  • More than a uniform

    I tell a story everywhere I go and let people know who you are and what you are about. I showcase your career field, what organization you belong to and how long you have served. I also proudly display which wars or campaigns you have served in and show off your last name.
  • Ride-share Tips: Advice for riding with strangers

    Sara climbed into the backseat of a sport utility vehicle unaware of what’s happening around her. After a night of drinking at a bar in Vacaville, California, she requested a ride home through Uber. Before entering the vehicle, she failed to confirm who the driver is and whether or not she was entering the right car. She was completely unaware of her surroundings.
  • The case for a bold vision: Our service depends on it

    “This nation should commit itself to achieving the goal, before this decade is out, of landing a man on the moon and returning him safely to the earth.”
  • Bringing technology to today’s Air Force

    “It’s not science fiction, it’s what we do every day” was a recruitment campaign that ran in 2010 for the Air Force. The unfortunate truth to those in uniform was that, in the Air Force, we have, and still have, a technology gap in the way we do business.
  • Don’t fake it ‘til you break it

    “Fake it ‘til you make it.” This is a popular saying I have heard throughout my Air Force career and it honestly scares me sometimes.
  • Set the example

    I arrived at Charleston Air Force Base, South Carolina, in May 1991. I was fresh out of technical school and ready to live in the “real” Air Force. I remember feeling anxious and excited. I didn’t know what to expect.
  • Who cares?

    In 2015, while assigned to a munitions squadron as a brand new first sergeant, I was diligently working in my office on a tasker when a young female Airman knocked at the door and asked, “Shirt, do you have a minute?”
  • What’s it going to be, Airman?

    Working with commanders and first sergeants as it relates to legal affairs, I found three things to be true: they need avenues to help their people be ready, be outstanding, or be out-processing.
  • We are not the bad guys

    A couple days ago, a paralegal told me that a senior noncommissioned officer told her that she tells Airmen only to come to the legal office if they need their deployment checklist signed off. According to this SNCO, nothing good happens at the legal office.
  • How I lead

    In the last 16 years of my career, I came to understand there is no one simple way to lead. I have been blessed to have had situations in my life that have led me to come up with my own version of how to be a better leader. What I am about to share may or may not work for you, but hopefully, you can gain an insight into who I am and how I lead.
