Commentary by Lt. Col. Curtis Marsh, 60th Air Mobility Wing Dental Squadron. PME and being your own leader
I’m going to take on two topics in this week’s editorial: professional military education and leadership. I know, both full articles by their own merit, but let me try to tie them together from my viewpoint.

Commentary by Senior Master Sgt. Parnel Scalambrino, 60th Air Mobility Wing Dental Squadron Superintendent. Living out your purpose
Early and often, I challenge each person, that I have the distinct honor to influence, with this very thought, “What is your purpose?” This may seem like a deep theological question, but is one that we must challenge ourselves with. Finding purpose can be a lifelong expedition. Remarkably, some people know their purpose at an early age and others have yet to consider the question – and that’s ok. Let me encourage you.

Commentary by Col. (Chaplain) Ken Reyes, 60th Air Mobility Wing Chaplain. (Courtesy photo) The sting of regret
I believe in every person’s life there is a moment (maybe more for others) where we have regret. The Oxford dictionary defines ‘regret’ as a feeling or expression of sorrow, repentance or distress over an action or loss. I guess I’m one of those who would fall under the “more” category. Regret can be expressed positively and doesn’t have to be negative, but if each of us were to seek deep within our souls, the context is usually negative.

Lt. Col. Vincent Livie, 60th Air Mobility Wing Safety, shares some thoughts on leadership. (Courtesy Photo) Quotable leadership
I’ve had the pleasure of working for a number of Air Mobility Command’s senior leaders in my career, and I’ve always enjoyed hearing their thoughts on leadership. I noticed that most of them had a way of taking complex ideas and boiling them down to a phrase or concept that everyone could easily embrace and rally behind. Over the years, I’ve collected a few quotes that I thought were particularly great and worth sharing.

A form of diversity that you may not even think of is all around you every day at Travis Air Force Base, California… wildlife diversity. Military bases often host a wide array of local wildlife due to the wide-open federally protected spaces often found on these installations. Military bases tend to make good homes for wildlife because people on military bases seldom come into contact with or harass the wildlife present there.

Default Air Force Logo Take every opportunity
As an 18-year-old basic cadet at the Air Force Academy, I had no idea where my Air Force career would take me. Nine years later, I can say it’s taken me across the world a few times and it looks like I’ll be traveling around the world again before Christmas… twice.

Default Air Force Logo KC-10 community is family
I was recently handed assignment orders and few things get me feeling more nostalgic than a permanent change of station. This one feels different though, because I’m at the point in my career where it’s entirely possible that after a decade since my first KC-10 Extender sortie, I will have flown my last mission in “Big Sexy.”

Chief Master Sgt. Kevin Shaffer, 821 st Contingency Response Support Squadron, shares some thoughts on leadership. The power of pride and professionalism
Wow! It’s hard to believe two months ago hallmarked my 28th year of faithful service to the U.S. Air Force. Dawning the Air Force uniform every day for that many years kind of makes you think.

Lt. Col. Troy Pierce, 821st Contingency Response Support Squadron, Redefining excellence
Does the Air Force value my contribution? What is my true value? We tend to believe our value is determined by Air Force systems that measure our performance.

Default Air Force Logo Back to school, back to basics
As the new school year gets ready to kick off, I’m beginning to think about what the upcoming year will be like for my kids. When my eldest son started kindergarten a few years ago, I worried the entire summer about how he would handle the transition. Would he like his teacher, make new friends and most importantly, would he enjoy school? All my anxiety was in vain because my son loved his class and was excited about all the new things he experienced on a daily basis.
