Airmen and their families hit the road every summer to travel and enjoy a little relaxation. When making travel arrangements that involve driving long distances, be sure to get enough rest the night before and take breaks as needed. (U.S. Air Force illustration/Staff Sgt. Jamal D. Sutter) 15 seconds: A rude awakening
Gut-wrenching screams, the shattering of glass, the unforgettable sounds of metal twisting and bending all around me. My truck rolling over and over and over again. I thought those were going to be my last memories.

Lt. Gen. Stephen W. Wilson Global Strike marks 5 years providing safe, secure, effective arsenal
In a 2009 speech in Prague, President Barack Obama stated as long as nuclear weapons exist, "the United States will maintain a safe, secure and effective arsenal to deter any adversary, and guarantee that defense to our allies." This is what Air Force Global Strike Command does, and has successfully carried out since 2009. Upon stand up, this command was charged with reinvigorating the Air Force Nuclear Enterprise. Although sometimes challenging, the 25,000 dedicated professionals of Air Force Global Strike Command made it possible remaining focused on the strategic value of our nuclear deterrent.

Default Air Force Logo Understanding sergeant's words: 'I've got your back'
Seeing the newly selected staff sergeants recently brought back memories of when I was selected for staff sergeant. Actually, my thoughts went to the night I graduated Airman Leadership School. As I crossed the stage after receiving my completion certificate, my co-workers gathered to congratulate me and shake my hand. My supervisor, Staff Sgt. Todd Mitchell, stayed back at the table and as I approached he shook my hand and said, "I've got your back."

Default Air Force Logo An Airman's thoughts on the 4th of July
This weekend, as we celebrate the freedoms we enjoy as citizens of this great nation, it's worthwhile to reflect on just how courageous the signers of the Declaration of Independence were in standing against the tyranny of their day toward the pursuit of liberty. The 56 signers were truly forward thinkers: well educated, of secure financial means, and filled with entrepreneurial spirit. Twenty-four were attorneys, 11 were businessmen and nine were farmers. Their self-determinism, independence of thought and empowered individualism, fueled the American Revolution and persists within our national culture even today.

Default Air Force Logo Layers of leadership
Our Chief of Staff, Gen. Mark A. Welsh III, published Air Force Instruction 1-2, "Commander's Responsibilities," May 8. The information contained within it can be described as "back to the basics of leadership." I see these basics embodied with Captain America, a man with many layers. Let's peel back his layers of leadership and explore how we can improve ourselves by following his example and our own AFI.
