Project Officer Training

The 90 MW Protocol office will be conducting a Project Officer training course.

The course will be held at the civilian personnel office Feb. 26 at 1 p.m. We will also have another course specifically for Change of Command (CoC) Project officers.

Tax Related Legal Assistance

The legal office is extending its legal assistance hours on Wednesdays and Fridays  to assist with tax-related legal issues. This is NOT a tax preparation service, however, staff will be ready and available to provide tax-related legal advice. Legal assistance must be given in-person, therefore we will be unable to conduct virtual assistance.  If you are experiencing any COVID-19-related symptoms up to 24 hours before your intended visit we ask that you come another time. We remind all patrons that the 100% mask-wear policy is in effect when in the legal office.  Since tax issues can be unique and complicated, please call the legal office in advance so they can be prepared to address your issue when you come in. The legal office is located on the second floor of building 232, which also houses the 90th MSG. Legal assistance hours until April 15th will be: Mondays 2 – 3 p.m. and Wednesdays and Fridays 10 – 11 a.m. (general legal assistance) & 11 a.m. – noon Tax-related legal assistance only.  Please contact the legal office at 307-773-2256.

Wild Animal Issue on FEW

Recently, a raccoon on base tested positive for distemper and a second raccoon is likely to test positive for distemper. Also, there is a coyote on base that may have distemper symptoms as well. Lastly, there was a black-tailed jack rabbit that tested positive for Rabbit Hemorrhagic Disease Virus 2, a lethal rabbit disease spreading across the U.S. If anyone on base finds dead rabbits, the Wyoming Game & Fish Department would like people to let them know where the rabbit is, so that they can collect and test it. The rabbit disease is highly contagious to rabbits, but they are the only animals known to be affected by the disease at this time. 

Diversity and Inclusion Committee

The Diversity and Inclusion Committee  is looking to establish a committee to help us propel us in 2021 and make it a successful year. If you are interested, please contact TSgt Ashley Ishmon or SrA Devonte Brown.

DBIDS Credential Issue Change

Beginning Jan. 20, 2021, all DBIDS credentials (Cards and Passes) will be issued at the Visitor Control Center located outside gate 1. The Visitor Control Center is open Monday – Friday from 7 a.m.  to 4 p.m. with the exception of holidays and AFGSC Family Days. Visitors requiring a pass arriving outside these days and times will need to go with their sponsor to Gate 2 located off of Missile Drive. Memorandums for DBIDS cards, entry authority lists and pre-notes will continue to be processed by the pass and identification section. For any questions please contact Mr. Gilbert Chavez at 307-773-3110.

Chapel Leadership Resources

The chapel team now provides leaders with a resource to strengthen their teams and airmen.  The resource is called “Rising Above and Overcoming the Toxic Workplace.”  It can be found in three folders at the following link  https://cs2.eis.af.mil/sites/10728/wingagencies/hc/Overcoming%20Toxic%20Leadership/Forms/AllItems.aspx.

Good Order & Discipline

Pages of Leadership

Airmen can’t rely on formalized training to sculpt their leadership style or capabilities. When personal development doesn’t come with a deadline, it can get put on the backburner until those skills are critical to our success in that moment. Leadership is a people skill, making it incredibly challenging to improve on your own. Pages of Leadership is a social book club for Airmen of all ranks: officer, enlisted and civilian. Read or listen to the book on your own time, then meet face-to-face (or over Zoom) with peers to discuss the book and do an activity that will help Airmen implement the book’s key points in your own work center. In this month’s book, Jennifer Brown will help us harness the power of diversity with her book Inclusion: Diversity, the New Workplace & the Will to Change. No matter what your role—a team member, a mid-level manager, superintendent, or someone just getting started professionally—you have the power to drive change and influence organizations. Filled with historical data, compelling stories, and practical actions, Inclusion will help us set an environment where our colleagues feel welcomed, valued, respected, and heard. The face-to-face meeting will be held March 17 from 5 – 6 p.m. in the ALS side of building 834. If you plan to attend or you would like the Zoom link, please send TSgt Justin Schuetz an email at justin.schuetz@us.af.mil.

TRICARE Open Enrollment Season

TRICARE Select Group A Changes

Effective Jan. 1, 2021, TRICARE Select Group A retired beneficiaries will be required to pay TRICARE Select enrollment fees. This must be done via allotment, where feasible. In order to maintain health care coverage, TRICARE Select Group A retired beneficiaries must take action and pay their TRICARE Select enrollment fees. Beneficiaries should take action now and contact their regional contractor to set up an allotment for enrollment fees. If the beneficiary contacts their regional contractor after Nov. 20, 2020, the contractor may request two months advance enrollment fees upfront to establish monthly allotment. Beneficiaries who don't set up their TRICARE Select enrollment fee payment by Dec. 31, 2020 will be disenrolled from TRICARE Select due to non-payment. Beneficiaries will have 180 days from their termination date to request reinstatement. They must contact their regional contractor to request reinstatement. Beneficiaries will have to pay all enrollment fees back to Jan. 1, 2021. If they don't take action, beneficiaries will only be able to get care from a military hospital or clinic if space is available (i.e. all civilian healthcare costs will be their full responsibility).
