I have two main missions. The first is to produce war ready aircraft and ammo. The second is to take care of the Airmen and families that make mission one possible. If you're spending resources on things that don't contribute to either, then it is time to re-evaluate.
100 percent compliance when there is clear guidance.
Be creative when we have the option to do so.
Have the courage to act in either situation.
