688th Cyberspace Wing opens The Oasis Room in support of Airmen resilience

Members of the 688th Cyberspace Wing came together to celebrate the opening of their new resiliency room with a ribbon-cutting ceremony performed by Col. Steven Anderson, 688th CW commander, at Joint Base San Antonio-Lackland Oct. 13.

The resiliency room, formally named The Oasis Room, was envisioned first by the Airmen, executed by the chaplain, and supported by wing leadership is stocked with seating, books, a massage chair, a television, games and free resources for the wing's Airmen.

“The goal was to create a place where all Airmen can retreat and refresh,” said Capt. Amy O’Connell, 688th Cyberspace Wing chaplain.  “The room offers everyone a chance to step back and take a break, even if only for a couple minutes.“

The goal of The Oasis Room aligns with the 688th Cyberspace Wing line of effort to develop resilient Airmen and the Air Force Chaplain Corps’ vision; to care for Airmen more than anyone thinks possible.

The 688th Cyberspace Wing, headquartered at Joint Base San Antonio-Lackland, Texas, is aligned under Sixteenth Air Force (Air Forces Cyber), Air Combat Command. The wing is the Air Force's premier cyberspace warfighting organization dedicated to delivering actionable intelligence and tactics, techniques, and procedures, deployable warfighter communications, engineering and installation capabilities, defensive cyber operations, and network security operations across the Air Force Information Network enterprise.
