  • Commentary: Transforming the Civilian Defender Program

    U.S. Air Force leadership declared 2020 as the Year of Integrated Base Defense, or IBD, focusing on how every air and space professional fits into a layered defensive network.

  • Keeping cool over Salt Lake

    Capt. Jonathan Lowell recounts his story and lessons learned after experiencing an integrated power package failure while flying a F-35A Lightning II.
  • 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.
  • Look past 1947 for Air Force roots

    Maybe it's a genetic thing I share with them, but I agree that Air Force history predates Sept. 18, 1947, and think we should do a better job of recognizing that. The problem is, of course, what to use as a starting date for such remembrances?
