“Working in SCIFS isn’t always the most fun,” said 1st Sgt. Matthew Hernandez, of the 690th Intelligence Support Squadron. “Lack of phones and natural light can wear on people. Additionally, too much blue light--caused by fluorescent lights-- can affect a person’s natural rhythm.”
Hernandez led the initiative to install 30 Octo lights in his Squadron’s work space. He collaborated with his commander and the 688th Cyberspace Wing Religious Support Team in order to use quality of life funds to bring the lights to his Squadron.
