  • Technology helps overcome deployment challenges

    Military life is not easy. The men and women who serve in our armed forces protect our freedoms and way of life. They make tremendous sacrifices along with their families in service to our country.
  • Three pounds, 11 ounces of resiliency

    In 2016 my husband and I found out I was pregnant with our second child and we were ecstatic. We had just bought our first home and the age gap between our first and second child would be three years, our "ideal" age gap. It was another girl, which is exactly what we were hoping for. We decided to name her Sadie Jean, after my husband's grandma. We were so excited for her to complete our family. We anxiously awaited her arrival, which was estimated as December 29, 2016.
  • A modern military marriage

    Six years and four months ago I married my husband. I was 19 years old and completely ignorant to the commitment I just made. Dual military marriages make up just over 11 percent of the Air Force population and like many dual couples, we were stationed apart. Less than a year after requesting join spouse orders, he was assigned 16 miles from me.
  • Balancing work, life strengthens identity

    The health benefits of maintaining a balance between our career identity and our "true self," the one typified by the activities we engage in outside of work, has led to special attention on finding the happy medium.
  • New mantra must be 'People first, mission always'

    Today's Airmen are busy. Whether its high ops tempo, constant deployments or low manning, our Airmen are being asked to do more and more every day. Nothing is more important than accomplishing the mission -- except for taking care of the people you supervise.
