Happy Thursday!!! It&#39;s time for a throwback, DINFOS fam. This week, we dug through the archives. We had to dig deep for these, but we found a photo of ... well ... photos, actually &#129320;&#129320;, circa 1984. DINFOS was showing off how awesome it was then and we&#39;re still showing off how awesome we continue to be &#128522;&#128522; thanks to our wonderful DINFOS family. Have a great Thursday!

Well, DINFOSians, it seems we have a big weekend coming up. For some of us, we&#39;re off work (for some we&#39;re just off, period ...). Some of us will be standing watches or duty. Some will be having a BBQ. During it all, we ask that you take a moment to pay respect to those who didn&#39;t make it home. For this TBT, we&#39;re only going back a couple of years to AFN Aviano&#39;s take on what Memorial Day means to them. Tell us what Memorial Day means to you in the comments below. Be safe out there DINFOS family. <a href="https://www.facebook.com/AFNAviano/videos/1194416593932147/" target="_blank">https://www.facebook.com/AFNAviano/videos/1194416593932147/</a>

Friday&#39;s here. Friday&#39;s here ... &#129321;&#129321;&#129321;. So many cool things have been going on this week. Today, our Public Affairs Course for International Students ... well, students ... started their morning with Maj. Ebony Calhoun, a public affairs officer. They&#39;re talking about building relationships and how important it is to being effective communicators and public affairs officers. Awesome way to start the Friday. What advice do you have for your fellow PA/VI DINFOSian family?

We have an instructor who likes to say, "Every day is learning day." &#129300;&#129300;&#129300; Today is no exception. Shane Keller, one of our photography instructors, brought in something a little different for his students, and one of his teammates grabbed some photos.

Can you tell the caffeine has kicked in? We dug in our (electronic) vault to see what we have ... Who remembers this place? Share your throwback photos in the comments. Why?
