Default Air Force Logo We WILL rock you
Last month, our Secretary of Defense, Retired Gen. James “Mad Dog” Mattis, released guidance to all Department of Defense personnel reminding us that we are our nation’s “department of war.”

Chief Master Sgt. David M. Abell, official photo, U.S. Air Force Give 'em hell
In July of this year, I became the command chief master sgt. for the 621st Contingency Response Wing. After five months, I am still in awe of the capabilities, rapid response and resilience of our people. I have had the unique opportunity to watch CRW Airmen at Travis Air Force Base, California, and Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst, N.J., work seamlessly with host wing partners to build capable teams and respond to multiple crises. If this past hurricane season has taught me anything, it is that we are an unstoppable unified team.

Chief Master Sgt. Kimberly L. Reay, official photo, U.S. Air Force Learning from Gen-X, millennials to embrace change
As the holiday season begins and the year comes to a close, it is a good time to review the goals we each set in our personal and professional life. What were we looking to accomplish this year and what can we improve on? Did we take care of ourselves and our family members? What about that Airman that just needed a little extra encouragement to get over a hurdle that might have been holding them back from becoming the person you know they can be?

Col. Jeffrey Pickard, official photo, U.S. Air Force Veterans Day: You got served
Good morning, good afternoon, good day. If you’re reading this and serving our country, have served our country or have served as a member of an Airman’s family, I want to thank you for your service. Your service right now is extremely important for our country’s future.

Default Air Force Logo Great appreciation for veterans past and present
This weekend we observe Veterans Day. It is the perfect opportunity to stop and reflect on the men and women who served in defense of our great nation. In my opinion, our nation’s veterans, as a whole, have accomplished more to bring peace and stability to this world than any other military force or organization. You can look back through our nation’s history and read about the success our military achieved in various wars, conflicts, natural disasters or humanitarian crises. Veterans of our military are nothing short of heroes and we owe them our appreciation.

U.S. Air Force official photo Getting to know the 'Giants'
“If I have seen further than others, it is by standing on the shoulders of giants,” - Isaac Newton. This weekend, on the 11th day of the 11th month, it will have been 99 years since the armistice was signed that led to the end of the “war to end all wars.” Armistice Day was originally designated to honor the veterans of World War I and in 1954, 11 November was redesignated as Veterans Day to honor all veterans of all wars. The men and women who came before us set the standard, provided the example and gave us the shoulders to stand on to make us the Air Force we have today. This Veterans Day, take time to truly honor those giants that served to honor our country and get to know their stories.

Lt. Col. Erik Fisher, official photo, U.S. Air Force Black and yellow represent: commitment, community
Our profession is often paradoxical. We intimidate, yet we inspire. We deliver combat power to oppose our adversaries, yet also deliver hope to those in despair. I experienced such a paradox on a mission this week.

Default Air Force Logo Life is short... Be happy!
I had an opportunity a few weeks back to be a part of an Airman Speed Mentoring forum. While excited about the chance to meet Travis Air Force Base, California, Airmen, I was nervous about the questions I would be asked. I attended and quickly realized I overthought the intent behind the forum.

Lt. Col. Nate Flint, official photo, U.S. Air Force The Airman's responsibility to dissent
I am nearing the end of my 20-year career with the Air Force. As I prepare to walk proudly away from service to my country, I can’t help but spend a few moments reflecting on my years.

Default Air Force Logo Develop your Airmen for the long term
Travis Air Force Base, Calif. – As commanders, we often talk about “developing airmen”. This is usually related to their on-going military career-field training or a formal course of study to get a college degree. However, I suggest that sometimes, developing airmen means guiding them through the maze of options that eventually leads to a long-term career and give them enough experience to make important life choices.
