Air Force EPME students sent home from government shutdown

MCGHEE TYSON AIR NATIONAL GUARD BASE, Tenn. – The I.G. Brown Training and Education Center announces Oct. 4, 2013 that its enlisted professional military education students would return to their duty stations during the Oct. 1 government shutdown. The announcement cut the training here of 300 students from the U.S. Air Force Noncommissioned Officer Academy (NCOA) – 233 students – and Airman Leadership School (ALS) – 57 students. The government shutdown most of its business but it continued to fund the Defense Department and other government agencies responsible for national security. But Defense leadership said that the shutdown effected its missions across the world. (U.S. Air National Guard photo by Master Sgt. Mike R. Smith/Not Released)

Hello. I am a prior U.S. Navy sailor and photojournalist serving on active duty with the National Guard – combined, for more than 24 years. This blog features my more memorable stories and photos from that news pile as well as creative writing. All images and stories are by me unless otherwise credited. I hope to backlog more as well as write new stories. Thank you so much.
