From the CMSAF



It is no secret that we are at an inflection point in our Air Force. As Air Force Chief of Staff Gen. CQ Brown, Jr. says, "Good enough today will fail tomorrow."

We need leaders at all levels who can think strategically, and execute tactically. To that end, I'm bringing you a reading list that will flex and evolve as we build the Air Force we need to compete, deter and win across all domains.

As a lifelong learner, I am constantly adding to my reading list — looking for new ideas that can challenge my assumptions and help me grow beyond my own limitations. As your 19th Chief Master Sergeant of the Air Force, I am committed to sharing this information with you, in the hope that you will apply it and eventually grow beyond us all.

We are the best Air Force in the world because of our people. I encourage each of you to take up the mantle of a learning leader, who continues to challenge the status quo and take us to new heights.

I am honored to serve alongside you, and I look forward to seeing you all out in our Air Force.

Aim High,


Chief Master Sergeant of the Air Force
