Commentary: Transforming the Civilian Defender Program
U.S. Air Force leadership declared 2020 as the Year of Integrated Base Defense, or IBD, focusing on how every air and space professional fits into a layered defensive network. IBD is greater in scope than any single career field. It requires active participation between all Air Force specialty codes and ranks to operate as a cohesive fighting force.
One team's support of the Department of Defense has a very unique mission: to identify and analyze all wildlife involved in collisions with aircraft, which is one of the major causes of damage to U.S. Air Force aircraft.

The AFSOC Air-Ground team in action: How Precision Strike turned the tide of battle against ‘the ISIS-K Pentagon.’
I served as the lead joint terminal attack controller and fire support coordinator for a major assault against a notorious Islamic State group – Khorisan (ISIS-K) stronghold in Nangarhar, Afghanistan.

The Year of the Defender improved career field capabilities
As we move forward into the new year, I’d like to reflect upon the past, “Year of the Defender” and how this critical initiative equipped our defenders to be more lethal and more ready. The increased investment in training, resourcing and equipment provided the career field with a spark that will continue to deliver capabilities to our defenders for years to come.
Depression can offer opportunity for reconnection
Depression can be spurred by a range of factors such as a change in life circumstances, a change in lifestyle behaviors, loss of a loved one, loss of a job, or even loss of hope. The antidote for depression often begins with talking to people.
Keeping cool over Salt Lake
Capt. Jonathan Lowell recounts his story and lessons learned after experiencing an integrated power package failure while flying a F-35A Lightning II.
Instructor duty: Times are changing
Thick skin. Selfless perspective. Fearless leadership. When asked what I wanted my officer trainees to leave Officer Training School with, these three concepts defined my expectations.
Creating high performance through job satisfaction
Do you like your job? Do your Airmen like their jobs? If you answered no, why? How you answer those questions can say a lot about your organization. Believe it or not, you can create a better workplace for your Airmen.
