Default Air Force Logo Are you breaking the chain?
For those of you whom I have not had the pleasure to meet, Hello! I'm Scott Hoover, the new 60th Civil Engineer Squadron commander and I don’t read email. Sounds like someone joining a new support group doesn't it? My animosity toward this cancer is not based in commonly heard complaints. It is frequently used to violate a mission-critical military

Default Air Force Logo Recognize those who go above and beyond the call of duty
Last Friday we recognized our quarterly award winners to include our dorm and room of the quarter. Sitting there looking across the audience, feeling the excitement and enthusiasm the crowd exhibited, got me pondering about the importance of recognizing our people or lack thereof. I realize no individual is automatically entitled to an award or

Default Air Force Logo Wingman concept valuable asset
For a few years we have been hearing and seeing first-hand the value of the Wingman concept. On a daily basis here at Travis, the stresses and strains of life's ups and downs coupled with being AMC Airmen in our Air Force that's still engaged heavily after 4 ½ years of wartime operations tempo, a few of us can use a little help from our fellow

Default Air Force Logo Losing one Travis Airman is one to many
I'm very proud to be a part of this great organization and have the privilege to serve with the most outstanding Airmen. In the past three weeks I've witness some tremendous effort and hard work exhibited by all and unfortunately some stress. Our senior leaders realize that stress sometimes is the result of stretching our people to their limits.

Default Air Force Logo Take advantage of Travis' benefits
When I meet with our newest Airmen on Travis at the First Term Airmen's Center, I always ask them why they joined our Air Force. Aside from serving their country, education, health benefits coupled with travel opportunities round out the top reasons why they joined our Air Force. These young Airmen are excited to be beginning their careers and

Default Air Force Logo Airmen called to different duty
Every Marine, a Rifleman! So goes one of the most well-known credos of the United States Marine Corps. Like us Airmen, Marines each have their own specialties. But the bottom line for the Marines is that no matter what their specialty happens to be, they are riflemen first. As the first to the fight, Marines must be extremely skilled at their basic

Default Air Force Logo Mentoring Airmen; essential for AF
Last week I spoke to you regarding preparing our Airmen to be supervisors, and leaders as well as their continued development. One of the most rewarding things a person can do is help another reach their full potential. As enlisted leaders, mentoring and developing our Airmen is an inherent responsibility. However, if we are to remain the back bone

Default Air Force Logo Strive for excellence; limit mediocrity
Noted author Charles Knight once said, "Anybody who accepts mediocrity - in school, on the job, in life - is a person who compromises, and when the leader compromises, the whole organization compromises." Many people in this world work at their jobs and accept mediocrity. You can all probably think of episodes of poor costumer service, shoddy

Default Air Force Logo Thank you for taking care of each other
We are only a third of the way through 101 Days of Summer and already the Air Force has lost eleven Airmen; five of them in vehicle accidents. Fortunately, none of those have been Team Travis members, nor fellow Air Mobility Command warriors for that matter. For that, I want to personally say “thank you,” especially after this past 4th of July long

Default Air Force Logo Take command of your future; make sure records are in order
One of the great frustrations for any leader is when they can’t get a great assignment or secure a key position for a real sharp troop. Even more frustrating is when a leader can’t get that deserving Airman a promotion or profesional military education opportunity. Often, this happens due to problems with an individual’s records. In many instances,
