Airman Leadership School Class 15-F students participate in a drill exercise Aug. 18, 2015, at Andersen Air Force Base, Guam. ALS, a 192-hour course, spread across 24 days and is divided into three major academic curriculum areas that focus on developing leadership abilities, building effective communication and the profession of arms. (U.S. Air Force photo/Senior Airman Katrina M. Brisbin) ALS: Rediscovering the profession of arms
When thinking about Airman leadership school, what thoughts come to mind? Many Airmen may think of professional military education as boring, a box to check or a waste of time. For me, ALS was none of these things.

Default Air Force Logo Follow up: It can be a matter of life, death
Really taking care of Airmen means more than passing them off to a helping agency, assuming they're good to go, and then moving on. It means following up over the long term and not allowing ourselves to believe that anyone is immune from needing a helping hand, and more than just once. It may be that follow up is the difference between life and death.

Default Air Force Logo Separated but not alone
Growing up as a military child myself, I knew separation could be extremely hard and hit at any time. Looking back, I now know how alone my mother felt whenever my father went on deployments or TDY. It seems like an eternity waiting for your loved one to return home so you aren't carrying all the weight on your shoulders. There are dozens of base agencies to make these separations easier, but I didn't realize it yet.

Default Air Force Logo The picture tells a story
There is a picture frame on my desk holding a casual snapshot of my wife and me. There's nothing particularly special about the small, silver frame. But in my 22 years in the Air Force, it's the first time I've ever had a picture of anyone on my desk at work. Seeing my loved one during the duty day is such a joy. It puts a smile on my face, especially during those tough days, and it reminds me there is more to life than work.

Default Air Force Logo Pride month: Be you, be proud
Around the world, LGBT pride is often celebrated with parties, parades, fun and festivities. The lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community and its allies come together in support of equality, freedom and the movement for civil rights. Nowadays, pride events are largely fun-filled, colorful, recreational functions, but what some don't know is that the first LGBT pride demonstration was inspired by a riot against discrimination. It was a forward movement in the struggle toward liberation and fair treatment.

Default Air Force Logo Are you MAD or SAD?
There are two distinct types of Airmen who serve: those who are here to make a difference (MAD) and those who are selfish and distracting (SAD).

Members of the Defense Attaché Office at the U.S. Embassy Singapore, along with aircrew assigned to the 65th Airlift Squadron at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam, Hawaii, and members of Detachment 2, 730th Air Mobility Squadron, Singapore, provided support to an official U.S. delegation led by former President Bill Clinton following the passing of Singapore’s founding father, Lee Kuan Yew.  Singapore is a key partner of the U.S. and the professionalism of these Airmen furthered the relationship between the two countries.  Whether in the Pacific or around the world, international Airmen are building, sustaining and furthering relationships with foreign partners and allies critical to achieving foreign policy objectives.

Singapore’s founding father, Lee Kuan Yew, recently passed away at the age of 91. Given Lee’s stature and standing, all of us at U.S. Embassy Singapore expected a large state funeral and a high-level U.S. delegation would be named and arriving soon; the funeral was just a few short days away.
