WASHINGTON (AFNS) --
Secretary of the Air Force Deborah Lee James, Air Force
Chief of Staff Gen. Dave Goldfein, and Chief Master Sgt. of the Air

Force’s 69th birthday:

To the Airmen of the United States Air Force:

On the 69th birthday of our United States Air Force, we salute you - the
dedicated Airmen providing unrivaled Airpower for America - as we
celebrate the establishment of the United States Air Force as a separate

continued innovation and leadership in the air, space, and cyber
domains.

Today, our Air Force delivers Global Vigilance, Global
Reach, and Global Power with unmatched effectiveness. With tens of
thousands of Airmen supporting combatant commanders from deployed
locations and many more directly contributing from their home stations,
the United States Air Force is absolutely essential to prevailing in
every joint fight.

America depends on our remarkable Total Force
of Active Duty, Guard, Reserve, and Civilian Airmen who have never
failed to answer our Nation’s call. We thank you and your family for
your service, sacrifice, and commitment to the defense of our Nation.
Happy 69th birthday United States Air Force!

Throwback Thursday - Gene Wilder & Gilda Radner - Shared by Palm Springs Guru

Remembering two great comedians and wonderful people. The original article is posted on the blog at http://gildasclubdesertcities.org/
The following statement was published by The Cancer Support Community regarding the death of Gene Wilder.

It is with great sadness that we learned today of the passing of Gene Wilder, the iconic actor, screenwriter, author and advocate.An honorary board member of the Cancer Support Community, Gene was instrumental in the 1991 founding of Gilda’s Club, named in honor of his late wife, comedienne Gilda Radner. During her battle with ovarian cancer, Gilda was a member of The Wellness Community in Santa Monica, California and wrote about her experience in her book, It’s Always Something.

In 2009, The Wellness Community and Gilda’s Club Worldwide joined forces to become the Cancer Support Community, with more than 46 affiliates around the world. Both Gilda’s Club and the Cancer Support Community locations offer an array of professionally led social and emotional support programs for people with cancer and their families.

“Gene was a great friend and supporter to Gilda’s Club. His support was monumental during the founding of Gilda’s Club, and he remained a strong advocate for the vital programs and shared mission of our two legacy organizations,” said Joanna Bull, Founder of Gilda’s Club Worldwide. “Gene had promised Gilda that no one should face cancer alone, a vow that moved Gilda’s Club forward as he served as its celebrity spokesperson.

That promise was held over many years and supported in every way by his widow, Karen. The Cancer Support Community and Gilda’s Club are grateful, and we are diminished by the ending of Gene’s wonderful life.”

Our thoughts are with the family and friends of Gene Wilder during this difficult time.

Palm Springs Guru, along with fans in Palm Springs, the entire Coachella Valley, all across the United States of America and around the world, remembers Gene Wilder and Gilda Radner.

It is important to look at http://gildasclubdesertcities.org/  Please do it now.

Thank you to the Cancer Support Community; your work honors the memory of Gene and Gilda.
