Please join us in a virtual “clap-out” for Col William “Spaz” Culver, our awesome Air Force Safety Center Vice Commander. Today we salute him as he transitions to retirement—successfully completing a career spanning over 24 years as a fighter pilot, chief of safety, commander, Air Force leader, and wingman. More importantly, today marks the end of a superb two years and four months with us as our Vice Commander. Daily he exemplified what it means to be a leader who cares about and cares for Airmen. Physically, he’ll depart our ranks but he’s left our formations prepared for years to come by deliberately developing numerous teammates. He demanded and delivered excellence at every step! Thanks for your outstanding service and best wishes in your future endeavors!

Be safe and have a plan as you commemorate this Memorial Day weekend! Motor vehicle accidents are a leading cause of off-duty injuries and fatalities in the Air Force. The CDC attributes one death every 50 minutes in the U.S. to alcohol-#ImpairedDriving. Don’t become a statistic! #AFSafety

You might be eager to commemorate Memorial Day, but be sure to have a plan to avoid #ImpairedDriving: www.nsc.org/impaired. Anything that impairs your ability to drive – alcohol or drugs – puts innocent people at risk and can wreck lives.
