VOTE FOR SKYELAR! This lovely big-eyed girl is a 3-year-old German Shepard and the wonderful family pet of 1st Lt. Benito Avendano, 482nd FSS. Skyelar loves to ride in the car and clean up around the house (well, she likes to eat the food dropped on the floor by the family's 1-year-old baby). But be careful Skyelar, not all people food is good for you! #dogsofsummer #HomesteadHound #Dogdaysofsummer
The Air National Guard Band of the South gave a two hour performance tonight at the Seminole Theatre in Homestead. The mission of the Air National Guard Band of the South is to support military and civilian functions; to perform at activities involving Department of Defense community relations projects.
Great news! Wings Over Homestead Air and Space Show is back at Homestead November 3-4! See the fabulous Air Force Thunderbirds, the Army Golden Knights, and many more awesome aerial acts for FREE. We will also have vintage static aircraft displays, food and music. New this year: STEM activities for students and an interactive guidebook on the www.guidebook.com app (just look for the "Wings Over Homestead" guidebook). #Wingsoverhomestead #TGIF #STEM #Thunderbirds #GoldenKnights
VOTE FOR CHEWY! This handsome young guy is Chewy. Just look at that nice haircut! He is very loyal to his family, and likes Crossfit. 🏋🏻‍♂️ He is the loyal pet of Tech. Sgt. Chase Provencher, 482nd Maintenance Sq. ******************************* 🐕Speaking of well-groomed pups, remember: If your pet has a thick coat, consider a haircut! One inch is a good length to avoid sunburn and also keep your pet cool. Stay safe during the #DogDaysofSummer!!! #HomesteadHound #NationalDogDay #rescuedogsrock #DogsofSummer
The sound of freedom! Happy Independence Day from all of us with the loud jets!!! #murica #yourewelcome 😄🇺🇸🎉🎆✈️

Meet Senior Airman Christopher Castillo. He’s a rising star in the electrical shop here at Homestead Air Reserve Base, and his leadership has noticed. Simply put, his team takes care of the electrical systems that keep our F-16 jets flying. He does a great job, and he loves the military because of the culture and camaraderie. “It’s like coming to work with your family,” said Castillo, and it’s this love of family that gives him the drive to be the best. Despite humble beginnings, Castillo made a success of himself through the Air Force. “I actually came from a really poor family, and although I can’t fix what I came from, I figured I can fix what I’m going to.” Keep up the great work, Senior Airman Castillo! #makomonday
