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.

Official photo, Chief Master Sgt. Margie P. Quicanopalacios It's not about me
I was raised in Lima, Peru in a household where food was scarce, I shared a bed with three siblings and my grandmother and the clothes were hand-me-downs. I learned to appreciate my family and the little things. Although migrating to America at the age of 10 was one of the smartest moves my family made for me, the culture acclimation felt overwhelming, especially when most of my classmates only spoke English.

Lt. Col. Erwin Gines, U.S. Air Force, official photo Searching for Private First Class Roberto L. Lopez
This is a brief and microscopic view of another person’s service. When I started military service in 1993, I was given an artifact with a story behind it. It was a Silver Star in an old, worn case. The story came from his relatives who said it belonged to an uncle, Roberto L. Lopez. The name was written on the back of the medal. They told me he served as a medic in World War II and died in battle somewhere in Europe. I knew of other stories of Filipino veterans in World War II but this was the first I had heard of one in Europe. The fact that he was a medic interested me more since I was one too.

There are many roads that lead to our service in the Air Force. Some of them selfish, some of them selfless. Whether you joined for college education assistance or to defend our country, we all wear the same uniform and chose to serve on this great Air Force base.
