Default Air Force Logo RAGBRAI inspires instructor
About this time last year, I became interested in cycling and bought my first road bike. I also learned about the Air Force Cycling Team, which participates in the Des Moines Register's (a newspaper) Annual Great Bicycle Ride Across Iowa®, a seven-day journey every July that is the oldest organized bicycling tour in the world.

Default Air Force Logo Stay calm, beat stress this holiday season

On the other hand, charitable organizations ramp up their requests for donations to support those who are less

Default Air Force Logo Remembering Victoria
It doesn't end a career, it starts a new life. Insanity is often defined as doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result. Keeping the secret of domestic violence is like insanity.

All too often in modern life, we seek out the quick fix. And all too often, the quick fix saves time yet sacrifices quality. When it comes to bodily health, and especially pain, most of us are guilty of seeking out the "magic pill" to make our symptoms go away rather than concentrating on the problem generating the discomfort. In 2007, I was tasked
