Happy 72nd birthday to our @usairforce! We're proud to have @EdwardsAFB in the Antelope Valley (lovingly called "Aerospace Valley"), and we were fortunate to welcome Brigadier General John Teichert from Edwards celebrate with us.

.@lapublichealth's Manage Pain Safely campaign illuminates the grave reality that prescription opioids can be highly addictive and lead to dependency or death. Opioid misuse can affect anyone. Visit https://t.co/pzYm9P2sHy to learn more.

Nobody puts these babies in a corner! Today's pets are named Patrick and Swayze—and you'll be dancin' over to your local @LACoAnimalCare center to give them a loving home. Together, you'll have the time of your life!

.@ChapCareOrg does incredible work for the wellness of our Los Angeles County communities. It was a treat to stop by their Swing Fore Health event to thank them for their tee-rrific service!

We are less than a week away until we welcome the Prime Minister of Armenia to Los Angeles County! Avoid the hassle of parking Downtown and opt to take one of the complimentary buses to and from the event on Sept. 22.
