Default Air Force Logo Take proper steps to address emergency
The 60th Aerospace Medicine Squadron has some unusual capabilities. Our Aerospace Operational Physiology and Training team is unique to Travis.

Default Air Force Logo Taking risks necessary to move Air Force forward
Have you heard the saying, “nothing ventured, nothing gained?” What about “he who never undertook anything, never achieved anything?” They’re statements that implore us to take risks. Risk-taking is necessary to bridge the gap between the current state and desired end state. It is embarking on the unknown, realizing triumph and tragedy have equal sway. Unfortunately, many Air Force leaders today are so reluctant to fail that they’ve actually become risk averse. What does it mean to be risk averse and how do we reverse the trend?

Default Air Force Logo Better Airmen improve teamwork
During my time in the military, I’ve been fortunate enough to travel to several Air Force bases and meet many outstanding Airmen, civilians and family members. I'd like to share some thoughts on one of my superintendent imperatives that is absolutely vital to our success and that is fostering teamwork.

Commentary by Lt. Col. James Duke, 60th Civil Engineer Squadron Commander Civil engineers show breadth of AF skills
Team Travis. One team, one fight. I can name numerous catch phrases that espouse the idea that we are all in this together, but have you ever thought of how your actions support our mission at Travis, Air Force Base, California, and beyond to support combatant commanders? Each one of us plays a vital role that has been developed and refined throughout the years to exact a desired goal to further that mission.

Commentary by Chief Master Sgt. Jason Elftmann, 60th Civil Engineer Squadron Superintendent Facility managers provide critical link to software
Have you ever wondered who pays the base’s electric bill, keeps the base cool in the summer or repairs toilets as they break? Or who ensures we have drivable roads, secured perimeter fence lines and quality drinking water? Imagine the manpower necessary to keep more than 400 facilities operating as efficiently as possible and support the more than 10,000 Airmen, Air Force civilians, contractors and dependents who enter Travis on a daily basis.

Default Air Force Logo 6th ARS' unsung heroes help with influx
Across all sections of the Air Force, work demands often change depending on the time of year. As U.S. Air Force families begin to enjoy the freedom of summer, all units brace for the onset of another season bearing down on them: Permanent change of station season. That’s right, “spring cleaning” takes on a new meaning and suddenly squadrons experience a massive change in their population and organization. This massive influx and exodus affects individuals, their families and their abilities to perform their jobs in ways we cannot imagine.

Commentary by Senior Master Sgt. Shane Hickman, 6th Air Refueling Squadron Keep finding, feeding motivation to stay focused
As I reflect on the Fourth of July festivities that took place a few weeks ago, I found myself pondering my service to this great nation and why I have continued to serve over the years. My family is no different than many families today. We are your typical red-blooded American family that loves our nation, its flag and all it stands for. We have always been patriotic and proud of the values and principles our country represents.

I am certain that at some point in everyone’s career they have heard of R.H.I.P., rank has its privileges. Whomever thought of this was obviously misinformed as to what roles and responsibilities came with progressing in rank. Fortunately, that idea has almost entirely faded away and we, as an Air Force, have gotten back to what matters, taking care of our Airmen.

Lt. Col. Robert Rayner, 921st Contingency Response Squadron commander What inspires you?
My family and I recently completed a cross-country permanent change of station – Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst, New Jersey, to Travis Air Force Base, California. We took the long route, visiting friends, family and several national parks along the way. There were two cars, two kids with two iPads, 3,700 miles, four national parks, 21 days, a few meltdowns (kids mostly), and countless family memories (good and bad).

Default Air Force Logo All ranks capable of innovation
One of the great, rule-breaking orators of the 20th century said, “The quality of our thoughts and ideas can only be as good as the quality of our language.”
