Default Air Force Logo Summer Safety
Spring is finally here! The warm weather and longer hours of sunlight will bring picnics, weekends at the lake and road trips. These are all fun activities, but with the combination of alcohol or inattentiveness, they can prove dangerous. Already this year we have tragically lost two Airmen in automobile accidents; these tragedies affected many

Default Air Force Logo Travis' newest noncommisioned officers
Last Friday, we hosted our monthly Noncommissioned Officer Induction Ceremony and inducted approximately 71 new staff sergeants into the NCO tier...congratulations to Team Travis' NCO's. Each stripe they have earned in their brief Air Force career is equally important and brings with it a sense of accomplishment and growth. However, joining the

Default Air Force Logo Don’t forget to stretch
Having had the privilege to work with the Air Force Men's and Women's Volleyball teams last year, it came to my attention how many people do not stretch properly before workouts. During the three-week tryouts for the teams, I saw many elite-level athletes with injuries that could have easily been prevented with proper stretching. So, what does this

Default Air Force Logo Preparation brings success
Success doesn't come to those with the will to succeed; it comes to those with the will to prepare! Next week we begin another three-day, round-the-clock exercise designed to test our ability to deploy.

Default Air Force Logo Recognizing Women's History Month means remembering past
The public celebration of women's history in this country began in 1978 as "Women's History Week" right here in Sonoma County, Calif. The week of March 8 was selected because it encompassed International Women's Day. International Women's Day has been celebrated for more than ninety-five years. We now observe Women's History Month each year because

This week, two members of our AFSO 21 Team, Capt. Darren Long and Senior Master Sgt. Nancy Vallance, and I had the opportunity to participate in a two-day Air Force Smart Operations for the 21st Century training off-site in Seattle, Wash.

Default Air Force Logo Conducting yourself appropriately while in uniform
About a month ago, I discussed the importance of exhibiting a professional military image. However, my article focused on passing the eyeball test when wearing the uniform. More specifically, I stated the importance for commanders to scrutinize their members in uniform even if they are able to pass our fit exam. This week I'd like to expand my

Default Air Force Logo Leading "Swiss Army Knife" Airmen
In an era when technological advances are generating the need for new units like F-22 and unmanned aerial vehicle squadrons, good old-fashioned teamwork and versatility are driving the need for another type of unit--Air Mobility Command's two-year-old Contingency Response Groups. Eight months ago, I accepted command of a CRG squadron and became the

Default Air Force Logo It takes a team effort to achieve AFSO 21 success
Last week, I had the opportunity to facilitate a Rapid Improvement Event on the Flight Meal process to aircrews. An RIE allows a group to sit together as a team to evaluate their current process and figure out a better way to do the process by eliminating unnecessary steps. This was the first event within the 60th Air Mobility Wing that involved

Default Air Force Logo Recognizing Airmen's efforts
Accolades come from many different sources including our superiors, our peers, our families and even complete strangers. Each of us reacts to recognition differently. Some of us are embarrassed and humbled by the honor--others crave it, are motivated by it and gain self-esteem from it. Whichever emotions swell when recognition is bestowed upon you,
