  • Tears of Loss and Thanks Follow Vets on Honor Flight

    May 7, 2009

    The tears still flow easily when Judy Loncaric talks about her parents and their symbolic trip with the Honor Flight program on April 25. The trip was symbolic because both of Loncaric's parents have died, her father in 1984 and her mother this past August in St. Louis. They were represented on the trip to the World War II memorial in Washington, D.C., by their burial flags. Their flags were among 18 that were flown to the nation's capitol on F-16s and then presented during an Honor Flight ceremony at the memorial. The tears Loncaric sheds are both in sorrow and gratitude. She mourns the loss of her parents while, at the same time, she is thankful for the World War II veterans who still proudly stand firm for their country and for the many volunteers from north Alabama and the D.C. area who make the Honor Flight trips possible. "It was nice to finally recognize the veterans who sacrificed so much to preserve our freedom and the freedom of others around the world," said Loncaric, who participated in a ceremony April 24 in which the burial flags were presented to the F-16 fighter pilots and then again in an April 26 ceremony when the flags were returned to her.

  • Project Manager Learns Value of Hard Work from his Mom

    May 7, 2009

    One Huntsville Center project manager attributes his success to his mother's work ethic. Jeff Fagan is a project manager in the Installation Support and Programs Management Directorate's Facilities Repair and Renewal Division. Prior to coming to the Center, Fagan was a civilian architect at Mobile District. He also retired as a lieutenant colonel in the Air Force after serving more than 24 years. Fagan has a captivating and moving story. Not so much because his family has been the focus of numerous articles featured in Parenting, Ebony and Jet magazines, and receiving a spotlight in the Air Force's Airmen magazine or the Birmingham News. It is not because in 1997, the family was placed in the Guinness Book of World Records for having the most children to graduate college - 15 to be exact! The size of Fagan's family wasn't due to a blended family situation. Fagan said it was a true blessing to be the 10th of Dan and Helen Fagan's 16 children. The children, now ranging in age from 40 to 64, all grew up in a small four-bedroom house in Bessemer. Fagan said his mother has always been the driving force behind his determination to succeed. "My mom was always one of my biggest supporters. Through her strong support, the thought that a young black man growing up in a poor environment could not succeed never entered my mind," Fagan said. "The stereotypical opinion of many during that time would not be the life I was destined to live."

  • Soldier Mental Health a Priority at Fox

    May 6, 2009

    The health of the Army relies on the abilities of its war fighters. Soldiers who are sick, injured or incapacitated in any way cannot be at their best in executing the Army's mission to support and protect the cause of freedom and the interests of the United States around the world. A healthy Army means its war fighters are healthy in all ways - both physically and mentally. It's the mental health of the war fighter that is the central focus of Fox Army Health Center's Behavioral Medicine Division. And that focus is becoming broader and deeper as more Soldiers visit BMD to seek help for problems associated with deployments, working in a high-risk environment and dealing with the stresses that can come with wearing the uniform. "Our mission is to treat active duty. This is our foremost mission," said Karen Scott, a licensed professional counselor with BMD. "Because of deployments, we've really ramped up in the number of active duty patients that we see. For that reason, we don't have services for family members and retirees right now. We are focusing all our efforts on helping the active duty Soldier."
