12/1/2011 - Via e-mail -- The 23rd Flying Training Squadron got the new 2012 calendars in today. For those who don't know, the 23rd FTS is the initial pipeline for all Air Force helicopter pilots flying the TH-1H. With that said, on the first page upon opening the calendar, it shows the different tracks from the T-6, then on to T-38s and T-1s. What about helos? Are we not one team one fight? I know for the month of June it has an HH-60G and the track on the side, but what about the front page? I understand we are a small facet of the Air Force, but helos are still in Air Education and Training Command and are a track as well. It would have been nice to see one of the most taxed assets on the front page along with the T-38s and T-1s. Just food for thought!

The helos are definitely an important part of the "fight club," which is why we emphasized the helicopter training track in the calendar during the months of June and September. But you're right. It would have been good to work a Huey into the inside front cover layout.

The 2012 Torch Calendars are great. Our Air Force guys (at Lockheed Martin Marietta) were very impressed with them, as was I.

At the San Juan Military Entrance Processing Station, Puerto Rico, we are the Air Force liaison office amongst civilians and members from all other services. The calendars -- and magazines -- are highly coveted by all, not only for the pictures but also for the monthly info. Our first shipment of calendars is already gone! Thank you for an excellent product; congratulations to all involved!

Wow! Today, I received 10 copies of the new 2012 Torch Calendar, and they all got snapped up before I could get out of the command section (North American Aerospace Defense Command headquarters). Great safety calendar!

The annual Torch Calendar is very popular in the 344th Training Squadron. We have close to 200 technical training students come through our squadron each month.

Thank you for a truly great calendar and magazine. It is a very popular calendar at the office (Air Force Personnel Center). The Julian dates and the legal holidays make them very useful in our daily work. The photos are also great to have hanging in the office and at home.
