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

Default Air Force Logo Take the radical LEAP
Today in the Air Force we are living in times of uncertainty. It seems as if the operations tempo continues to rise with no end in sight, force shaping, manpower reductions, budget cuts and 365-day TDYs are a reality. During these intense times more than ever, leaders must find opportunities to communicate with subordinates and with each

I’m not sure how often you and your families have moved during your careers, but I have nine times. And I’m sure most of you would agree a great sponsor can make or break your move! My hat goes off to all of you who have been sponsors here. Each week I speak to at the newcomer’s orientation briefing and one of the first questions I ask is “how was

Col. Steve Arquiette, 60th Air Mobility Wing commander, performs the Tinikling, the Philippines’ national dance, with Carrie Basaca, Travis Youth Center school age coordinator, during the Asian Pacific American Heritage Banquet May 30. The Tinikling is a fast rhythmic dance that mimics the movements of the “tikling” birds in the rice fields in their effort to avoid being clipped with the bamboo traps.

Set goals, be the best you can be
Thank you for keeping Safety at the forefront of your activities as we all took time to relax and reflect over this past Memorial Day weekend. Please be sure to not let your guard down throughout the 101 Critical Days of Summer and continue to watch out for your Wingman. As our ops tempo continues to move full speed ahead into the summer and we

Default Air Force Logo Are you ready for change?
Everyday something in our lives changes whether we want it to or not. An important question to ask yourself is how well did you handle it. It isn’t a secret we are about to embark on a major change in our Air Force. Our leaders are still working hard to ensure whatever changes are made will be in the best interest of the Air Force, to include our

It’s that time of year again … the smell of a fresh cooked hot dog in the air, the crack of a bat in the distance, the thundering roar of the crowds overhead. That’s right sports fans; it’s baseball season. Most of us have children who are already playing. Some of us may even be close to the end of the regular season. But as we close in on yet
