Happy Birthday, C-130J!
This February marks 20 years since the C-130J entered the United States Air Force and began service to our nation. As the latest iteration of the mighty Herk, with a history of 65 years providing combat airlift to joint warfighters, the J-model heralded a transformation in the way we deliver beans, bullets, and troops on time, on target. While technological advances permitted reduction of the crew complement from five to three aviators, the tactical airlift mindset long admired by our allies and feared by our adversaries remains unchanged. We remain a world-renowned team of adaptable, forward-looking, problem solvers who fully integrate into global operations. With more than 300 C-130Js delivered over the past 20 years to our Air Force, sister services, and partner nations, the ethos of Herk Nation spans the globe and gets its start right here at Little Rock Air Force Base.
C-130J: The workhorse of air mobility
The C-130A entered service in 1956. Over the next four decades, the C-130 Hercules earned a reputation as the nation’s airlift workhorse. As such, the ‘Herk’ was never mistaken as a thoroughbred built for speed, nor a one-trick pony built to be great at a single mission. For 43 years, the Hercules conducted every mission imaginable for a cargo plane: airdrops, night vision operations, close-air support, air refueling, terrain following low-level, drop BLU-82 bombs, and many other missions. The C-130 proved itself as a warhorse during combat in Asia, the Middle East and Africa.

As parents, introducing concepts like this may sometimes be difficult. The Little Rock Air Force Base Dental Clinic will be visiting the two child development centers and Lighthouse Charter School on base during the month of February.

My Look Back at Women’s Equality in the USAF During My Military Career, 1972-1997
During my years as an active duty member, from the early 1970s to the late 1990s, the role of women in the Air Force continued to evolve and grow. Significant changes in federal law and military policy that occurred during my active duty career improved the ability of women in the Air Force to contribute more fully to accomplishing the Service’s
Commentary: flight commander course reflection
I feel privileged I was given the opportunity to participate in the flight leadership course and network with other flight leaders at Little Rock AFB. The four-day course was structured to give flight leaders a glimpse of the resources the Air Force and Team Little Rock has for our Airmen and their families, and also to help us individually develop
Civilians’ wellness in health-conscious military
As a civilian employee working on Little Rock Air Force Base, I’m surrounded by health-conscious Airmen who exercise at least three times a week. Unlike me, they don’t seem to struggle with eating right and drinking water instead of doughnuts and gallons of sugary soda. I’m probably 40 pounds overweight. I huff and puff when I walk up the stairs, and don’t sleep well for most of the week. After receiving two emails about the Civilian Health Promotion Services Wellness Outreach, I signed up for The Importance of Sleep, Building a Healthy Core, and Physical Health Triangle, to get tips on living a healthier life and to see what CHPS had to offer during this annual event.
