21st Space Wing firefighters use a hydraulic rescue tool, also known as the “jaws of life,” to peel back the metal of a smashed car door so they could safely extract an injured driver. Firefighters and rescue workers were on the scene of a simulated drunk driving crash Nov. 10 on Peterson Air Force Base. The event, Every 15 Minutes, was hosted by U.S. Northern Command and included participation from the 21st Space Wing's firefighters, security forces and emergency medical teams. The anti-drug event is meant to leave a visual image that will deter Airmen from drinking and driving, event organizers said. (Air Force photo by Dennis Howk)

PETERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Colo. -- Col. Emily Buckman, 21st Space Wing Mission Support commander, meets retired Chief Master Sgt. Dorothy W. Holmes at the wing's Retiree Recognition Reception Nov. 3 on Peterson Air Force Base. Chief Holmes is the first woman chief master sergeant to retire from the U.S. Air Force with more than 30 years of service. She was not planning on making the Air Force a career, she said, when she joined in 1949. However, she loved her assignments and her work. She served in Europe, Puerto Rico, two tours in Asia and throughout the United States. Chief Holmes was assigned to the U.S. Air Force Academy in 1976 to usher in the first class of female cadets. She served as the woman senior NCO role model and later was presented with the Legion of Merit for her work there. Today, Chief Holmes volunteers at the 21st Space Wing Retiree Activities Office. The Retiree Recognition Reception is among several events this month to highlight the Year of the Air Force Family. Special events and activities for all of Air Force family members are planned for the next several months to highlight existing and new family programs.

Demolition crews take down a three-story dormitory Nov. 4, at the corner of Otis Street and Stewart Avenue on Peterson Air Force Base. The demolition is part of the Air Force "20/20 by 2020" program, which aims to reduce real property square footage by 20 percent and reduce building maintenance costs by 20 percent by the year 2020. The old dormitory has been vacant for several years because it did not meet current building standards. About 45 percent of the building materials will be recycled. (Air Force photo by Larry Hulst)
