Commentary by Lt. Col. Cory Damon, 22nd Airlift Squadron A journey of innovation… Over 75 years of heritage and trust
A few weekends ago, I found my father-in-law’s written memoirs of his life, including his time in the Navy in the Pacific during World War II. I had only skimmed his personal history once before in the same type-written, simple-bound folder that represented his humble, kind nature. As I read it again, I realized connections of heritage, trust and innovation between heroes of the past and those serving today. This time, his writing reflected special meaning to me.

When I talk to our airmen in the 821st Contingency Response Group, I constantly emphasize that I want them to “own their mission.”

Commentary by Chief Master Sgt. Jamie Vanoss, 821st Contingency Response Group
Overcome your fear of failure
Merriam-Webster defines the word ‘failure’ as “a lack of success or a falling short.” This is certainly negative in connotation, but I bet at one time or another, each of us has tried something and failed.

Commentary by Chief Master Sgt. Joshua Tidwell, 60th Aerial Port Squadron Why do we stay
As chiefs, most of us love the opportunity to talk candidly with Airmen at professional development events. In my experience, a topic that often comes up in these forums is re-enlistment. Airmen reach out for advice on how to make this decision and what factors I considered when making this choice throughout my career.

Commentary by Lt. Col. Brad Bordes, 60th Medical Support Squadron Don't wait to tell your parents how much they mean to you
Over the past couple of weeks, several of my Airmen have lost a parent or guardian. Regardless of whether the loss of a loved one is expected or unexpected; the pain, sorrow and heartache you experience is real.

Commentary by Lt. Col. Daniel Hosler, 60th Aerial Port Squadron Grow and develop through followership
As the Air Force has gotten progressively smaller in recent years, the process for how we grow and develop our future Air Force leaders has become extremely important. The topic of developing leaders is a frequent discussion point at wings, groups and squadrons across the Air Force. However, one of the key elements of leadership development that is often overlooked is the concept of followership. Strong followership skills are fundamental to leadership.

Commentary by Chief Master Sgt. Justin Helin, 60th Medical Support Squadron Have faith in the system
I still remember a humid October 1993 night in San Antonio when I stepped off the bus and onto Lackland Air Force Base, Texas, where we were “cordially greeted” by Basic Military Training Instructors.

Six years and four months ago I married my husband. I was 19 and completely ignorant to the commitment I just made.

Default Air Force Logo Tips to get your New Year's resolutions back on track
If you are like many people, January 1 marks the day that you and your family planned to begin eating better and to become more physically active. By now though, you may have found that Valentine's Day and the winter doldrums are just a few of the many bumps on the road to a healthier new year.

Chief Master Sgt. April Gaines, 60th Medical Group command chief Military Pride
A couple weeks ago I had the opportunity to attend a Basic Military Training graduation at Joint Base San Antonio - Lackland, Texas. It had been about 20 years since I stepped foot on the BMT parade grounds. I was truly amazed at the pride the military training instructors and their teams displayed during the ceremony as we accepted more than 900 new Airmen into our U.S. Air Force.
