Lt. Col. Blaine Baker, 82st Contingency Response Squadron commander, shares his thoughts on leading and empowering Airmen. (U.S. Air Force photo) To win, we must be tough, disciplined
With resource readiness trending to the positive, what about restoring personal readiness? Have any of us really considered what personal attributes we will need to win any fight in any environment? Have you ever asked yourself if you are truly prepared to forward deploy in the harshest of conditions against a major adversary who will contest your every move and challenge your will to win?

Default Air Force Logo Travis Toastmasters aids readiness
I started attending Toastmasters meetings when I first arrived at Travis Air Force Base, California, a year and a half ago to improve my public speaking skills and get involved with other members of the base. When I first started Toastmasters, I felt the usual jitters every time I was asked to speak in front of people. I was asked to brief a group of commanders on base about my unit's mission and could hear my voice shaking and feel my face turning red throughout the short speech.

Col. Charles R. Henderson, official photo, U.S. Air Force Ready for this jelly
This week kicked off the 75th anniversary celebration of the establishment of Travis Air Force Base. Looking back 75 years, specifically on this day, February 9, 1943, the Battle of Guadalcanal had been won and the Allies claimed their victory. When the U.S. Marines landed on the island in 1942, they commenced the first major Allied offensive against Japanese-held positions in the Pacific. Were those Marines ready?

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. Steve Nichols, official photo, U.S. Air Force Be ready for future challenges
Since I came to Travis in July 2016, I have seen our team accomplish so many good things. Whether it’s a massive undertaking like the airshow, the Unit Effectiveness Inspection Capstone or supporting relief efforts for four natural disasters in less than a month, we have always answered the call. I have seen you all pushed to the limits and come out the other end with a smile on your face and pride in your heart. Make no mistake, your command chief is proud of you.
