  • An outbreak of COVID-Kindness? Am I symptomatic?

    In the midst of this global pandemic, there is little known outbreak of kindness, “COVID-Kindness,” happening around the world simultaneously.
  • Unleashing the innovative spirit of Airmen

    We’re taking the momentum of a renewed focus on innovation and beginning to squander its potential, making it “just the next thing.” While senior leaders continue to emphasize innovation, our Airmen are becoming frustrated with the pace of real progress and the disproportionate focus on innovation theater – i.e. exciting events that fail to deliver real capability.
  • 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.
  • I was abused, reasons I ignored it

    October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. In observance of this, this article discusses one citizen Airman's experience to shed light on this issue."I swear I would never have hit anyone, but her..."As I sat in our couple’s therapist's office, my husband spoke the words that would one day become his motto. Statements were often preceded with,
  • 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.
  • Follow up: It can be a matter of life, death

    Really taking care of Airmen means more than passing them off to a helping agency, assuming they're good to go, and then moving on. It means following up over the long term and not allowing ourselves to believe that anyone is immune from needing a helping hand, and more than just once. It may be that follow up is the difference between life and death.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
