Default Air Force Logo 60th AMW commander returns
It is great to be back at Travis! I just completed a four-month deployment to Southwest Asia as the deputy director of mobility forces for the Combined Forces Air Component Commander in U.S. Central Command. I worked in the Combined Air Operations Center, helping to direct planning and execution for theater tanker and airlift missions supporting

Wingman concept essential to safety
I am sad to report our streak of no DUIs came to an end last week. Though disappointed the streak ended, I am very proud of the 45 days we went without a DUI. Speaking with the rest of the base’s leadership, none of us can remember a period that long in quite a while. What this shows me is that our Airmen are taking the Wingman concept to heart and

Default Air Force Logo Working with others inspires leaders
The opportunity to serve and work each day with some of the brightest, most capable people our country has to offer inspires us to lead. We have been fortunate to work for and with some great Americans, men and women [officers, enlisted and civilians] who place service before self each and every day of their lives. Their daily commitment has made

Default Air Force Logo Leaders create foundation for future
Defining leadership and explaining why I lead is a challenge, but searching within to determine why you have chosen a career that demands leadership is even more daunting. As I pondered the question it became clear that my reasons have changed over the years. A career in the military carries a significant burden and each of us will be called upon

It has been a very short eight months in California and already I am saying goodbye. Strange! Although the family and I have experienced a few short stays during our almost 25 years in the Air Force, this one is much different. Of the many reasons Travis has been distinct from other assignments, the prominent is its people! From the wing’s most

Default Air Force Logo Airmen success inspires chief
Leadership is the most exciting and beneficial thing that has occurred in my military life. As a leader I am motivated by a myriad of things. The first of which is the idea I learned from my parents that you can do anything you place your mind to. I am not bound by the rules that most prescribe to which indicates external forces, socioeconomic

Default Air Force Logo Why I Lead
My inspiration to lead varies from day-to-day and moment-to-moment, but always with the same goal, to contribute and make a difference. The sense of pride you feel knowing that you are part of something as awesome as our Air Force motivates me to do my very best. The trust and faith our Air Force, nation and certainly my family have placed in me is

Default Air Force Logo Making a Difference
What is your inspiration and motivation to serve in the Air Force? Inspiration to serve and lead in the Air Force may come from many sources and is varied for each Airman. Personally, I have aspired to lead in the Air Force to make a difference. As I have advanced to higher leadership positions I have gained motivation, energy and focus of purpose

Default Air Force Logo ORM minimizes risks
Earlier in my career I had the privilege of flying with generals at the highest levels of command. While that provided a view of the Air Force not seen by many, it is not that experience which impressed me. No, what impressed me was just how down to earth many of those gentlemen were and how much they would open up about the big picture. I found
