We love to share what our students do here and in the fleet and field. Today, let's check out this story from Air Force TV about a family tradition spanning 60 years. A little background, the KC-46 Pegasus, the United States Air Force's newest multirole tanker, successfully completed its final flight tests, July 6, 2018, and they dedicated this edition to the Airmen who keep those aircraft in the sky. Keep doing what you do, Air Force! #DINFOSandProud #DINFOSRocks

Happy Monday, DINFOSians!! Yes, it's Monday 😨😨😨. Yes, motivation can be hard, but the end results ... those are what we're working for, right? 🤨🤨 Some of our Basic Public Affairs Specialist Course students (with a little help from their instructors) made a video to share what they learned in their time at DINFOS. Check it out. Maybe it will help your Monday be a little better 😊😊😊 https://youtu.be/EBF5tab4myQ.

Friday is here!! This week has been fast, busy and fantastic. We took a throwback to the Navy photo-mate school, checked out what our radio students and instructors were up to (they looked like they were having ENTIRELY too much fun 🤣🤣🤣), and watched a heart-warming story about helping each other 😍😍. With such a strong week behind us, let's make the weekend another great part of our week. How? We'll start with a video, of course 😊😊😊. Check out this story about finding enjoyment in staying busy. #DINFOSandProud #DINFOSGrads #DINFOSRocks https://youtu.be/snaUWWlGXwk. Have a FANTASTIC weekend, DINFOS fam!!

Happy Thursday, DINFOS fam!! It's Thursday, and we have an awesome TBT from one of our own DINFOS department heads (😏😏 can you find him? We know who it is 🤣🤣). Do you have pics to share? DINFOS roots and history are awesome. We'd love for you to share your part of it with us! #DINFOSandProud #DINFOSRock #TBTDINFOS

Happy Tuesday, DINFOS fam &#128525;&#128525;!! It&#39;s a beautiful day outside ... and a bit hot, too &#128565;&#128565;, so let&#39;s take a few to watch a story from one of our students (he&#39;s graduated since this was made &#128522;&#128513;). Here&#39;s his story from some of the recovery efforts that were going on in Ellicott City, Maryland, while he was here.

Good afternoon and happy Monday, fellow DINFOSians!! Hope your day (and the start of your week) is going well. It has definitely been busy here. We have the students back in classrooms after a week-long exodus &#128513;&#128513;&#128513;, and we&#39;ve been welcoming new students all morning! We have students in the classrooms, students in the halls and our DINFOSian instructors in the forefront &#128522;&#128522;&#128522;. It&#39;s going to be a lovely week, DINFOS fam. Can&#39;t wait to see what tomorrow brings &#128525;&#128525;&#128525;!

The halls of DINFOS are quiet this week ... with the students being out and all ... and today we celebrate our Independence Day 🎉✨🎉. We're fortunate enough that the school house is a place where our staff, faculty and students can take the day to celebrate what America means to them, but many of our brothers and sisters at arms will "celebrate" by standing the watch and continuing the mission. Because, that's what we do. So, be safe, family. Happy Independence Day! #DINFOSandProud #DINFOSRocks

It's Tuesday, DINFOS fam!!! 🤣😁🤣 The school house may be quiet, but we're getting a lot done around here. We're updating computers, lesson plans and taking care of business (starts humming songs from 1970's 😅😅). Tomorrow, we will celebrate July 4th ... our Independence Day ... Are you looking forward to bbq's or maybe a road trip or some volunteer service? Not sure, but saw an awesome July 4th pic, graphic or video from our DINFOS fam and want to share it? Let us know in the comments below. Have a great one no matter what you're doing. #DINFOSandProud #DINFOSRocks

Friday is here, DINFOS fam! Hope you have a wonderful weekend planned &#127774;&#127774;&#127774;. DINFOS is headed into exodus time. What does that mean? "School&#39;s out for SUMMER!!!"&#129321;&#129321;&#129321;. ... Or, a week anyway. (WHATT??? DINFOS won&#39;t have students???) &#128558;&#128558;&#128558; For those of us still here, we&#39;ll be helping take care of any needed updates (cause &#128187;&#128187; are very needy &#129315;&#129315;) and catching up on the small things while the students enjoy some time away from the school. Before we head into the weekend (and exodus) though, it&#39;s time for our Friday video. Some of our Broadcast Communication Specialist students have decided that with the heat comes a need for some training ... about swimming. They want YOU safe when you go to the pool: https://youtu.be/D5B51ijfFfI. Enjoy your weekend, DINFOSians!

Today&#39;s TBT is a little different. At the school, we have several displays showcasing the history of our services and our job fields &#128253;️&#128247;&#128250;&#128221;. So, instead of one photo, we thought we&#39;d share some small snapshots of how the school showcases the growth (and the consistency) of what we do &#127897;️&#127909;&#128248;&#128212;✏️&#128187;. The gear may change but the fundamentals are what help DINFOSians of all generations connect. #DINFOSandProud #DINFOSRocks Have a wonderful Thursday, DINFOS fam! ✨✨

Happy Tuesday, DINFOS fam &#127774;&#127774;!! Hope the week is turning into a good one for you. It&#39;s a beautiful day, so let&#39;s celebrate with a video from a recent #DINFOSGrad. Our students come up with some awesome ideas for everything from story topics to training videos to spot ideas. In this spot, Airman Basic Hannah Strobel&#39;s shows us about "putting it to a vote." https://youtu.be/I9-gQ8cIp6Q

DINFOSians, we&#39;re almost at the end of another great week at DINFOS. As always, we&#39;re hoping your week has been as terrific. Why? Because you&#39;re part of the DINFOS fam, of course &#128522;&#128522;. In an effort to inject some extra funniness (and just plain fun) into your day, we&#39;ve gotten our hands on a video about "being a clown," or maybe not being a clown &#129300;&#129300;. Enjoy a laugh and stay awesome, DINFOS fam! https://youtu.be/bg9jau8vcQE

Tuesday is here! Woo hoo ... and we&#39;ve slept since yesterday. It seems the energy levels are back up. We&#39;ve all talked about how items, especially our gear, can "walk away" if it’s not properly taken care of, right? &#128530;&#128530;Well, it seems some of our students were able to capture the elusive "bearded thief" just in time to make one of their training videos for the Broadcast Communication Specialist course. Check out their tips for taking care of your gear. https://youtu.be/0u9DZTnJy8c

Happy Monday, DINFOSians! Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend and everyone's Monday is appropriately caffeinated 😁😁😁. Mondays seem to routinely be a rough day, but it doesn't have to be a Monday to be hard to get motivated. Whether it's finding stories or just getting your creativity moving, the start can seem to be ... well ... like moving through taffy. So, DINFOS fam 🤔🤔🤔, in an effort to motivate our students and each other, what are some ways you use to get that creativity flowing when you've hit a block? We're banking on chocolate, lots and lots of chocolate ... 😏😏😏

Thursday is coming to a close, and it&#39;s been a busy one. It started with a run and some PT (physical training) and moved on to a ceremony and cake cutting. It was AWESOME! Check out what we did today. "Over There!" Celebrating 243 years! Hooyah, Army!! https://spark.adobe.com/page/AeTtahzTS7ZD7/

We said there&#39;d be more ... and ... There&#39;s always cake &#128513;&#128513; ... We caught our own James Gilbert (our director of training) with guest speaker, Col. Herman (Jay) L. Johnson, Jr. and, Army Cpl. Ebony Banks, who stood in as our youngest Soldier. Hey ... it&#39;s been a FANTASTIC day to be at DINFOS. https://youtu.be/_btJRNyd3PI

Good morning, DINFOSians!!! Guess what day it is?? I&#39;ll give you a hint ... 243 ... And, the answer is: The Army&#39;s birthday &#127881;&#127881;. That&#39;s a lot of years to honor in celebration today &#128562;&#128562;&#128562;. What all comes with a birthday celebration? An early morning run, of course &#128513;&#128513;, and in true Army style, they brought out everyone, students, staff, faculty and our resident Non-commissioned Officer Academy family. *whispers* &#128527;&#128527; There are even a couple of Sailors and Airmen in there, too. The day isn&#39;t over yet, so we&#39;ll keep you posted on what else our Army family brings out. Congrats on 243 years &#127881;&#127881;. May you lead us into another 243 more. How are you celebrating 243 years of Army greatness?

Wednesday is here, DINFOSians!! We&#39;re halfway through the week &#129315;&#129315;. We got our hands (digitally) on some of our photographer students&#39; work (&#129300;&#129300; apostrophe placement is key for this ...) Is it one student or many students? Of course, it&#39;s many students &#128513;&#128513; and they&#39;re from the Basic Still Photography course. These images are from the first two parts of the course. We&#39;ll bring you more as the course continues. #DINFOSandProud #DINFOSRocks. See the individual photos at https://www.flickr.com/photos/dinfos_showcase/albums/72157694791423852

DINFOS fam, it has been a great Tuesday for us. Hopefully, it has been for you as well. We&#39;d like to finish it strong with another video. This time, we&#39;re recognizing our DINFOS Ft. Meade "brick owners." DINFOS opened its doors at Ft. George G. Meade, Maryland, June 12, 1998, so we wanted to take a few minutes and show you just a few of the faces that are helping keep DINFOS awesome. #DINFOSandProud #DINFOSRocks. #39;re #DINFOSandProud!
