Master Sgt. Joseph Hardy, 50th Network Operations Group First Sergeant (Courtesy photo) You can’t give what you don’t have
Recently, one of our great 50th Space Wing chaplains asked the Schriever first sergeants if we would like to attend a class on combatting compassion fatigue. Compassion fatigue is a very real issue that often affects first responders, counselors and other caregivers. These people spend so much time with other people’s problems, they eventually “run out” of compassion, or put simply, become jaded. I believe variations of this can happen to leaders at all levels from frontline supervisors to commanders.

Are your contracting requirements execution ready? Are your contracting requirements execution ready?
It’s hard to believe six months have already passed since my last commentary, where I discussed the successful end of fiscal 2016 enjoyed by the 50th Space Wing as a result of the hard work and partnerships built between 50th Contracting Squadron, 50th Comptroller Squadron, 50th Civil Engineer Squadron and our mission partners.

Successful empowerment requires positive communication
I firmly believe in encouraging decision-making at the lowest possible leadership level: this allows our organizations to stay fluid and agile to defeat a broad spectrum of challenges in a transient environment. Leaders at the lowest levels are typically the first to observe and orient to a situation: an Airman may be struggling to cope with the loss of a sister or an adversary may develop an advanced new capability to threaten our missions. With proper commander’s intent, training and most importantly empowerment, these leaders can quickly decide on courses of action and execute plans to respond to issues, such as a supervisor may counsel a grieving member or a tactician may save billions of dollars of Air Force space hardware.

Senior Master Sgt. Allen Le Vie, 50th Operations Group first sergeant It's okay to ask

The power of words
At the last Schriever Update, Chaplain (Maj.) Martin Adamson, 50th Space Wing Chapel office, shared an inspirational Presidents’ Day tribute. Indeed, several former U.S. Presidents have delivered powerful speeches with memorable lines that have endured the test of time.  Consider these classics: - “Fourscore and seven years ago…” - “The only thing

Why I wear the uniform
Uniforms have had a significant meaning to me ever since I was a kid. The members in uniform were always the people I looked up to and looked for when I needed guidance. Growing up in a small town with service members everywhere, I always felt safer.  I never actually knew what they did, nor who they were, but I trusted them, mostly because of the

Focus on the details
As military professionals, we live in a world where details matter more than most places. To us, details are the difference between success and failure, victory and defeat, life and death.
