  • Air Force medicine: A vision for the future

    The United States Air Force's core missions are air and space superiority, intelligence surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR), rapid global mobility, global strike, and command and control. These are almost identical (but in different terms) to the missions the USAF had in 1947. But we now do these missions in three domains: Air, Space and Cyberspace.
  • I really shouldn't be here

    A couple of feet and a half a second. These may seem like insignificant measurements; but when combined with fatigue, a couple of feet almost cost me my career, and that half a second almost ended my life.
  • My journey as a victim advocate

    I learned about the Sexual Assault Prevention and Response program. After learning about the victim advocacy program, I immediately signed up because I wanted to make a difference.
  • Lessons learned in protecting social media accounts

    Airmen should ensure they safeguard both personal and professional social media accounts.
  • It's 1700 somewhere

    Its side effects can range from confusion to induced sprinting for cover, to feelings of pride. It has the power to stop people in their tracks and causes self-induced paralysis for nearly two minutes at a time.
  • The Air Force issued me my 'kids'

    While I've decided to live the child-free lifestyle, the Air Force, in its infinite wisdom, saw the need to issue me two kids. They are both straight out of technical training and brand new to the Air Force, and one is still too young to accept an adult drink.
  • How do you 'spend' Christmas?

    It was October. My wife and I knew Christmas was near, because the holiday decorations had hit the shelves of local retailers and, as reality set in, we both understood that the few remaining weeks before the big day would be checkered with trips to the mall, late nights sifting through sales in local newspaper, and perhaps a "concrete camping trip" in search of cheap electronics.
  • Earning your wings this holiday season

    During this busy holiday season, let's take time to remember those who are deployed by sending a letter or email and checking in on their family. Let's take time to visit those who must work over the holidays, standing watch at entry control points, operating control centers or caring for the sick and injured at our military hospitals.
  • Maintenance versus repair ... of our Airmen

    This commentary is not about aircraft, vehicles, or even any mechanical components. It's about our Airmen and how we manage their care and development throughout their careers.
  • How did we lose this young Airman?

    She was an Airman Leadership School distinguished graduate, earned staff sergeant her first time testing, received all 5s on her Enlisted Performance Reports and took part in two deployments. Clearly she was a high-performing Airman. But, in her words, the Air Force had made it clear it didn't want her. What happened that made this Airman leave the service?
