Col. Rachel Hight, 60th Surgical Operations Squadron commander, shares some insight on maintaining a positive vision and how beneficial that can be. (U.S. Air Force photo) Trying to be happy: One way to bolster resilience
For many of us, a huge crisis or emergency can be handled expertly, but the “death by a thousand paper cuts” every day is what really takes a toll.

Commentary by Chief Master Sgt. Erika Scofield, 60th Mission Support Group Leadership lessons can come in all forms
Recently, I lost my best friend of almost eight years. Her loss was extremely hard on me for many reasons – the first being she was the first loss I had suffered as an adult. Second, she was my best friend. She was my sidekick; we did everything together. She had been there with me through it all: a divorce, a marriage, four permanent changes of station to include overseas, two promotions, good times and bad…and just like that she was gone. Bella was my dog.

Commentary by Col. Lance Clark, 60th Mission Support Group Time flies
Time flies. I’m not a fan of clichés, but this one continues to prove itself true (especially now as I’m still trying to figure out where April, May and June went.) In the military community, we experience this reality more than others, as the annual migration of moving trucks appearing in our neighborhoods reminds us every Permanent Change of Station season.

Default Air Force Logo Find your balance
When I first found out about writing this article I figured I’d write about something I’ve been trying to achieve for some time and people talk about often: Work life balance.

Default Air Force Logo Revitalize the squadron now
Just under a year ago, Gen. David Goldfein was confirmed as our Air Force’s 21st Chief of Staff. Just days after his confirmation Goldfein published his first of three short papers titled “The Beating Heart of the Air Force…Squadrons!”

Default Air Force Logo Proud of who I am, proud to serve
My life has changed significantly both in the military and as a civilian since the repeal of “Don’t ask, don’t tell,” which was the military’s ban on gays and lesbians serving openly.

Default Air Force Logo Balance: A key aspect of personal resilience
The way I look at resiliency today is very different than when I joined the Air Force just a few years ago. The emphasis was just not put on it like it is today. Not because previous Air Force leaders didn’t care about the subject, rather, I feel we as a force didn't fully understand the importance of having or building it.

Default Air Force Logo Increase unit effectiveness by connecting with people
There are huge responsibilities levied upon leaders in our profession; accomplish the mission, uphold good order and discipline and take care of our people. Some expectations are easily quantifiable, like mission accomplishment (measured by on-time rates, aircraft generation data, etc.) and good order and discipline (assessed through status of discipline meetings, number of Uniformed Code of Military Justice or legal infractions). It is more difficult to judge how well we take care of our people. The failing isn’t the lack of a metric, rather not fully recognizing (or remembering) that taking care of people is directly related to mission accomplishment.

“Hey John, when you get back from C-17 re-qual you’ll be on G-series orders. The squadron is yours!”

Senior Master Sgt. Ricky Smith, 921st Contingency Response Squadron, shares some thoughts on Airmen development and change. (U.S. Air Force Courtesy Photo) Growth requires a little discomfort
A long time ago at a base far far away, my chief used to send out daily quotes and excerpts from John C. Maxwell and other famous leadership authors. One day the daily message really resonated with me. Specifically, the message quoted Ronald E. Osborne: "Unless you do something beyond what you've already mastered, you will never grow."
