  • AFDW Airmen observe Women’s Equality Day

    Air Force District of Washington and other Joint Base Andrews organizations will join the country August 26, to celebrate Women’s Equality Day. This date in August was set aside by Congress in 1971 to commemorate the certification of the 19th Amendment. Ratified in 1920, the 19th Amendment prohibits the states and the federal government from denying the right to vote to U.S. citizens on the basis of sex. This historic milestone marked a significant victory for the suffrage movement in America and it represents progress for women seeking equal rights and treatment in all facets of American society.
  • Making Dr. Airman

    Across the National Capital Region, Capital Medics of the 11th Medical Group deliver 42 world-class healthcare specialties to hundreds of thousands of beneficiaries. To be proficient in their jobs, all of the Airmen undergo some kind of rigorous formal education and training that enable them to be Excellent In All They Do. For some new Air Force doctors, this means stepping out of the classroom and into an operational medical clinic as a resident family medicine physician. Dr. (Maj.) William Bynum, 11th Medical Group, is one of the attending faculty members assigned to the National Capital Consortium Family Medicine Residency Program at Fort Belvoir Community Hospital, Va., where today’s clinical residents are formed into tomorrow’s officer leaders and expert family medicine providers.
