Default Air Force Logo Stress don’t let it pull you down

Every day carries all kinds of potential stress triggers and these may vary from person to person. Common sources of stress include: work, personal finances, household responsibilities, school

Default Air Force Logo Don't forget your battle-rattle
When I deployed to Baghdad, one phrase I heard and quickly learned to do was my need to wear my "battle-rattle." Given the risks associated with being in Baghdad, this individual protective equipment of a helmet and protective vest with embedded ceramic plates were important additions to my uniform. Given an attack, this individual protective

Some of you may have seen me participate in the honor guard posting colors during the quarterly awards luncheon a few days ago. I want you to know, it was not about me. I have had a desire to be able to train and honor our people by being able to perform, even if just in small ways, with our dedicated honor guard Airmen. I have been working to

Default Air Force Logo The culture of responsible choices
As we make our way through and complete a Wingman Week here, I thought it fitting to share some thoughts on the wingman concept and the concept of the Culture of Responsible Choices, or CoRC. The wingman concept was born in the war-torn skies over Europe during the First World War, where it was quickly learned flying solo against the enemy had

Default Air Force Logo No need for first sergeants
I've always said and always will say, "There wouldn't be a need for first sergeants if first-line supervisors would do their supervisory duties." Just stop and think about this statement for a second. What is the difference between an involved first-line supervisor and a first sergeant? Both can make referrals to any base agencies: Life skills,

Default Air Force Logo No one comes close?
So there I was, or really, there it was ... the statement, "Just because we say we are the world's greatest Air Force, does not mean that we are." That was the first time I heard anyone say that before and my first thought was, "This person has a lot of guts!" Then I thought about the statement some more and I started to agree. I don't know

Default Air Force Logo Saluting -- not just for American officers
It's a beautiful summer day here at Spangdahlem Air Base, and I am riding on the Surrey Bus through our base. As we are driving, I watch countless Sabers walk by the bus, some look and others don't. Then I hear the question, "Why didn't that person salute the General who is on this bus?" Fellow Sabers, as an NCO working in the Protocol office, it
