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.

Commentary by Col. (Chaplain) Ken Reyes, 60th Air Mobility Wing Chaplain. (Courtesy photo) The sting of regret
I believe in every person’s life there is a moment (maybe more for others) where we have regret. The Oxford dictionary defines ‘regret’ as a feeling or expression of sorrow, repentance or distress over an action or loss. I guess I’m one of those who would fall under the “more” category. Regret can be expressed positively and doesn’t have to be negative, but if each of us were to seek deep within our souls, the context is usually negative.

Lt. Col. Vincent Livie, 60th Air Mobility Wing Safety, shares some thoughts on leadership. (Courtesy Photo) Quotable leadership
I’ve had the pleasure of working for a number of Air Mobility Command’s senior leaders in my career, and I’ve always enjoyed hearing their thoughts on leadership. I noticed that most of them had a way of taking complex ideas and boiling them down to a phrase or concept that everyone could easily embrace and rally behind. Over the years, I’ve collected a few quotes that I thought were particularly great and worth sharing.

A form of diversity that you may not even think of is all around you every day at Travis Air Force Base, California… wildlife diversity. Military bases often host a wide array of local wildlife due to the wide-open federally protected spaces often found on these installations. Military bases tend to make good homes for wildlife because people on military bases seldom come into contact with or harass the wildlife present there.

Default Air Force Logo Take every opportunity
As an 18-year-old basic cadet at the Air Force Academy, I had no idea where my Air Force career would take me. Nine years later, I can say it’s taken me across the world a few times and it looks like I’ll be traveling around the world again before Christmas… twice.
