  • American spirit, cutting edge technology equals revolutionary, relevant, responsive AF

    I was privileged to attend and participate in the Air Force Association Air and Space Conference held near Washington, D.C. last month. It was simply outstanding. There were many inspirational moments. The pride that I felt during the presentation given by our Chief of Staff Gen. Mark Welsh was incredible. Many themes rang through loud and clear. Lead among them, our Air Force vision: "The world's greatest Air Force -- powered by Airmen, fueled by innovation".
  • My choice, my story, my pledge

    As we prepare to kick-off this year's Combined Federal Campaign, think about the local charities and the services they provide. Think of the families who utilize those services. My family was one of them.
  • Nurturing relationships and a culture of caring

    When life gets challenging, stressors can build and conflicts can escalate, sometimes leading to abuse. Preventing domestic abuse is fundamental to basic relationship maintenance. Partners in healthy relationships work together every day to nurture their relationship, taking care to address issues and concerns when they occur. Healthy relationships should be safe, respectful and positive.
  • Hispanic Heritage Month: A legacy of history

    America is great for a vast number of reasons and although we can point out many reasons why our country so remarkable, I say we owe our success largely to our diverse backgrounds and culture within our nation.
  • Why I became a victim advocate for fellow Airmen

    Editor's note: Though the author chose to remain anonymous, this is the real story of one Airman's experience with sexual assault. Be mindful that no two sexual assault stories are the same. If you are anyone you know has been or is currently a victim of any sexual crime, contact the Sexual Assault Response Coordinator or a victim's advocate.
  • Suicide prevention: What you can do

    September 8th through the 14th is National Suicide Prevention Week. However, many people are hesitant to get involved in the discussion on the topic of suicide prevention. This is concerning because the ability to get involved and intervene is critical to saving lives.
  • Understanding sergeant's words: 'I've got your back'

    Seeing the newly selected staff sergeants recently brought back memories of when I was selected for staff sergeant. Actually, my thoughts went to the night I graduated Airman Leadership School. As I crossed the stage after receiving my completion certificate, my co-workers gathered to congratulate me and shake my hand. My supervisor, Staff Sgt. Todd Mitchell, stayed back at the table and as I approached he shook my hand and said, "I've got your back."
  • The emotionless leader: Trusted and respected by Airmen

    Our core values are more than the minimum standards by which we live; they assist us in getting the mission accomplished. To achieve that mission, we must develop our Airmen, not coddle them.
  • Goals: How many of us have them?

    Have you set goals for your future? According to dictionary.com, "a goal is the result or achievement toward which effort is directed." Goals can be short or long-term, personal, professional, spiritual or physical, and are usually specific to a person or group. According to Dr. Gail Matthews, a psychology professor at Dominican University in California, you are 42 percent more likely to reach a goal by writing it down. In short, a goal that is not written down is just a thought.
  • Did you notice the difference?

    We must continue to educate our Airmen on the meaning of racial equality and equal opportunity and we must never tolerate deviance from the standard we have set, said Lt. Col. Lonnie Hammack, the deputy commander of the 21st Mission Support Group at Peterson Air Force Base, Ga.
