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.

Last month, our Secretary of Defense, Retired Gen. James “Mad Dog” Mattis, released guidance to all Department of Defense personnel reminding us that we are our nation’s “department of war.”

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.

Lt. Col. Erik Fisher, official photo, U.S. Air Force Black and yellow represent: commitment, community
Our profession is often paradoxical. We intimidate, yet we inspire. We deliver combat power to oppose our adversaries, yet also deliver hope to those in despair. I experienced such a paradox on a mission this week.

Lt. Col. Nate Flint, official photo, U.S. Air Force The Airman's responsibility to dissent
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.

Official photo, Chief Master Sgt. Margie P. Quicanopalacios It's not about me
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.

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.

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.
