Default Air Force Logo Cyber culture and continued transformation
It may be hard to believe but it was just over six years ago in December 2005 that the Air Force unveiled a new mission statement in response to a dynamic environment that had changed dramatically over almost six decades for our service. A significant addition to the mission statement was the Air Force's validation of cyberspace as an operational

Default Air Force Logo Promotions
There comes a time in most people's career where we have to think about what we've accomplished, what we'd like to accomplish and when it's time to consider moving on. Getting promoted in the military is not automatic and requires recurring commitment by those who strive to continually progress up the ranks. Some Airmen believe promotions are based

Default Air Force Logo Without Support...Mission Abort
Part of the Mission Support Group's chant is without support ... mission abort. While that is certainly true across the group, the Logistics Readiness Squadron provides the wing with a vital portion of that support. As my tenure for command comes to a close, I reflect back on the pride and professionalism displayed by the 61 civilians and 7

Default Air Force Logo Government-contractor interactions
Throughout the last several decades, Defense Department has become increasingly dependent upon contractors to provide support, assistance, infrastructure and innovation toward the mission of national defense.

Default Air Force Logo Love and gratitude
As the petals of the Valentine's Day flowers start to gently curl and the chocolate-induced sugar coma slowly begins to lift, we must remember to appreciate the support and sacrifices of our loved ones, past and present, not just for one day a year, but every day. Military and civilian members of the Defense Department are truly blessed to have an

Default Air Force Logo Reflecting on command
This week marks number 20 of my 24 months of command here and I find myself not wanting to believe time has passed so quickly. I began command just like many of my peers, excited, nervous, anxious and ready to get started. So, now 20 months later I am asking myself what's next, while also taking some time to reflect on the months that have already

Default Air Force Logo Competing Priorities
We all have competing priorities in our daily routine. Multitasking is not new, nor is the concept of do more with less, budget and manpower cuts or being told to just get it done. I believe Gen. Stephen Lorenz, the commander of the Air Education and Training Command, said it best at the AETC Squadron Commander's Course, "We can do anything, but we

Default Air Force Logo Bringing back the ‘Victory Garden’
During WWII, the entire nation had to come together to achieve victory. Mandatory rationing was the norm to allow the government to ship needed supplies to troops in the field. One example of how this was accomplished was the "Victory Garden." Every family was encouraged to grow a garden for fresh vegetables so the government could make the most of

Default Air Force Logo A lesson in driving safety
It was December of 2005 when I got into my first car accident. I was traveling down Carter Avenue in my hometown of Pawtucket in Rhode Island. Carter Avenue happened to be the very street I live on. Looking back now I suppose the old adage about most vehicle accidents occurring within one mile of a person's home was dead on accurate for my case. A
