Lt. Col. Matthew Jones, 22nd Airlift Squadron Commander Telling quote illustrates nature of service
The last step any copilot takes before being upgraded to aircraft commander is completing their certification board.  This board is a formal process where the squadron's functional leadership imparts their best advice as the soon-to-be aircraft commander listens attentively.  Every time we 'cert' a new aircraft commander, my Director of Operations

Commentary by Chief Master. Sgt, John Steggell 22nd Airlift Squadron   Challenging experiences develop character, strength and confidence
"Do not pray for easy lives.  Pray to be stronger men," said John F. Kennedy. Challenging experiences present an opportunity and an occasion for personal and professional growth.  When faced with these, will we let them defeat us?  Will we decline the challenge?  Or, will we seek them out and accept them, overcome them and, therefore, become

Commentary by Master Sgt. Mark Jones, 21st Airlift Squadron Servant leadership makes direct impact on Airmen
As leaders, we teach what we know but we impart who we are. Reflecting on my Air Force career to date, I cannot help but first acknowledge that I am a sum of those who have mentored and challenged me. Though my former supervisors are as varied in personality and background as the Airmen they've led, one common theme ties them all together.  Robert

Default Air Force Logo Find strength to 'Airman up, Airman through'

Commentary by Chief Master Sgt. Philip Hudson, 621st Contingency Response Wing Message to CRW's Devil Raiders: Give 'em hell
I am impressed.  Since joining the 621st Contingency Response Wing two months ago, I have met some of the most amazing Airmen I have encountered in 23 years of service. The Airmen of our wing continuously exemplify the highest levels of readiness and expertise.  While you make it look easy, I know it is not. After serving in expeditionary units

How will the Air Force utilize the contingency response mission in the future? What capabilities will be required to execute that mission? What are the future conditions we will be required to operate under?These questions -- and many more -- were at the heart of a recent Contingency Response Commanders Conference hosted by the 621st CRW at Joint

Default Air Force Logo Giving everyone trophies diminishes their value
I grew up being conditioned that we live in a competitive world.If you want to succeed at something, you have to work at it by devoting time, effort and energy to make people take notice. Some people may be more talented than you, but that is beyond your control. Like most people around my age, 44, I have noticed a change in expectations over the

Commentary by Col. Rawson Wood, 60th Medical Group Commander Excellence in all we do is key
I want to talk about how our Air Force Core value of "excellence in all we do" is applied to ongoing change at David Grant USAF Medical Center.I believe all Airmen, and indeed all Americans, want to be excellent, but are sometimes unsure what level of excellence is required for the day's mission.If it is a Physical Training test, then an excellent

Default Air Force Logo What's gained in professional military education?
Why do professional military education?  Martin Luther King Jr. once wrote, "The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. We must remember that intelligence is not enough. Intelligence plus character - that is the goal of true education." Part of the Air Force culture is to continue our education and

Default Air Force Logo Four elements of leadership apply to all Airmen
In January I entered my 30th calendar year of service, and it is really tough to think back on all of the great experiences, the journey, and how I have come to where I am at today.  One of those experiences, that didn't feel so good at the time, involved one of my last physical appearances before a Squadron Awards board over twenty years
