Matt McGovern) Travis’ command chief bids farewell
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

As usual, the Travis Team has had a busy week. Thank you for continuing to work hard while keeping safety at the forefront of your mind. Command chief farewell Let me be the first to wish farewell and good luck to the 60th AMW Command Chief, Chief Master Sgt.

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

Default Air Force Logo Keep safety, people you work with in mind
The Air Force spends a lot of money annually to make sure that we do our jobs safely with an acceptable amount of risk. Some pessimists would argue that it is not that they care so much for the individual as the bottom dollar. It is cheaper to practice safety than to replace and retrain an individual. The benefit is ours. We are not expected to and

Default Air Force Logo Most overmanned office on base
We’ve all said it, rather complained about it. Hardly a conversation occurs in the workplace where someone doesn’t talk about “doing more with less.” Offices are undermanned … warriors are deployed … yet the mission continues. I often tell people that I’m in the advertising business. My goal is to have people buy my product. What is it I’m selling

If you never take the time to read the Commander’s Corner or base paper, this is the time for you to change. As you can see by the cover, this week’s Tailwind is dedicated to safety. In fact, if you remember one thing, remember that, “Safety is the No. 1 mission!” It is not on time take offs, not completing a job faster than an Air Mobility Command

Default Air Force Logo Chief offers tips to improve leadership
Leadership is a subject addressed in a myriad of venues by professionals at all levels. The results of their work boils the term down into a few simple and concise words, “the ability to influence.” But what or who are we influencing and how can we tell if we are effective? Although all the possible answers are very vague, I would like to offer a
