Col. Theresa E Weems, 60th Operations Group commander, official photo Through the eyes of our veterans
Recently, I had the good fortune to share a meal with a gentleman who had been a prisoner of war as a child during World War II, and went on to serve as an Airman here at Travis Air Force Base. Soon after this meeting, Ken Burn’s latest documentary, Vietnam, was released telling the story of that long, controversial war amidst the backdrop of the great societal changes and civil unrest our country experienced on the home front.

Chief Master Sgt. David Iglesias 60th Operations Support Squadron Official Photo Strive for perfection, settle for excellence
To err is human, as we are not inherently perfect. Nevertheless, if we chase perfection, excellence is a probable outcome. To pursue perfection, we must elevate risk to the appropriate level, proactively avoid complacency and learn from honest mistakes. We must strive for perfection—cognizant it’s not possible—and settle for excellence.

Default Air Force Logo A simple thank you goes a long way
In today’s instant gratification world, we are easily disgruntled if something doesn’t happen immediately. Because we are used to our cell phones and social media, we have become less and less inclined to deal with the human element of the mission.

Default Air Force Logo Are you ready?
Growing up in the Midwest, I loved to play sports. In fact, there wasn’t a sport I wasn’t fond of. However, the sport I loved most and was best at, was football. In middle school, I was on the field the majority of the game because of my boundless, natural gifts and abilities. Oh, and the fact we simply didn’t have a lot of players to choose from.

Chief Master Sgt. Leslie Gould, 60th Communications Squadron superintendent, Official photo Embrace diversity
Since my first days at Basic Military Training, I have marveled at the Air Force’s ability to bring people together from such diverse backgrounds to accomplish a common goal. Our first goal was simple: to effectively march in unison as a flight. That was possible not only because we shared one goal, but because we recognized our diversity, embraced it and used it as a strength. It did not matter from where someone had come. As a team, we quickly realized those who excelled and utilized them to coach others in order to benefit the flight. The practice of appointing our best repeated itself throughout the balance of our training whether it was for dormitory inspections, expeditionary skills or on the drill pad.

Lt. Col. Thomas Stady, 60th Communication Squadron Commander, official photo. Find the awesome
We all should take moments here and there to reflect on what we do and what other Airmen do each day. Sometimes this is difficult as we all try and slay the alligators closest to the boat—the next mission, the next staff meeting, the next task, the next training event, the next shift, the next patient or even just the next weekend or vacation. As I speed past my first year at Travis, I find it difficult to capture all the awesome things we are doing as a squadron, as a wing and as Team Travis, not because there is no awesomeness, but just the opposite. There is an abundance of awesomeness happening across the base every day. Team Travis Airmen, which includes our civil service civilians, are the professional, educated, motivated, innovative and dedicated Airmen this Air Force needs to take us into the next 70 years and beyond.

Senior Airman Shelby Horn poses for a portrait with her daughter Sadie Commentary: 3lbs, 11oz of Resiliency
In 2016 my husband and I found out I was pregnant with our second child and we were ecstatic. We had just bought our first home and the age gap between our first and second child would be three years, our "ideal" age gap. It was another girl, which is exactly what we were hoping for. We decided to name her Sadie Jean, after my husband's grandma. We were so excited for her to complete our family. We anxiously awaited her arrival, which was estimated as December 29, 2016. But we were in for a surprise.

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.
