The SAPR Team will be hosting a Painting with a Teal Twist on Friday, April 23 at 10 a.m., in the SAPR Office.

Please come and join us for a little relaxation and fun. If you are not an artist or not sure what to paint? No worries! We will have our teal ribbon with B-52 outline sketched and ready for you. If you are “Bob Ross” and want to paint your own masterpiece we will gladly give you a blank canvas and let you enjoy!

April 23 is Resilience Day with a focus on the social pillar, I cannot think of a better way to socialize and get to know the Airmen of Striker Nation than coming over to the SAPR office and being Pablo Picasso for the day.

    Assistance is needed. I am volunteering with RVs 4 MDs Fighting Coronavirus. Louisiana especially Shreveport/Bossier is in need of Loaner RVs. If you could let local MDs borrow your RV, it would be much appreciated. This is an attempt to keep the Frontline personnel isolated to prevent them from spreading it to their family.

    When HPCON-C is implemented later today, what impacts, closures, etc. can we expect to encounter?
    When HPCON-C is implemented later today, what base actions can we expect to see? What impacts to anticipate?
    So have the rules changed again to get into bx, shoppette, commissary, are you now required to show ACTIVE DUTY I.D CARD? Be in uniform? if your a retiree working in a essential job on base show that i.d along with your retiree i.d ? I thought security forces were doing that at the gates for allowing only people " official business only" so now why the i.ds at all the open services? Is this correct?
    Are there currently any fed ex restrictions to get on base?
    Why the CDC still open?
    There was an announcement this morning over the PA system. I am at Fam Camp and could not understand it. Can anyone tell me what it was? Just trying to see if it was related to COVID-19. Thank you
