MLK Observance Event

Peaceful, charismatic, and dedicated have become synonymous with the name Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.  He was a man of great importance to the advancement of African Americans during the Civil Rights Movement and thereafter.  His ideology was one that emphasized nonviolence and moral maturity in times when laws were set in place to deny reciprocity.  It is his dedication to spreading love in the midst of hate that we celebrate every January. The purpose of the Dr. King celebration is to highlight him in a way that causes reflection on what the individual can do to continue the struggle against the many injustices that plague today’s society. Through film and oration, we will explore the scope of Dr. King’s influence on not only the African American community, but on American culture as a whole. It is our honor to invite you to celebrate the life and legacy of Dr. King at this year’s festivities.

 

**West Gate Closure** Please Be Advised

The West Gate (aka Jones Gate) is closed to inbound/outbound vehicle traffic, and will remain closed to vehicle traffic until the Allentown Road paving project resumes in Spring 2017; however, the gate will remain open to pedestrian-only traffic from 0600-1800 Mon-Fri.

BACKGROUND:  Prior to April 2016, the West Gate was a pedestrian-only gate manned to allow bus riders access to the installation.  The West Gate is not designated as a primary vehicle access gate and was opened for vehicle traffic in April 2016 to alleviate traffic congestion near the Main Gate while the Allentown Road paving project was in progress.

**For Your Information: Conversion of IBM Lotus Forms to PDF** Please Be Advised

Effective March 2017, the Air Force is transitioning from IBM Lotus forms (.xfdl format) to Adobe Portable Document Format (.pdf). The conversion process of IBM Lotus Forms to the pdf format for documents stored in the Automated Records Management System and viewed through Personnel Records Display Application (PRDA) has been initiated and is currently underway. It is imperative that customers utilize the most current version of forms listed on Air Force e-Publishing.
