Chief Master Sgt. John Overturf, official photo, U.S. Air Force Unbowed, unbent, unbroken
Full spectrum readiness has been a priority among our Air Force leaders and has translated into countless exercises, numerous training hours in mission-oriented protective posture gear, and realistic scenarios to ensure we are able to respond to any threat anywhere in the world. But what does this really mean if we personally are not at our best? While it is extremely important to be proficient in those skills, if we are not mentally strong and ready, we will never reach the level of readiness we need to be at.

Default Air Force Logo Military children serve alongside parents
Being in mission oriented protective posture gear “sucking rubber” may not be the best part of your military career—or maybe it is. But try doing a post-attack reconnaissance sweep with a child tagging along with you.

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 Leaders need resiliency too
For supervisors at every level, it is easy to live vicariously through our subordinates. Let me give a brief example. Within the last year, my superintendent and I had to deal with a disciplinary situation within the unit. How did we both react to the challenge?

Master Sgt. Khafiz Gondry, official photo, U.S. Air Force Finding my voice as a quiet leader in a not-so-quiet world
I have always been quiet and awkward around people which is oftentimes viewed as a negative attribute and is something I have struggled with throughout my 19-year Air Force career. Since I don’t always have much to say out loud, I have endured the common comments and questions about my quietness from peers, supervisors, first sergeants and chiefs alike.

Lt. Col. Claudio Covacci, official photo, U.S. Air Force No Airman achieves alone: Reflecting on two years as the commander of the 60th MXS
As I count my many blessings while serving at Travis Air Force Base, California, I often reflect on the words of Col. John Klein, 60th Air Mobility Wing commander: “No Airman achieves alone.”

Default Air Force Logo Technology helps overcome deployment challenges
Military life is not easy. The men and women who serve in our armed forces protect our freedoms and way of life. They make tremendous sacrifices along with their families in service to our country. Service members often have to endure times of separation from their loved ones, from a few days to a year. While the military member is away, the family is left to go on facing each day without their mother or father present. This can make military spouses often feel like single moms or dads.

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.
