There are more than 2,000 satellites in space. The Air Force tracks everyone of them with our Space Operations Center out at Vandenburg Air Force Base. But there's thousands and thousands of manmade space junk floating around that we have to track, that becomes a national security impact because we rely on satellites to detect threats to America." VanHerck said the Air Force currently has the brightest and most able airmen in its history, but he's noticed they have one serious shortcoming. "Really, our airmen are smart," he said.

"Absolutely the smartest we've ever seen. What our airmen all too often lack today is a toolkit for resilience. Resiliency means bouncing back from failure, being able to be constructively criticized and not have an emotional reaction to it and allow it to affect their leadership. "We need airmen who realize failure is part of growing as a leader. All too often we haven't allowed them to fail.

We tell them after the soccer game to the little guy who stood in the corner and played in the dust the whole game and runs back and asks, 'how did I we say, 'You did awesome' instead of, 'You did just as good as you prepared and that's not very VanHerck saved his greatest criticism for cuts in the nation's defense budget due to sequestration. Stating that he didn't want to get political, he said, "Both sides of the aisle need to get their act together. We need to decide as a nation what our priorities are."

Many of you in here, since you've been alive, the Soviet Union hasn't existed.

They don't exist today. We can say that Russia is the former Soviet Union, but not really. "Today we fight an ideology that knows no nation state. It doesn't wear a uniform and lives all over the planet, including caves in Afghanistan and other places. That's change, folks.

That's just in my career. I came in using typewriters and I'm not that old. "We used to worry about nation states, but now we worry about an individual who can take an iPhone to plant a virus that can take down the entire power grid of the East Coast. It's a challenge we have to be ready for. VanHerck said he didn't want to offend his "Navy brethren," but when told that the Earth is 70 percent covered by water, he tells them that 100 percent of the planet is covered by air and space.

"Travel in the air domain connects our global economy together," he said. "You know, $1.3 trillion of the U.S. economy and 10 million jobs are fostered by the air domain. Thirty-five percent of our global trade is fostered by the air domain. No surprises here to you.

This is a significant impact to our nation that we have to keep open and ready to go or else we have an economic impact which turns into a national security impact." VanHerck noted that the U.S. Air Force is "what drives space." "That cool little GPS you have in your car or on your iPhone thank the U.S. Air Force for that. That's what we do. That Global Positioning Satellite system that synchronizes time for all the ATMs in the world so you can go get that money out of that ATM.

Our banking industry. There's lots going on in space.

In just a few months, however, the brigadier general will be taking on a new duty assignment when he becomes director of operations for Air Force Global Strike Command at Barksdale Air Force Base, located just outside Bossier City, Louisiana. In addition to the new assignment VanHerck will be receiving promotion to the rank of major general.

At Friday's speaker forum, VanHerck used a multimedia presentation to explain the U.S. Air Force's changing role in a changing world. "Why do we have an Air Force?" he asked the crowd. "Really, it's about taking care of air, space and cyberspace domains. What is cyberspace? We're still trying to get our arms around what cyberspace is.

Our country is trying to figure out the laws of cyberspace the policies of cyberspace. "These three domains will no doubt be the three most contested domains as we go forward. As you look at technology changing, the countries out there emerging. Not only countries, but non-state actors emerging, like ISIS. I'd like to see people become more aware of things like this and how they impact us every day." VanHerck said the country needs to reimagine how it will fight against a new kind of enemy.

"The world is changing," he said. "When I came into the U.S. Air Force we had more than 600,000 people. When I started out I trained to fight the Soviet WASHINGTON COUNTY License office contract to chamber The management contract for the Potosi License Office has been awarded to the PotosiWashington County Chamber of Commerce by the Missouri Department of Revenue.

FRAUD FROM PAGE 1A end of our driveway with a beautiful red flag that we put up when we have something valuable going out," said Roberts. "Typically what is valued that we mail is a card or bill payment. We recommend paying bills online through a secured website, a secured website will have 'https' on the top by the web address.

If you do pay through the mail take extra precautions because when you put that red flag up, you are giving a criminal an opportunity where they don't even have to get out of their vehicle to steal your information." If criminals do get a bill with a check in it, they can duplicate that check with a computer program called 'Verse a They use a CD rom and check stock paper to put the stolen account and routing number on them. They will put a check number on them 50 higher and put themselves down as the payee and the victim down as the payer and they will take every nickel out of the victim's checking account until they start bouncing checks. "Another thing is credit card fraud and it's running rampant right now," said Roberts. "With a credit statement the thief will know what it is valued at and they can sell the credit card numbers on forums where they discuss different tactics. You have to watch for strange charges on your statements.

If you see a charge for a dollar and you know you didn't do it, report it. That's how they can tell if the card is still valid." Another way criminals can get There was a guy in his car sleeping with a tablet in his lap and he was getting the information from the skimmer as people used the ATM." In addition to ATM skimmers, they also use gas pump skimmers. The problem with those are that they can't be seen. They are attached inside the gas pump and no one is the wiser until it's too late. Internet fraud is another example and Roberts said that posting on social media that you are out of town or on vacation is another way criminals can commit fraud.

"They will send you a friend request and once they see that you are out of state, they will look at your friends list," said Roberts. "They will find an aunt or grandma, look up their phone number and call pretending to be you, telling them that they need money to get out of jail or worse." While they are conning a family member, they have already put a Craigslist ad out looking for someone who wants to work from home. The person hired will go to Western Union to pick up funds, keep a percentage of them and in turn wire the rest to another location. So not only is there one victim, there are two involved who are unaware they are being scammed. Roberts recommends that everyone be diligent when it comes to personal information and to always check credit reports for yourself and on your children for suspicious activity.

credit or debit card information is the use of skimmers. Just recently two skimmers were apprehended in St. Louis. They are plastic devices that fit over the front of an ATM and are attached by double-sided tape or epoxy. When someone slides their card in, the criminal gets a copy of the information off the card.

"It captures the card number and the pin number that is entered," said Roberts. "They are more common on a standalone ATM because they are not connected to the bank's surveillance.
