Default Air Force Logo The expanding role of our "Battlefield Airmen"
Air Force civil engineers continue to adapt to the ever changing battlefield, morphing into combat engineers or what leadership has labeled "battlefield-airmen." For the past three years, nearly 4,000 civil engineers have blazed a trail into new territory once seen only by the warriors of the Army. These "battlefield Airmen" in Iraq are not part of

Default Air Force Logo Pride in yourself is what’s important
I have a mirror hanging in my office with a poem etched into the glass called: The Face in the Glass, it is based on the work written by Dale Wimbrow. It goes like this: When you get what you want in your struggle for self And the world makes you King for a day Then go to the mirror and look at yourself And see what that face has to say. For it

Default Air Force Logo Do you know your flag’s history?
You see them on houses, on cars, in front of government buildings, even on T-shirts. It seems it has once again become chic to "show the colors." Flags have existed for more than 4,000 years. The first type of flag, a metal or wooden pole with carvings on top, was called a vexilloid. About 2,000 years ago, flags evolved into pieces of colored

Default Air Force Logo Air Force changing, values stay strong
The world and our Air Force are obviously changing at a rapid rate. However, there are also things that haven't changed...our core values! But what do our core values mean to you? Are they words you live by? Are they artificial words you use to spice up a performance report? Or maybe they are just metaphorical words we hear recited in speeches? I'm

Default Air Force Logo Leave program gives Airmen recharge
We are one month shy of the five year anniversary of the attacks on the World Trade Center and Pentagon. On that day, our lives as Americans and as Airmen changed forever. Today, we are working longer hours, deploying for extended periods in support of the Global War on Terrorism and continuously protecting the lives and freedoms of American

Default Air Force Logo Tactical communicators move into 60th AMW
Change is a word with which all Airmen are very familiar. With recent Force Shaping and many projected position deletions in the support community, there still are a few "safe" areas to work. As communications squadrons are hit hard with cuts, our newly assigned Theater Deployable Communications teams are not. I'll explain why. Every day, hundreds

Default Air Force Logo Integrity, Service, Excellence
As proud members of the United States Air Force, we've learned to appreciate the powerfully positive culture that surrounds us as we live our lives by the three Air Force core values of Integrity First, Service Before Self and Excellence in All We Do. The fact that the great majority of Team Travis members completely embrace our core value explains

Default Air Force Logo Leadership can be found anywhere
A few months ago I had the opportunity to hear Colonel Arquiette speak at Airmen Leadership School class 06-E graduation dinner. He had advice for our future NCOs that struck a chord with me and my own model of leadership. In part he said, "No matter whether you are an officer, a civilian or enlisted, leadership is leadership." As a squadron

Default Air Force Logo Being an Airman requires passion, sacrifice
Today we have some of the best and brightest Airmen our force has ever seen. America sends us her sons and daughters, demanding we cultivate, develop, grow and care for them. She sends them to us because she knows we will provide an environment that allows every individual an opportunity to grow and reach their full potential. Their  road to
