Commentary by Chief Master Sgt. Jason Morehouse, 60th Maintenance Squadron Change is the only dependable constant in life
How many times have you heard the statement "the Air Force isn't what it used to be" or "this isn't the Air Force I joined?" Stop, take a step back for a minute and look around. What has changed?  What is different?  How did the Air Force get to where it is today?  I ask that as you read on, you reflect and identify things that have changed.We live

Lt. Col. Fencisco Harris, 60th Maintenance Squadron commander Spur Airmen to develop their knowledge
Gen. Mark Welsh III, Chief of staff of the U.S. Air Force, said we all have a story to tell. Here is mine.January 15, 1997, is a day I will never forget.  I remember the solemn 2 a.m. bus ride to Lackland Air Force Base, Texas, and the "greeting" provided by the Military Training Instructors. Upon being yelled off the bus, I honed my skills at

What will your legacy be?  When you sit back and ask yourself this simple, but pointed question, I hope it brings about a moment of self-reflection and spurs you to action. As a parent, I hope my legacy is that of teaching my daughters the importance of being honest, caring and compassionate members of our society.  I want them to respect others

Col. Rhett Champagne, 821st Contingency Response Group commander Surrendering control can empower Airmen
A few years ago, my daughter told me she wanted to paint her room. In truth, it needed a bit of touch up as she had marked it up, changing the layout of her room every few months since we moved there. However, on that particular day, I already had a list of things I needed to do around the house and painting a room was not on it. During the next

Commentary by Lt. Col. Peter Abercrombie II, 60th Aerial Port Squadron   Remember why you serve for motivation
The pace of the Air Force doesn't stop. An analogy the 60th Maintenance Group commander, Col. Earl Scott, uses is that the mission comes at us like ocean waves.  Once you get past one wave, there is another wave coming at you.  We go from staff sergeant enlisted performance report closeout to a major base exercise to multiple inspections to Airmen
