On Aug 4, AFPAA will send AFSOC/PA shops links to videos from Airmen who fall under this command for proper vetting AND to select a MAJCOM-level winning video.

On Aug 11, MAJCOMs will notify the AF Social Media team of winning entry and disqualified videos.

On Aug 12, finalists will be announced who will compete in a public contest. Finalists will be notified by email from usafvideo@us.af.mil. Finalist videos will be uploaded to the Air Force BlueTube channel on YouTube. Video "Likes" will be recorded until 12 pm(CST) on Aug 22.

Hurlburt Field - Whether stationed here at Hurlburt Field or abroad, service members can expect to find the same, or very similar, prices at Army & Air Force Exchange Service facilities worldwide.

Known as pricing parity, this practice ensures Exchange prices are established centrally.

"While there may be some slight price differentiations that occur with items purchased locally overseas, per Department of Defense policy the Exchange doesn't increase prices in order to cover shipping or other higher operational costs," said Eglin/Hurlburt Exchange General Manager Myra Florence. "No matter where they are called to serve, it is our goal to bring Airmen and their families the same products, at the same cost."

Despite the Exchange's efforts to price consistently, a few exceptions can occur.

"There may be some price differences between locations in the continental United States and overseas for categories such as gasoline, alcohol and tobacco," said Florence. "These prices are set based on Department of Energy benchmarks, or local surveys, established by DoD directives."

Additionally, prices for some convenience and frequently purchased items may be lower at different locations based on local promotions or surveys. To ensure prices on these same items overseas are consistent with those service members would expect to see at home, overseas prices are set at the average surveyed CONUS price.

Airmen and their families worldwide can learn more about Exchange policies by visiting http://www.shopmyexchange.com/CustomerService/.

The Department of Defense is launching the 2014 DOD MWR Customer Satisfaction Survey. This study measures customer satisfaction with MWR activities including fitness, libraries, outdoor recreation, recreation centers, auto service centers, single service member programs, leisure travel, swimming pools, sports and athletics.

It is imperative Air Force members be well represented in the survey results. Feedback received will be used for strategic planning purposes to help modify or improve existing MWR programs and services.

Randomly-chosen Air Force members will receive an e-mail invitation with a link to the survey.

AF members are strongly encouraged to participate if they receive an invitation.
