  • Goals, opportunities and teaming

    A couple of key things I have learned in my 28 years in the Air Force are there is no shortage of opportunities and we are usually most successful in teams than we are alone.
  • Thank you for the feedback

    A few years ago, as a staff sergeant, I thought I was the most experienced member on one particular honor guard detail charged with providing final honors to a retiree.
  • Speak up

    The Air Force Medical Service has been on a long journey toward high reliability. This journey is referred to as ‘Trusted Care.’ Within the medical field, this focus is on patients and patient safety. In order to truly care for our patients, we must keep them safe. One of the tenets of trusted care is the duty to speak up, which applies to more than patients, it can apply to caring for all Airmen.
  • What will you remember?

    I remember my grandfather telling me the same story several times before he died. He served in the U.S. Army Air Corps and was stationed in England for most of his service in World War II. But at the end of the war, when the Allies finally were able to gain a foothold in Europe, he was moved forward to help liberate a continent that had been pummeled by war.
  • The importance of being an energetic leader

    In today’s Air Force, it can often feel like our workloads never diminish and our to-do lists quickly pile up with new and ever-increasing demands. Unforeseen jobs arise that take precedence over the tasks neatly prioritized on your Outlook calendar, often adding stress and uncertainty as they change the trajectory of how you envisioned your day, week or month unfolding. I think it’s accurate to say this type of overload happens to all of us, both in our professional and personal lives, and dealing with it can be challenging.
  • My journey as a military nurse

    What does it mean to be a military nurse? When I first came into the military I did not know that meant.
  • Get to know your Airmen

    What comes to mind when you hear someone say, “You should get to know your Airmen?”
  • Rumble Airman, Rumble

    Muhammad Ali’s trainer, Drew Bundini Brown, said “You gonna float like a butterfly and sting like a bee, aaah (in unison with Ali), Rumble young man, rumble, aaah (in unison, again).” Every time I heard this, I imagined myself saying “aaah,” as if I’m being spoken to as well. I learned this as a young child and it continues to guide me to become the leader I am today.
  • Why OPSEC?

    Operations security is critical to protecting the mission of Travis Air Force Base and our Air Force. The goal of OPSEC is to protect information about friendly operations and reduce the adversary’s ability to collect and exploit critical information and indicators about friendly activities.
  • Show families appreciation now

    As much as I hate to admit it, the other night my wife was right. She said I do not appreciate or understand all of the sacrifices our family makes to support my career. She was absolutely right.
