Default Air Force Logo Command and Control wins fight
Simply put, Air Combat Command's mission is to develop and nurture airmen, be prepared to deploy and be prepared to fight. Our six focus areas -- people, expeditionary operations, command and control, information operations, infrastructure and transformation -- prioritize our limited resources.My philosophy is: "If you don't control it, you can't

Default Air Force Logo You're worth more than $4.50
I remember reading some time ago that you could buy all the organic substances that form the human body for $4.50. Less than five bucks. Hmmm ... never thought about it that way before, have you? Does this make you feel insignificant?Way back when, back when I was only thinking about joining the Air Force, I believed the Air Force was some sort

People, especially young airmen I meet when visiting our training units, often ask what it takes to be successful in today's Air Force.The things you should do to have a successful career have not changed since airmen first wore chevrons.

Default Air Force Logo When it comes to integrity, practice makes perfect
As most of us do, I often look at world events covered in the media from the perspective of "How does this affect me?" or "What lessons can I take away from these events?"The continuing war on terrorism, the one-year anniversary of Sept. 11, and the threat of a new war in Iraq have overshadowed other recent events in the national media with

Default Air Force Logo Breast cancer -- A family story
It's one of my first memories from my childhood, and it haunts me.I was sitting in the living room combing my mom's hair and it just seemed to fall out -- all of it.At six years old, I was affected by something most people may never experience.

Default Air Force Logo Core values don't include drinking underage
It used to be that having a couple of drinks after work was the thing to do. A whole group would head from the dorms to the Airman's Club and drink the night away.In the early 1980s, things started to change. The drinking age was changed to 19, then 20 and then 21. People were upset.I hear the same complaints today that I heard then: "If I am

Default Air Force Logo There's more to patriotism than meets the eye
I've always considered myself a patriot, but recently I've come to realize there's more to patriotism than wearing red, white and blue.Let me set the scene for my awakening.The cell phone rang; it was the boss. He began, "Rich, it's Todd. I've got good news and bad news."Taking the bait, I replied, "Go ahead, give me the bad news."His tone

Default Air Force Logo You make the call
Have you ever heard the saying, "If the baby's ugly, call it ugly"? Not a very nice thing to hear, but it gets your attention, doesn't it?The meaning of this anonymous quote, quite simply, is to make the tough call.As a supervisor, you are placed in positions every day by your troops to try and accommodate one or more of their wishes. When you

Default Air Force Logo Planning helps reduce stress when deployment ends
Prior to a deployment, the Air Force wants to make the separation as easy as possible for the military family so the member can concentrate on his or her job while away from home.Obtaining a power of attorney, setting up an allotment and ensuring family members are properly enrolled in the Defense Enrollment Eligibility Reporting System so they get

Default Air Force Logo No matter what uniform, we all must pull together
After more than 17 years as an Air Force civilian employee here, I have great admiration, respect and appreciation for the people who serve in all branches of our military.I also have a deep sense of pride in the way most Americans have responded to the sacrifices men and women in uniform have made on their behalf since the events of Sept. 11.I
