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,

Default Air Force Logo For love of country
Last month we celebrated Asian Pacific Heritage Month. After attending all the festivities from luncheons to banquets, I was left with a few thoughts. For the 287,000 Asian-Pacific Americans currently serving in our military, the feeling of freedom and liberty is virtually like a person's feeling towards love of their country. After 37 years of

Default Air Force Logo Please remember cost of freedom this Fourth
It is hard to believe Independence Day is already here! Two hundred and thirty years ago, several innovative and brave men declared the colonies' independence from England and fought and won a war which gained our freedom. From that day on, Americans have had rights few other people outside this country enjoy. Today we are again at war, helping

Default Air Force Logo Drug use carries immeasurable consequences for loved ones
Guilty! As I heard the president of the court martial board announce the panel's verdict, my heart sank for the weeping mother of a young Air Force officer. One word, a powerful word, a life changing word, a word that will have a profound impact on this young man for the rest of his life—guilty.His crime? Illegal use of cocaine. How was he caught?

Default Air Force Logo Keep deployed Airmen in mind
By We've heard the expression, "out of sight, out of mind," and unfortunately in our busy lives, this is too often so true. Deployments are becoming a normal course of Air Force life, but it never is easy when we leave our families and friends behind. For those of us busy keeping the Team Travis mission moving here, we sometimes forget those

Default Air Force Logo Transformation: now is the time
I can’t predict the future. Never could, never will. [Maybe I have a defective crystal ball, but more likely, it probably is just a really cool marble.] But as I listen to our senior leaders in the Air Force, two things in the near future appear easy to predict. First, our Air Force will have fewer Airmen of all ranks, including civilians. The

There’s no big secret we’re in a difficult period of time. We’re being asked to “do more with less,” “get leaner” and “work smarter not harder.” The big question for many of us is “how are we suppose to do this with fewer people and the current ops tempo?” We are so accustomed to having an abundant amount of resources that when any are taken away

Each and every day our Airmen, civilian employees and families make sacrifices for their country. Since the Global War on Terrorism began in 2001, the sacrifices asked of our Airmen are much greater. Airmen are leaving their families for 365-day deployments, putting their lives on the line every day and working very long hours when they are home.

This week Chief Johnson and I had to opportunity to travel to our nation’s capitol in Washington D.C. and meet with the members of the Congress who represent those of us who live and work here at Travis. Your daily sacrifices and contributions to our nation are greatly appreciated by the Congressional members and their staffs, and they were
