  • 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.
  • Finding strength, resiliency through Air Force family

    Airman 1st Class Christopher Thornbury said his Air Force family has been with him for over a year and helped him through the loss of his son, Emmitt Alan Thornbury.
  • Tommy got a toy drone for Christmas, what’s next?

    The Consumer Electronics Association believes 2015 will be a defining year for the drone, with sales expecting to approach 700,000 this year. The industry must be selling all of those drones as FAA statistics show a surge in “close call with drone” reports by pilots of manned aircraft: nearly 700 incidents so far this year, roughly triple the amount recorded in 2014.
  • Dealing with holiday stress

    The holidays can be stressful, here are some tips of how to deal with finances, family and coping with sadness.
  • Volunteerism affects positive change

    Throughout our military careers, we often talk of being a volunteer force, a subset of our culture that has volunteered to serve our country in the profession of arms. Without disrespect to anyone currently in uniform or those that have served before me, I have always been in conflict over the military/volunteer discussions.
