Q: What brought you to this base:

Q: What is your job at the 301st Fighter Wing?
Arnold: As the 301st Director of Psychological Health (DPH), and a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, I am able to help support all Airmen, regardless of status (Active Duty, Reservists, ARTs, Civilians, and their family members), to find solutions to issues they may be facing.  Some common topics that I have helped others deal with are symptoms of depression, anxiety, and post-traumatic stress, suicidal ideations,  work/life balance, relationship difficulties, and deployment concerns (among many others!).  I keep no records and most topics are completely confidential.   All services are free of charge!

Arnold: I wanted to be able to make a difference. As a social worker, I have training to make change at multiple levels... individual and systemic change.

Q:  What is your favorite part of the job?

Q: How can someone get in contact with you?
Arnold: If you are having difficulties, or you are concerned about a Wingman or a family member, please don't hesitate to call.  I am on the base during the week and on UTA weekends.  I have an office located in the Medical Squadron building and can be reached by phone at (817) 782-3287 or e-mail at
