We have all heard the warnings:  “Don’t go to Mental Health unless you want to get kicked out,” “They take away your weapons,” “You will never fly again if you seek out Mental Health services,” and “They tell you, you can never drink again.”  So, what is the truth?  Do they really end our careers, take away our weapons, prevent us from being on flying status, or tell us we can never drink?  Do they have this power? Will Going to Mental Health End My Career?

Rank and Name: Senior Airman Darren Hopkins

Duty Title: 354th Maintenance Squadron Air Force Repair Enhancement Program technician 

Hometown: Washington D.C.

Why is serving in the Air Force important to you?

Serving in the Air Force is important to me because it not only allows me to serve my country, but also offers me many opportunities for personal and professional growth.  

What moment or accomplishment as a member of the Icemen Team are you most proud of and why?

The accomplishment I am most proud of is earning the 2M MTR (Navy Miniature/Microminature Electronic Repair and Module Test and Repair) certification as a Senior Airman and becoming the only AFREP technician on Eielson. I am proud of this accomplishment because it enables me to see an entirely new field of the maintenance world that I might not have been able to see otherwise.

What is your favorite part of your job?

The part of my job that I enjoy most is learning the ins and outs of various aircraft parts and equipment, in order to make repairs to them.

Who inspires you and why?

My parents inspire me. Both my mother and father support me no matter what the circumstances are and that gives me the strength and inspiration to continually challenge myself. 

What's your favorite part about being in Alaska?

The thing I enjoy most about being in Alaska is taking in all of the fantastic views and all of the fishing opportunities. Iceman in Action: SrA Darren Hopkins

NATO provides "eye in the sky" during RED FLAG NATO provides "eye in the sky" for RED FLAG
The air war is underway at Red Flag-Alaska 18-1. But fifty miles southwest and ten thousand feet above the dog fighting, a NATO E-3A Component jet circles in its flight pattern, soaking up signals and squawks about the fluid battle space below and providing friendly forces a watchful "eye in the sky" that extends in every direction for hundreds of miles.

Throughout the exercise both sides learned invaluable lessons from one another and built upon the existing relationship between the U.S. and Israel. Israel fueling the fight for RF-A 18-1
More than 5,000 miles from home, an Israeli Air Force B-707 waits high in the sky over Alaska. This location differs greatly from Israel, from the cold and snow to the huge swathes of uninterrupted wilderness, the two places couldn’t be more different. In spite of this, the real challenge for the Israeli B-707 was preparing for and accomplishing its mission to provide in-flight refueling to forces during RED FLAG-Alaska 18-1.
