Default Air Force Logo Can change be good in the AF?
A wise man once said to me "only a baby with a dirty diaper likes change." However, every one of us, from the Airmen turning the wrenches to the general briefing the President, knows that change is a constant in the Air Force today. We have all been briefed on manpower reductions and Air Force Smart Operations 21 Lean initiatives in hopes that we

Default Air Force Logo USAF Bands are in the fight
I'm still amazed when people stare at me and say, "Our Air Force has bands? What do you do? You mean Tops in Blue? Oh, I see... you play the National Anthem for a change of command." I guess with bands at only ten continental United States locations and four non-continental United States locations, chances of an Airman being assigned to a base with

Default Air Force Logo First Sergeant leadership develops enlisted force
You've heard it before, and it's true; our enlisted force is the best in the world and the envy of Air Forces around the globe. Over the years, through education, experience and leadership training, we've developed strong and highly effective leaders. Our first sergeants are at the tip of the spear in terms of providing the leadership that will

Default Air Force Logo Air Force 60th anniversary celebrates past, present
This year we celebrate the 60th anniversary of the creation of the world's best Air Force. To kick off the commemorative year a memorial focusing on the branch's core values was dedicated, last October, to all of the men and women of the Air Force, past and present, in Washington D.C. Locally, our 60th Anniversary heritage flag is flying beneath

Default Air Force Logo Loyalty is a two-way street
The Air Force core value of "Service Before Self" is being put to the ultimate test. In my 16 years in the Air Force, I have often heard the catch-phrase "do more with less" used to encourage us to cut waste, work harder, and--within the margins of safety--to simply get the job done. But the steady decline in Air Force manning (from 535,233 active

Default Air Force Logo Airman's job requires safety in all aspects, at all times
I recently returned from a trip to Scott Air Force Base, Ill. It was a great trip with the exception of the brief excitement we experienced during our flight from Denver to St Louis. Our aircraft flew through the wake turbulence of a 747 which caused the plane to momentarily feel out of control. As you can imagine this scared a few of the

Default Air Force Logo AFSO21 posed to transform Air Force
As the vice wing commander I have the honor of representing the wing commander on many of his councils. Of all the base councils I participate in, the council that excites me the most is the Air Force Smart Operations for the 21 Century Executive Steering Committee. The ESC is comprised of all deputy group commanders and the members of the 60th Air

Default Air Force Logo Your accountability impacts the Air Force
One of the issues I struggle with as a commander is ensuring that I'm doing everything I can to provide my folks with the tools to make good life decisions in order to guarantee they can focus on the mission, while also knowing their home life is as happy and carefree as possible with today's hectic pace. After all, if an Airman has money, legal,

Default Air Force Logo AFSO21 energizes operations
Last week Team Travis closed a very productive first quarter of 2007, filled with major exercises, including Eagle Flag 07-03 and Crisis Look 07-02, multiple C-17 deliveries and the deployment and re-deployment of hundreds of Team Travis personnel. Through all of these events, we discovered processes that aren't necessarily the best way to

Default Air Force Logo Got feedback?
Our Professional Military Education is brimming with tales of learning leaders. Most stories detail leaders with voracious appetites for reading and how this trait helped them prepare for challenges. Fewer, albeit some, discuss reflection as a learning leader's tool. Even less discuss feedback and those that do present it from the giver's point of
