scarcely an adolescent, My dreams, when a young man already full of life, Were to see you one day, JEWEL of the Sea of the Orient, Dry those eyes of black, that forehead high, Without frown, without wrinkles, without stains of shame. Paragraph 5 My lifelong dream, my deep burning desire, This soul that will soon depart cries out: Salud! To your health! Oh how beautiful to fall to give you flight, To die to give you life, to die under your sky, And in your enchanted land eternally sleep. Paragraph 6 If upon my grave one day you see appear, Amidst the dense grass, a simple humble flower, Place it near your lips and my soul you’ll kiss, And on my brow may I feel, under the cold tomb, The gentle blow of your tenderness, the warmth of your breath. Paragraph 7 Let the moon see me in a soft and tranquil light, Let the dawn send its fleeting radiance, Let the wind moan with its low murmur, And should a bird descend and rest on my cross, Let it sing its canticle of peace. Paragraph 8 Let the burning sun evaporate the rains, And with my clamor behind, towards the sky may they turn pure; Let a friend mourn my early demise, And in the serene afternoons, when someone prays for me, O COUNTRY, Pray to God also for my rest! Paragraph 9 Pray for all the unfortunate ones who died, For all who suffered torments unequaled, For our poor mothers who in their grief and bitterness cry, For orphans and widows, for prisoners in torture, And PRAY for yourself PRAY that your final redemption you’ll see. Paragraph 10 And when the cemetery is enveloped in dark night, And there, alone, only those who have gone remain in vigil, Disturb not their rest, nor the mystery, And should you hear chords from a zither or psaltery, It is I, beloved COUNTRY, Singing to you. Paragraph 11 And when my grave, then by all forgotten, has not a cross nor stone to mark its place, Let men plow and with a spade scatter it, And before my ashes return to nothing, May they be the dust that carpets your fields. Paragraph 12 Then nothing matters, cast me in oblivion. Your atmosphere, your space and valleys I’ll cross. I will be a vibrant and clear note to your ears, Aroma, light, colors, murmur, moan, and song, Constantly repeating the essence of my faith. Paragraph 13 My idolized COUNTRY, sorrow of my sorrows, Beloved Filipinas, hear my last good-bye. There I leave you all, my parents, my loves. I’ll go where there are no slaves, hangmen nor oppressors, Where faith doesn’t kill, where the One who Reigns is GOD. Paragraph 14 Goodbye, dear parents, brother and sisters, fragments of my soul, Childhood friends in the home now lost, Give thanks that I rest from this wearisome day; Goodbye, sweet foreigner, my friend, my joy; Farewell, loved ones, to die is to rest.
