The F-15E Strike Eagle squadrons assigned to the 4th Fighter Wing generate more than 14,000 sorties every year. With that many jets flying every day, many people may wonder how Team Seymour provides such a unique capability as often as it does.

Default Air Force Logo Volunteer app simplifies tracking hours
A new webApp resource, created by the 31st Force Support Squadron at Aviano Air Base, Italy, is available with capabilities to track hours for both on and off base volunteer activities. Visit www.myairforcevolunteer.com to register as an individual user or organization. It’s also possible to create a shortcut on the home screen of internet capable phones. The site features instructional videos for users with questions about the functionality of the App. Members currently using the PVSA web site to track hours, can continue to do so without using the App if they prefer. Children as young as 5-years-old can register to track hours toward a volunteer award. The site will track users’ progress toward a President’s Volunteer Service Award, which is awarded during Volunteer Recognition Ceremony facilitated by the 4th Force Support Squadron Airman & Family Readiness Center every April.

Default Air Force Logo Air Force Blood Drive takes off again
Seymour Johnson Air Force Base in Goldsboro, North Carolina, has been holding blood drives with the Naval Hospital Camp Lejeune Blood Donor Center since February 2013. With multiple blood drive coordinators over the years, the blood drives have continually grown. This trend has remained the same as a new coordinator, Airman Anthony Federico, conducts his first blood drive with the Armed Services Blood Program. “This was my first blood drive with the ASBP,” Federico said. “It’s a good feeling knowing you coordinated a blood drive that has such a huge impact with the armed forces. Being able to donate is an even greater feeling because that blood someday in the near/far future will have the potential to save a life.” These blood drives produce on average about 35-40 units collected per drive and are still growing. Federico’s drive was a huge success with 54 people registered and 47 units of blood collected. Since a single donation has the potential to save up to three lives, that means that 140 potential lives could be saved.
