Default Air Force Logo Please excuse the mess...
You may have noticed many changes going on throughout the 17th Mission Support Group over the last several weeks. As we prepare to merge the 17th Mission Support Squadron and the 17th Services Division, multiple offices have relocated or rearranged their office spaces as well as organizational structure. These moves are essential to meet the

Default Air Force Logo Tool time
I was crawling around the sidewalk under a streetlight the other night when someone stopped and asked if she could help me. I answered, "I'm looking for a quarter I dropped." She asked if I dropped it right there. "No," I responded, "I dropped it in that dark alley way over there, but the light is much better here." OK, that didn't really happen,

As an Air Force Contracting Officer, along with my squadron, we are bound by core values which shape and define our culture. They allow us to constantly transform ourselves and the environment in which we work into a professional climate bound by ethics and integrity.  It is not an accident that our core values start with "Integrity First,"

Default Air Force Logo Are you "just" the expectation?
Every now and then in my career when I was not so full of my own opinion and ideas, I would take time to listen and would actually glean some good information and advice.

Default Air Force Logo Old Soldier remembers Korean Armistice
July in Korea--the typically hot and humid summer month in the middle of monsoon season was unusually dry and pleasant in 1953. I was a first-grade schoolboy living amidst the rubble and devastation left in Seoul. I was also still overwhelmed by the loss of both parents just three years prior, during the beginning of the so-called "Forgotten War."

Default Air Force Logo My treasure box
"Hey, Mom, do you have a big box?" my son, Michael, asked the other day. You should know that he collects stuff, and builds things out of boxes, then keeps most of it under his bed. I became noticeably suspicious at this request, mostly because the area under his bed is full at the moment. So, I stalled, using the usual tactics. "Mike, I'm sorry, I

Default Air Force Logo A personal touch
We live in the Information Age. Technology has exploded during my generation's lifetime. We have come a long way since I was a child and spoke to my grandmother through a telephone connected to the wall with cords. I remember my mother rolling a dishwasher across the kitchen to connect it to the sink with hoses in order to use it - innovation! It

Default Air Force Logo Be proud!
Not to start a positive article with an apology, but I really don't have an in-depth knowledge of every Air Force Specialty Code we train here at Goodfellow. Whereas your own squadron commander may be able to relate each technical detail to the outcome you produce, I can speak intelligently from the experience of an outsider to every AFSC other

Default Air Force Logo Debunking the myth of “Doing more with less”
It has been nearly seven years since the United States became involved in a global war against radical Islamists who seek to do enormous harm to our nation. Even before the Global War on Terrorism began, the Air Force was engaged in near-continuous contingency operations in Iraq and the Balkans for 11 years. It's alarming to note that, during this
