87th Air Base Wing leadership walk into history for professional development
Eleven senior leaders with the 87th Air Base Wing at Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst, tour Fort Mott State Park in Pennsville, New Jersey Oct. 4, 2019. The visit to the 19th century defense fortification was coordinated by the wing’s historian, James Warrick. Warrick said the tour provided the leaders with a military-heritage themed professional development opportunity. Construction on Fort Mott, then known as the Battery at Finn’s Point, began in 1872. Original plans called for eleven gun emplacements for twenty cannons and a mortar battery with six emplacements. Fort Mott would help protect industrial centers further up the river as part of a three-fort coastal defense system. Troops were regularly stationed at the fort from 1897 to 1922. A caretaking detachment served at the fort from 1922 to 1943. In 1947, New Jersey acquired Fort Mott as a historic site and state park, which opened to the public in 1951.

Love Shouldn’t Hurt
Volunteers use makeup to emulate a black eye as part of a Family Advocacy Program initiative called “The Black Eye Project” on Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst, New Jersey, Oct. 9, 2019. The volunteers went about their normal routines around base with a fake black eye as an experiment to see who would inquire about the individuals’ wellbeing and who avoided it. The goal is to help the community learn how to speak out and recognize symptoms of domestic violence which is severely under-reported, according to Family Advocacy. Within five hours, 50 people approached the volunteers— five were outside of their workplace. While many asked with concern, some initially approached with inappropriate jokes or comments. Two volunteers entered the installation through three separate gates and were not questioned. “We hope to use this as a learning experience for people to start a conversation,” said Christina Hernandez, 87th Family Advocacy Program domestic abuse victim advocate. “Be aware, ask the question even if it’s uncomfortable. Family violence thrives in silence and isolation and it’s the job of all of us to shine a light and show survivors that they are not alone.” (U.S. Air Force photos by Airman 1st Class Ariel Owings)
Oct. 11, 2019 - Domestic violence is a serious public health issue affecting individuals and families throughout the United States.
