C2C Supports First Virtual K.U.D.O.S. Event

For the first time in the 12 year history of the Air Force Event titled K.U.D.O.S., “Kids Understanding Deployment Operations,” was presented online via the web. #KUDOS simulates deployment readiness in all facets of the call to action as the LAAFB Airman and Family Readiness Center shines by supporting youth and military personnel with their military orders.

During its first virtual event kick off, Active Duty Air Force Airmen and their dependent children ages toddler to teenager experienced a mock series of readiness exercises in real time by participating in geared up #KUDOS TEAMS answering calls to action in Mental, Physical, Social and Spiritual fitness categories.

This year, everyone participated with their own online connections via the internet and participated in live interactive Drills led by leaders of each Air Force department that their parents visit to be cleared to deploy and defend Our Nation in real life.

The awesome dress rehearsal includes tactical, hand-to-hand combat defense training, and meals ready to eat MRE’s while breeding camaraderie and confidence in each child and parent.

The readiness mission is filed with the importance of taking care of the active personnel Including coping and strategic training to best handle the emotions that Military families endure while being willing to Go, Fight, and Win in the blink of an eye.

Let us appreciate the deployment process and magnitude of what impact orders to deploy entail with separation from their children at hand at a moments notice.

The youth are excited about #KUDOS from their parents every year especially as the teams competed last year before social distancing was in effect at a giant tug-of-war and jumper obstacle course Including sponsored breakfast by C2C and a family BBQ Luncheon by the A&FRC which encouraged and introduced the measure of resilience, and ethical standards of The USAF Families first commitment.

It is always key to hope and pray for the safe return of our Airmen and Joint Forces to their homes stateside to become a family again after their deployments.

We want to humbly thank our Men and Women for their sacrifice, service-before-self and positive attitudes all around the world as they are serving in their Camies 2 Civies.

Silva, United States Marine Corps Veteran, Founder of Camies 2 Civies (C2C) Foundation, Executive Producer, and Host of Educating Our Veterans Live, The Christina Silva Show is committed to serving families and her own sons, military dependents forever.

Art heals us from C2C

The very first time I painted for a cause!!! Get involved to salute military organizations and learn to express yourself and commune with others with your mobile device and paint brush in hand.

The afternoon spent discovering the simplicity and complexity of art with acrylic paint gave me new interest during quarantine! I believe this #CREATIVERESILIENCYSOLUTION introduced to me virtually by the awesome team at the Los Angeles AFB Airman & Family Readiness Center saves lives.

For me, Art Uncorked program led by EFMP Director, Leah Long-Goss meant remembrance of the 22 lives lost daily isn’t in vain. Our comrades who fly free above the pine trees and for the glory of the American Flag are saluted in my work! They fought and gave their lives for such valor and honor to be valued forevermore.

It is a wonderful community partnership experience being a part of the Exceptional Family Member team during the first Virtual excursion via Zoom.

You’ll come to know your artistic talent exists and the relief therein once you join with others to create a story on canvas. Every painting is different and the process was so meditative, interactive, and stress relieving at once.

I brushed away pain and brought in hope as I painted today with those I trust can understand service and the finished canvas now hangs in my home office space for a lasting piece and hand-painted tribute.

Special thanks to LAAFB EFMP Director, Leah Goss and for making this event possible.
