Airman Block: #myafoffice

We asked and you answered. Earlier this month, we launched our Instagram account, @airmanmagazine, and invited all of you to share your Air Force stories with us. We want our Instagram account to be a community forum where we share pictures from around the Air Force. This will also serve as a bridge to the magazine and give you the opportunity to have your work featured in Airman.

Each month, we will provide users with a photo assignment by picking an Air Force theme and providing a hashtag. All you have to do is submit a photo for a chance to have it featured in our magazine, the official magazine of the United States Air Force.

The first theme: My Air Force Office (#myafoffice). We know that Airmen have interesting jobs in various locations around the world. This assignment was a chance to show off your “office.” Thank you to everyone who participated. Let’s really make this magazine yours!

Airman Photo Editor’s Note: “This photo embodies what #myAFoffice theme is all about; Airmen working in different environments.”

TI’s hat

Airman Photo Editor’s Note: “The TI’s hat with Airmen running around in the background pretty much sums up basic training… A simple photo with a message.”

Airman Photo Editor’s Note: “Working in an office that deals with connecting families with deployed Airmen is all about the technology, the coffee speaks to the time differences.”

Airman Photo Editor’s Note: “I’ve always loved the in-flight selfies. This one works well because it not only includes the photographer, but also the flight of planes in the left side of the frame.”
