Thanks to all of our POCs who help make That Guy a worldwide success. With news year's resolutions now top of mind, we are spotlighting two standout events that show That Guy in action! Promoting true full-body fitness, two running events recently featured That Guy to help keep young servicemen on course.
Julie Howard, Semper Fit Health Promotion at MCAS Miramar hosted a "Don't be That Guy" 5K run before the holiday season.
With support from 39th Air Base Wing Commander Col. Eric Beene, Incirlik Air Base (Adana, Turkey) kicked off That Guy support this past October with a community placed banner hanging over their monthly Wing Run. Throughout 2011, That Guy public service announcements will be broadcast on the radio and Incirlik AB's American Forces Network, coasters and posters will be displayed at the consolidated club and clubs off base, and That Guy materials will be distributed.
Beene was recently quoted in a U.S. Airforce website article saying, "This campaign is not about telling Airmen not to drink; it's about encouraging Airmen to make responsible choices and to have a plan in place if they choose to drink.
