Congratulations to Capt Ryan Comes of the 92 MDG on being awarded the Bronze Star Medal for his efforts while deployed at Bagram AB!!!

(message from Lt Col Bill Chalmers)
History happened today!!!! General Miller, RS/CC, presented the Bagram AB Lab with 4 Bronze Star Medals. Capt Ryan Comes TSgt Igor Dufrene SSgt Christina Slaton and SrA Gabrielle Heal (I’m going out on a limb and calling her the first 4T Amn (little A) to receive such accolades). This is an amazing feat they earned through their hard work and dedication to Bagram, TF Med A, Op RS, and CENTCOM through trauma support, extending in place, COVID ops, and standing up testing COVID testing in theatre to allow the operational forces to continue in spite of the pandemic. I am unbelievably proud to have met these guys and seen them in action. More proud to serve with each and everyone of them. Please tag those I couldn’t! Blow these 4 up, they are truly rockstars.

It’s #tbt time and my hats off to the men and women of the 92nd Medical Group at Fairchild. Around 2 years ago I went out there as MHS GENESIS was first field tested. It wasn’t pretty, lots of issues but this team of medics were persistent in making this product work. They incorporated over 14k individual line item changes in the program and even unlocked some functions that the GENESIS creators were not aware of. This team is rewriting history by creating the MHS electronic health record, their hard work and efforts are paying off. Proud to be part of their team!!! If you know these superstars tell’em thanks!

Airmen should continue to stay active to maintain their physical and mental well-being during the pandemic. Exercise is an effective, low cost way to enhance one’s mood and reduce feelings of stress and anxiety. Use these tips for getting daily exercise:

➢ Make a schedule: Build exercise into your daily schedule. Include family members and make it fun

➢ Incorporate simple activities: Go for a walk, run, or bike ride, while practicing safe physical distancing, rather than a structured workout

➢ Try virtual workouts: Try out mobile apps and videos for virtual workout classes or sessions

➢ Adapt workout routines: Be creative by incorporating new workout routines or exercises using body weight, household items, and new practices. Examples may include:
o Use body weight to perform strength exercises like planks, squats, lunges, and push-ups
o Improve both cardio and strength through high-intensity interval training
o Improve balance, flexibility, and relaxation through yoga

Do not exercise if you have a fever, cough and difficulty breathing. Stay home and rest, seek medical attention and call in advance. Follow the directions of your local health authority.

If you are able to go for a walk or bicycle ride always practice physical distancing and wash your hands with water and soap before you leave, when you get to where you are going, and as soon as you get home. If water and soap are not immediately available, use alcohol-based hand rub.

If you go to a park or public open space to walk, run or exercise always practice physical distancing and wash your hands with water and soap, before you leave, when you get to where you are going, and as soon as you get home. If water and soap are not immediately available, use alcohol-based hand rub. Follow the directions of your local health authority in regards to any restrictions on the number of people with you and/or restrictions on the use of public outdoor play or exercise equipment.

If you are not regularly active start slowly and with low intensity activities, like walking and low impact exercises. Start with shorter amounts, like 5-10 minutes, and gradually build up to 30 minutes or more continuously over a few weeks. It is better and safer to be active for short periods more frequently than to try and be active for long periods when you are not used to it.
