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.

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.

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.

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.
