  • Adapt and overcome

    My firstborn child recently turned 2 months old. Amidst the irresistible joy of having a new little buddy, I look back over these last eight weeks and wonder how my spouse and I survived.
  • There’s always a cost

    As Air Force members, we face dilemmas all the time. There is simply not enough people, time or money to do everything we want, so we must constantly decide where to spend our limited resources in order to most effectively accomplish our dynamic mission.
  • 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.

  • 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?
  • 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
