Lt. Col. Chris Todd, 3rd Space Operations Squadron commander Kepler was never “read in” to anything
As I leave the 50th Space Wing, I would like to pass on some parting words regarding the future of space operator training.

What do you value?
As someone who has been around the Air Force for a while, I’m occasionally asked questions that sound something like this: “What’s important to you?” “How do you know if you’re doing it right?” “What was key to your success?” All valid questions; and I think it all really translates to “what do you value?” After all, isn’t it our values that tell us whether we’re near or far from how we wish to act, who we want to be or how we want to be treated?

Maj. Christopher Butler, 21st Space Operations Squadron Detachment 2 commander
More than just a profession
As an Airman have you ever wondered what it means to be part of the "Profession of Arms”? There is a broad spectrum of professionals in the world from talented athletes to esteemed medical doctors, but none like those who belong to the honored Profession of Arms.

The Green Dot program was developed as part of the Air Force Sexual Assault Prevention Strategy in 2015, which outlined the change components: 1) an overview talk, 2) a four hour (voluntary) workshop for interested Airmen, 3) leadership education and training, and 4) one-time action events (two-three per year). (U.S. Air Force photo illustration/James Hodges) Change starts with me
Usually when we hear about training, it comes with the occasional eye roll, joke or meme. We all understand the necessity of training, but that doesn’t mean we have to like it. Last week, I went to a training called Green Dot overview talk. I have seen the “Green Dot” all over base, but did not know what it was about when I first got here. For this reason, I was actually looking forward to the training.

Al King at the Bruce McCandless Colorado State Veterans Home in Florence, Colorado, Friday, June 3, 2016.

On Friday, June 3, 2016, the 11th Space Warning Squadron volunteered at the Bruce McCandless Colorado State Veterans Home. During the day, we escorted residents from the indoor facility to the outdoor patio, where members of the Army National Guard band performed. Many of the residents are wheelchair bound due to their age and/or medical condition, but that did not stop them from enjoying the entertainment. One of the residents, Air Force veteran retired Master Sgt. Al King, shared some stories from his fulfilling and eventful career. Knowing that our time was limited with him, we decided to interview him and see what advice he had for the future Airmen.

Default Air Force Logo Chief’s Corner – Week of June 9
Are you a technical sergeant, or do you supervise one? As a reminder, the last technical sergeant static closeout date was Nov. 30, 2015. That means we have reached the halfway point, approximately six months, into the technical sergeant reporting period. Members should receive their Airmen Comprehensive Assessment Feedbacks soon.

What are the answers to these superhero trivia? Who is the “Caped Crusader?” The one and only Batman. Who is “faster than a speeding bullet, more powerful than a locomotive, able to leap tall buildings in a single bound?” Superman, of course.

Col. Dennis Bythewood, 50th Operations Group commander Our job is to prepare for conflict
General Hyten’s recent Commander’s Strategic Intent states two facts that are critical for us, as 50th Space Wing Airmen, to understand. To paraphrase, he states 1) that any capability that cannot survive when facing the threats of today and the future is worthless in combat. 2) While we operate some of the most sophisticated machines our nation has produced, it is our Airmen--not machines--who deliver the combat effects that enable the Air Force to execute our mission in support of Combatant Commanders. Our job is to prepare for conflict.

Military tuition assistance is an excellent benefit afforded to military members, both officer and enlisted.
