Col. Justin Niederer, official photo, U.S. Air Force Wingmen: critical to mission success and a resilient Air Force
There are two definitions for the term “wingman” offered by Dictionary.com. The first is “a pilot whose aircraft is positioned behind and outside the leading aircraft in a formation.” The second is “a (person) who helps or supports another (person); a friend”.

Chief Master Sgt. Jamie Vanoss, 821st Contingency Response Group superintendent. Lessons learned in a 26-year career
As I close out my career in the service of our nation, I find myself reflecting on the past 26 years, often reflecting on the things that aided my success. While not all inclusive, I hope you gain something from my lessons learned.

Chief Master Sgt. Ricky Smith, official photo, U.S. Air Force Did you learn anything?
Some of my best memories growing up came from spending time on my grandparent’s farm in rural Indiana. In my eyes, my grandfather was the smartest guy on the planet. He could always explain how things worked and had the capability to fix or build anything. As a boy, whatever my grandfather was working on, I wanted to be there next to him doing the same thing

Default Air Force Logo Be a glue person
A person can make an impact in an organization regardless of their position. Satisfaction and happiness do not have to originate from the top of an organization. I also believe that one person, regardless of their position, can start a ripple effect of happiness throughout the organization. Little changes often lead to big and permanent changes. So how does one make the change to choose happiness at work? There are a couple of steps I have learned over my 32 years of military service.

Lt. Col. Erik Fisher, official photo, U.S. Air Force Innovation: our calling and imperative
“Our industry does not respect tradition—it only respects innovation.” Satya Nadella spoke after assuming the role as chief executive at Microsoft. Arguably, similar sentiments could be said of our U.S. Air Force. Seven decades ago, visionary innovators established our service as a separate, but equal, solution to the problems of the third and fourth dimensions of time and space. Since that day, the Air Force has demanded creativity, open-mindedness and calculated risk-taking.

Default Air Force Logo Attitude is everything
Let’s face it; every one of us has had a miserable day at some point. It is inevitable that there will be days in our lives where, by lunchtime, we just want to be left alone. The way we keep from running home and crawling back into bed is by developing a resilient, optimistic outlook. It sounds easy for people who think that if you just smile and have happy thoughts, people will assume you have a positive attitude. However, the truth is that a positive attitude is all about control.

Col. Charles R. Henderson, official photo, U.S. Air Force Ready for this jelly
This week kicked off the 75th anniversary celebration of the establishment of Travis Air Force Base. Looking back 75 years, specifically on this day, February 9, 1943, the Battle of Guadalcanal had been won and the Allies claimed their victory. When the U.S. Marines landed on the island in 1942, they commenced the first major Allied offensive against Japanese-held positions in the Pacific. Were those Marines ready?

Chief Master Sgt. Laura Nepute, official photo, U.S. Air Force Doing enough
With my military career winding down, I routinely ask myself if I’ve done enough. To be honest, I am not sure. However, I am confident in my choices to maximize the opportunities presented before me. As this will be my last commentary submission, I will use it to ask you, “Have you seized or squandered life’s opportunities?”

Lt. Col. Travis M. Rowley, official photo, U.S. Air Force This is our time
When standing in harm's way, do you want to be partially, mostly or fully ready to respond? Every day our friends, family and team of Airmen rely on us to be the best version of ourselves. Ask yourself if you have done everything you need to do for the person standing next to you or for your wingman?

We are fiercely underway in 2018 as Travis Air Force Base, California, continues to remain engaged throughout the world, and our people continue to impress. January is championship season as we rally around our favorite sports teams and look forward to the Winter Olympics.
