Not only were our Airmen able to participate in a flag unfurling, pay respect to Medal of Honor recipients and watch the NASCAR race – but they were also able to enjoy a performance by the Air Force's premier rock band, Max Impact! Check out some of the ways Max Impact boosted the morale and American spirit of our Airmen and other race fans at Daytona International Speedway this past weekend!
Good Morning, Sharks! Check out some of the great things our Airmen in the 45th Comptroller Squadron are accomplishing!
Check out more about the flag unfurling at the Daytona Coke Zero 400 by Airmen from the 45th Space Wing and fellow service members!
Our beaches attract visitors every year, and the plastic, aluminum, glass, and other items left behind can harm the environment, especially the 4,500 turtle nests. The debris creates unnecessary hazards on their way into the ocean. Since 2008, over 151 tons of debris have been collected in local beach clean-up efforts. Beach safety and cleanliness is an everyday priority for us. How do you take part in preserving our beaches?
On this day seven years ago, at this exact time, the last space shuttle mission was launched from the Space Coast! Four astronauts were aboard the Atlantis STS-135 as it traveled to the International Space Station – the only time a crew less than seven people ever made the trek. Though the Human Spaceflight program has been resting since the crew's return on July 21, 2011 – stay tuned to see what our great mission partners have planned in regards to sending Americans into space once more! Where were you when the Atlantis launched?
Among our Airmen — there are Soldiers, Sailors, Marines and Coastguardsman preparing to take to the infield for a flag unfurl at 7 p.m. on NBC during Daytona’s Coke Zero Sugar 400. Will you be watching?
60 years ago today, Launch Complex 15 was accepted by the Air Force. It was originally built for conducting test flights of the Titan I, and later, the Titan II. The last launch occured in 1964, and then the complex was then demolished in 2011. Launch complexes may be deactivated or demolished but the pivotal role they played in our space advancement cannot be denied.
Keep an eye out for our Airmen at the Coke Zero Sugar 400 NASCAR race tomorrow! The Airmen will be unfurling a flag on the field during the National Anthem prior to race start at 7 p.m., and it will be televised on NBC.
July 1 through July 7 is nationally recognized as Clean Beaches Week. The week is used to celebrate the beaches and to ensure they stay clean, safe and beautiful for future generations and the wildlife they harbor. This week enjoy your local Space Coast beaches, keep an eye out for any debris and educate other on the importance of keeping our beaches clean.
#ThrowbackThursday to earlier this year, when Brig. Gen. Wayne Monteith, and Command Chief Kimberly Vinson helped the 45th Civil Engineer Squadron demolish an old relay station on base.
Meet one of our newest Military Working Dogs, Miki! Miki, along with his other K-9 companions and the 45th Security Forces Squadron, helps keep the 45th Space Wing safe on a daily basis!
Have a fun and safe holiday from all of us at the 45th Space Wing!
Happy Independence Day! Had the honor of re-enlisting MSgt (sel) Kevin Green this morning before he and his family depart the Sharks in a few months. I can think of nothing I’d rather be doing today than playing a very small role in ensuring our United States Air Force is in great hands in the future. Shark 1
This evening Team Patrick-Cape had the opportunity to attend the USSSA Pride Military Appreciation Softball Game at the Space Coast Stadium in Viera, Florida. Although we are honored to represent the armed forces, both past and present, nothing compares to how fortunate we are to have the tremendous support of not only our community but also from the people of United States of America!
July 4th is a day that established the birth of American life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness -- protecting these values daily are servicemen and women across the globe. Thank you for every sacrifice you have made for our Nation. Also, remember as you safely enjoy fireworks tomorrow night, fireworks on Patrick AFB and its beaches are strictly prohibited.
Tuesday, July 3, the East Gate will close at 10 p.m. for the upcoming Independence Day holiday and will resume regularly scheduled hours, Friday, July 6. The South Gate will remain open with 24-hour access through the holiday. Additionally, the Commercial/Oversized Vehicle Gate will close at 5 p.m., Tuesday July 3, and will resume regularly scheduled hours, Friday, July 6.
