  • Be the 'Wolf'

    Wing commanders coin 'wolves.' Squadron commanders promote 'wolves' to Senior Airman below-the-zone. There is no secret. It's simple: Crush your job, be the best in your section, flight or squadron. Evolve into the 'wolf', and Col. Robert Novotny guarantees, you will find what you seek.
  • Character

    Character is what's deep inside each of us, it’s who we are on a daily basis, it's who we are when things go well and more importantly, when things go wrong. It’s who we are when we're in leadership positions, as well as with the family in our living rooms. Character is our moral and ethical strength; it is who we are when no one is looking.
  • Analyzing failure, realizing success

    A rush to judge the professional who experienced failure before engaging in a rational evaluation of all the details is detrimental to building a team who is eager to serve, learn, fix, and better execute our Air Force’s diverse missions.
  • Remember to not just celebrate but act

    The theme every year for the Martin Luther King Jr. Day is, "Remember! Celebrate! Act! A Day On ... Not a Day Off.” Celebrate your achievements, act with honor, and remember that Jan. 18 is a day to commemorate a hero while reflecting back to our past as heroes of the U.S. Air Force.
  • Make a difference

    Will you make a difference in someone else's life today? We have all heard someone say, "Take care of your people and their families." Have you ever stopped to think why we hear this so often?
  • Aftermath of a DUI: Who's really affected?

    I used to wonder if people would look at me different if they knew. Would they whisper about me? Would they tell others what happened? Does anyone actually have the guts to ask me what happened? Are they looking at me as the girl who's related to a child killer?
  • New year, new you? Tips for successful resolutions

    Have you ever gone into the new year certain this will be the year you change your life for the better, but after just a few weeks, you fall right back into the same habits? Well, you are not alone.
  • Take time to explain ‘why’

    Good communication is a key element of successful organizations. As leaders, managers, or supervisors, we're sometimes so focused on communicating the "what" or the "how" that we fail to explain why the work someone is doing is so important.
  • Volunteer for the right reasons

    The word "volunteer" is defined by the Merriam-Webster Dictionary as "a person who voluntarily undertakes or expresses a willingness to undertake a service." In a given week, I'm asked three to four times why I volunteer my personal time as much as I do to organizations that are not my primary duty. The answer has and will always be the same, that the organizations I choose to give my time to are my passion, not volunteerism.
  • A Honduran experience

    Senior Airman Westin Warburton writes about his time with Joint Task Force-Bravo in Honduras and how his experience there has changed his outlook on life.
