The 644th Combat Communications Squadron helped improve the way children will learn this year by setting up a computer lab at Andersen Elementary School here Sept 9.

Volunteers from the 644 CBCS visited the elementary school to setup a new computer lab for students. Along with a new lab setup, Smart Boards were also installed. The Smart Board is an interactive whiteboard that uses touch detection for user input.

"The school needed some help putting together the lab, so I thought why not put our skills to use and help out the community," said Tech. Sgt. Patrick Garrett, 644 CBCS Cyber Surety Supervisor.

This was the third time this year they have lent a helping hand to Andersen AFB schools. More than 15 Airman worked together and setup 51 workstations. Combined, $100,000 worth of equipment was installed throughout classrooms at the school.

"This was a great way to bond and give back to our community," said Senior Master Sgt. Dawn Muskett, 644 CBCS Network Operations Flight Superintendent. "These Airmen worked hard and quickly to get this task done and it's all for the future education of these children."

Over the years the Air Force has heavily supported the "Air Force Family" ethos. It is good to see that there are Airmen continuing to embrace this moral element. While posturing for tomorrows fight, Airmen are still pushing to improve quality of life.
