Defense Department and White House officials sharply
rebuked Russia for sending an alleged aid convoy into Eastern Ukraine
without obtaining clearance from Ukrainian authorities.
A Chinese fighter on
Aug. 19 conducted a “dangerous intercept” of a US Navy P-8 surveillance
aircraft flying a “routine mission” some 135 miles east of Hainan Island in
international airspace over the South China Sea, Pentagon spokesman Rear Adm.
John Kirby announced Aug. 22.
Airmen are not
usually associated with cattle drives, but to the delight of service
personnel, family members, and others, airmen from the 97th Air Mobility Wing
at Altus AFB, Okla., joined citizens from the surrounding communities in riding
horses to guide more than 20 longhorn cattle around the base on Aug. 21.
