Heads up 916th.
916th ARW members battle the sweltering heat to launch a critical AF asset.
S.T.A.R.B.A.S.E. summer camp started today and you know what that means... a group of around 60 bright young campers are poised and ready to overrun the base. We enjoy these opportunities that allow us to critically influence the kids that attend the camp with our incredible technology and stellar Airmen. Be sure to check out the Seymour Johnson AFB page for more on their camp activities. #TeamSeymour #AFReserve #ReserveCitizenAirmen #AFRC #916ARW #NKAWTG
At the 916th, safety is a top priority. Our wing safety team is active throughought the squadrons ensuring safe practices and conditions for all of our Airmen. Today, they led an all-day effort to reinforce standards and promote the processes and resources that enable us to continually operate safely. #TeamSeymour #AFReserve #ReserveCitizenAirmen #AFRC #916ARW #NKAWTG
Our local community provides a great support system for us. Whether it be through leadership support or the heartfelt gratitude of individual members they have always contributed to our sucesses. We are constantly searching for ways to match their efforts. Today we had the chance to share our wing with a very enthuastic member of the local community and his family. We had a blast Tommy, and we hope you did too! #TeamSeymour #AFReserve #ReserveCitizenAirmen #AFRC #916ARW #NKAWTG
Today we hosted an Individual Ready Reserve (IRR) Muster on behalf of the Air Reserve Personnel Center (ARPC). Members in the IRR status had the opportunity to come in, be evaluated and push to meet readiness standards. These readiness events are available at a number of locations as to accommodate the different places reservist serve from. The AF reserves provides great diversity and flexibility in the form of many different career paths and statuses. Interested parties should contact the Air Force Reserve Recruiter for Eastern North Carolina or Air Reserve Personnel Center (ARPC) for more details. #916ARW #TeamSeymour #ARPC #AFReserve
We want to thank Col Chris Sage, our Base Commander, and Jessica Sage who both provided so much for the members and spouses of 916 ARW. An awesome day for an awesome fini flight. Good luck and God’s speed to the Sages. #FiniFlight #TeamSeymour #4FW #916ARW

Last week, we sent troops overseas to assist in the global peace effort. We want to say thank you the 445th Airlift Wing of Wright Patterson AFB, Ohio for the safe transport. Our Airmen are constantly deployed to the most hazardous regions of the world to advance global stability and our commander believes that these outstanding efforts warrant an equally outstanding sendoff!
