101st Sustainment Brigade - LifelinersFort Campbell KY, 101st Airborne DivisionBagram Airfield, Afghanistan – The Convoy Staging Yard at Bagram Airfield is considered a “home away from home” for many of the host nation truckers who convene there.

On any given day, the drivers converge there after completing a long haul through the dusty terrain. Once they arrive, they can line up outside a conex filled with Meals-Ready-to-Eat or Halal meals and grab a packet or two for chow. They can spend anywhere from two to three days on the road just to get to Bagram Airfield, and then spend an additional several days waiting there for their next mission.

Spc. Shaun Donahue of the 584th Maintenance Company, 142nd Combat Sustainment Support Battalion, 101st Sustainment Brigade, provides an Afghan driver with bottled water and a Halal meal. The drivers will soon have a place to get cooked food and to pray and wash themselves at the soon-to-be constructed Life Support Center. (Photo by Sgt. 1st Class Peter Mayes)

You meet the nicest people on a morning walk

 

Coy Lacy Park is a great place for a morning walk, and my friend Alicia and I walk there often. The paved walking track is about a quarter of a mile around, and for those of us who sometimes have our minds on other things, counting each time you past a post at the entrance makes keeping up with your walking distances easy.

I’ve been told that you shouldn’t walk so fast that you lose breath and can’t talk, but I don’t think there’s any danger of me walking that fast.  It’s such a nice morning stroll and each morning there’s something new to see. Sometimes it’s George and Jennie Craig, native Clarksvillians, just striding along –sometimes you can even see them holding hands.  George says they walk “’most every day”.

Most fireworks injuries occurred to consumers younger than 20 and resulted in the loss of a limb in many cases.

In a press event held on The National Mall, Chairman Inez Tenenbaum announced that during the 30 days surrounding last year’s Independence Day holiday, there were nearly 6,000 reports of injuries involving fireworks.

New APSU Class Informs Students About Different Health Care Fields

 

Austin Peay State UniversityClarksville, TN – Every fall, dozens of incoming college freshmen go off to school harboring dreams of becoming medical doctors.

“We see it all the time,” Rex Ameigh, chair of the Austin Peay State University Allied Health Sciences Department, said. “Students come in here with the idea that they’re going to be a doctor.
