  • Colonel says thanks before leaving base

    As my time working for the men and women of the 60th Air Mobility Wing and Team Travis comes to a close, I want to say, “thank you.” I have been honored and humbled to help lead the incredible mission that is Travis Air Force Base while focusing on the priorities of Airmen, Team, Pride and Readiness.
  • Chief's time at Travis rewarding, enjoyable

    As my time working alongside the exceptional Airmen and families of the 60th Air Mobility Wing and Team Travis nears the end, I want to offer my most sincere, “thank you.”  As I think about leaving Team Travis, I am reminded of a quote by Winnie-the-Pooh, “How lucky I am to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard.”  Believe me, I feel lucky to have worked for you the past two years, it has been an incredible journey and by far the most rewarding and enjoyable of my 26 years of service.
  • Choose kindness over fear

    On a Monday afternoon, I stood outside a grocery store with about 40 people. Many of us wore masks; some wore gloves.
  • Manage stress before it manages you

    Stress can be fairly terrifying at times and if not managed properly, it can be overbearing and affect your health.
  • Gyms Closed: Work out anyway

    Fitness centers across the United States have closed their doors due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The fitness center at Travis AFB shut down operations March 15 to help prevent the spread of the virus.
  • African Americans and the Vote

    To commemorate and celebrate the contributions to our nation made by people of African descent, American historian Carter G. Woodson established Black History Week.
  • Reflecting on 2019, Travis AFB ready for a new decade

    Happy New Year! I hope that each and every one of you had an opportunity to rest and recharge over the holiday season, and are ready to hit the ground running in 2020. If it is anything like 2019, it should be a challenging but rewarding year for the 60th Air Mobility Wing.
  • Know your buy-in

    When did you buy in? It is almost cliché discussing “buy-in,” but hear me out. We all have many reasons to serve and if you ask any Airman you will be presented with a variety of answers. Sometimes it comes in a single moment, ranging from the moment you march down the bomb run at Joint Base San Antonio-Lackland, Texas, or the moment you are presented with your first set of master sergeant stripes. I found that it was more of a realization, than a “gotcha” moment, of how we fit into the mission.
  • Lessons learned, lessons shared

    Throughout our careers and lives, we all have instrumental moments where lessons are learned that ultimately shape and develop us as Airmen and people. I’d like to share some of the moments that I have had and the lessons I learned which have influenced and developed me both personally and professionally.
  • Opportunity doesn’t call ahead, make sure you have a plan

    When opportunity knocks, it usually doesn’t call ahead of time to schedule an appointment. At least it never did for me.
