Default Air Force Logo Sit down, be humble
If I asked you to give me a list of words describing qualities you admire in a leader, what would be on it? Perhaps honest, selfless, competent, dedicated, courageous, charismatic or empathetic easily make the list. What about humble? A word synonymous with others like meek, submissive, modest or undistinguished couldn’t possibly be on your list of top leadership qualities.

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.

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.

Default Air Force Logo We WILL rock you
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.”

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.

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.
