    Grilling is as American as hot dogs, baseball and apple pie. With warmer temperatures, the thought of “firing up the old grill” comes into mind. Before engaging in this pastime with family and friends, take a few moments to ensure your grill is safe to operate.
  • Motorists, walkers, runners and cyclists all must be alert on roadways to ensure everyone’s safety

    Motorists and pedestrians sharing the roadway can be inherently dangerous unless everyone stays alert. While pedestrians have the right of way, they must also follow the rules of the road.

  • Edwards Extremism Stand-Down Day

    As a child, I looked up to members of the US Air Force.  I was inspired by their amazing performance in Desert Storm, read stories of aerial valor in Vietnam and Korea, and knew the origin stories of the US Army Air Corp by heart.  In short, I wanted to be on a high performing team that was devoted to aerospace, united with each other, and selfless in commitment to American ideals.
