The Labor Day holiday weekend is here.

Because the weather will soon start to change, everyone wants to make the most of this long weekend; the last summer "bash." But you don't want it to end tragically. The National Safety Council has found that, for this weekend, traffic fatality estimates increase this weekend more than other holiday weekends. Don't become a statistic! The Air Force wants all Airmen, their families, friends and co-workers to return home Safe 'n Sound.

This is the time to review all previous 13 weeks of Tinker Take Off articles of the 101 Critical Days of Summer. Each article offered valuable information for activities everyone enjoys over the Labor Day weekend. The estimates from AAA are that 33 million travelers will take trips of at least 50 miles away from home during this holiday.
