A proud moment in our history:
Good luck to all of the participants in the 2018 Air National Guard Ammo Rodeo hosted at Volk Field! The ANG Ammo Rodeo is an annual two week bomb building competition for ANG Ammo troops held at Volk Field Combat Readiness Training Center, Camp Douglas, Wis. The event concept was organically developed by Volk Field munitions personnel and fully support by National Guard Bureau. It brings together a total of 48 munitions troops from around the country; 3 cadre and 45 participants. This year's participants came from 20 Air National Guard units. During the first week of the event, participants learn several different disciplines of ammo in a classroom type setting. In the second week, teams of 15 compete against each other and are graded based on accuracy, duration and reliability of constructing munitions.
This week at Volk Field Air National Guard Base we recently provided support for a United States Air Force Special Air Mission. The USAF Special Air Mission provides air transportation for the President of the United States, Vice President of the United States, First Lady of the United States, Presidential Cabinet, U.S. Congressional delegations, and other high-ranking American and foreign dignitaries. Flying worldwide, Special Air Mission (SAM) aircraft represent the highest level of Distinguished Visitor travel and must meet stringent physical security, schedule and protocol requirements. Because these aircraft are the official transportation for leaders of the United States Government, they are a highly visible symbol of the United States of America. National pride dictates these aircraft portray the highest American standards. To continually host the SAM aircraft reflect the highest levels of confidence the United States Government have in the personnel of Volk Field ANGB.

Congratulations to Staff Sergeant Maurice Heckman 'Brutus' a Weapons Director assigned to the 128th Air Control Squadron on graduating the Advanced Weapons Director School (AWDS).
