Col. John Klein, official photo, U.S. Air Force Turn your glove over
“Turn your glove over.” I was tired. And slightly annoyed. For what seemed like the thousandth time, my dad threw the baseball to me as I practiced for the spring season my sixth grade year. My legs ached from squatting into the catcher’s position over and over again. My body dragged from jumping up constantly.

Chief Master Sgt. Reny Nunag, official photo, U.S. Air Force Leadership is like keeping a promise
What an honor it is to serve in today’s Air Force. While writing does not always come easily for me, when given the opportunity, you can bet I’ll chomp at the bit. I would like to take a moment to share my recipe for success, a concept I passed along to our future leaders at Airmen Leadership School. It basically comes down to one word: Promise.

Senior Master Sgt. Patrick A. Odom, Jr., official photo, U.S. Air Force CAF check yourself before you wreck yourself
In today’s Air Force and specifically the 60th Air Mobility Wing, we are continually proving there are no bounds. Therefore, Comprehensive Airman Fitness is vital for every collective Airman whether military, civilian or a family member. CAF is defined in Air Force Instruction 90-506, Comprehensive Airman Fitness, as “A holistic approach to fitness that includes the mental, physical, social and spiritual domains.” It’s important that we understand the holistic approach of CAF and our need to be fit in each domain to ensure we’re able to be balanced and resilient Airmen.

Chief Master Sgt. David M. Abell, official photo, U.S. Air Force Give 'em hell
In July of this year, I became the command chief master sgt. for the 621st Contingency Response Wing. After five months, I am still in awe of the capabilities, rapid response and resilience of our people. I have had the unique opportunity to watch CRW Airmen at Travis Air Force Base, California, and Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst, N.J., work seamlessly with host wing partners to build capable teams and respond to multiple crises. If this past hurricane season has taught me anything, it is that we are an unstoppable unified team.

Col. Jeffrey Pickard, official photo, U.S. Air Force Veterans Day: You got served
Good morning, good afternoon, good day. If you’re reading this and serving our country, have served our country or have served as a member of an Airman’s family, I want to thank you for your service. Your service right now is extremely important for our country’s future.

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 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.
