The Belleville Gate is closed in both directions as the final phase of the gate construction project begins. During this phase, we're temporarily opening the Patriots Landing Gate from 5:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. in both directions and also temporarily opening the Old Mascoutah Gate off Illinois Route 161 from 6 a.m. to 8 a.m. for inbound traffic and 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. for outbound traffic.
Senior Airman Michael Crowe
375th Communications Squadron
is this week's 375th Air Mobility Wing "Showcase on ICE." Crowe created an innovative way to load Operating Systems across the network for customer computer systems. This prevents customers from having to take their computer to the Communications Squadron to get it updated. Currently, the Communications Squadron work center can only build eight systems at a time. With this addition, technicians can now reload systems from any location on base, reducing the number of systems that have to be brought back to the work center by 75 percent and reducing customer turnaround time from 72 hours to 24 hours. The goal of this project is to make it so the Communications Squadron can re-image computer systems faster without any user interaction.
