Default Air Force Logo Sharing the burden
One of the clichés I invariably read during my morning review of the Early Bird--the Pentagon's daily compendium of military-related newspaper articles--is how the American people aren't "sharing the burden" of the Global War on Terrorism with the United States Armed Forces. The articles pontificate about how tax cuts and yellow ribbon magnets on

Default Air Force Logo A pinewood derby lesson
It all started innocently enough. My eight-year-old son Liam was invited to a Cub Scout meeting by one of his friends. I was TDY the night of the meeting (off on another adventure to lovely Goodfellow Air Force Base). When I returned my son was excited and told me he had great news...we'd be competing in the Pinewood Derby in two weeks! He showed

Default Air Force Logo When it comes to safety, remember the three “Ds”
With the 101 Critical Days of Summer rapidly approaching and the recent (and on-going) severe weather throughout our part of the country, safety should be on everyone's mind. I feel obliged to share a few basic thoughts on safety that might prove useful. These by no means are earth-shattering concepts, but rather simple philosophical safety

Default Air Force Logo Living healthy
May is physical fitness and sports month, perhaps the perfect time for you to start that new workout plan you've been putting off for the past few months. Almost anyone, at any age, can do some type of physical activity. You can still exercise even if you have a health condition like heart disease or diabetes. In fact, physical activity may help.

Default Air Force Logo Keeping our Air Force the Best
Too often many of us in the military community gauge our efforts only in terms of what we do in our particular specialty. While on the surface this may make sense, it only paints half of a picture and does not do justice to what the Air Force hired us to do. That is the subject of this article as I wish to explore the commonality we all have as Air

Default Air Force Logo Inspiration for a commander
Command is a tough gig. I'm not complaining; believe me when I say I love it and don't want to do anything else in my Air Force career, but it is a tough job. So why do I love it? I don't do it for the money. As all military people are aware none of us will get rich serving our country. It isn't the power; I'm just not made that way. So what keeps

Default Air Force Logo Changes coming to 17 CONS
Yes, contracting will be transforming like many of the other functionals across the Air Force. Here in the continental United States, our contracting transformation is called Installation Acquisition Transformation.
