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.

Maj. Nathan Markley, 21st Space Operations Squadrons, Detachment 1 commander Drink It In
In 2011, I had the opportunity to go to MacDill Air Force Base in Tampa, Florida, and work for U.S. Central Command in Information Operations. Of course, right after I got there, a tough looking Marine lieutenant colonel walked into our J3 office and asked if I wanted to go to Afghanistan. My initial thought was about my nice, king-sized bed at the Marriott, but looking at this guy I knew there was no way I could turn him down.

Family, Parenting, Mentoring, Caring
Recently, my wife, Kris, and I were blessed with our first grandchild. I’ll tell you, this was a defining moment for me that flat out struck me like a lightning bolt, especially when I held him for the first time and he fell asleep laying on my “beer” belly. The joy was truly incredible. But the moment stood out for me as I have many times recently thought about my childhood, growing up with my mom, dad and siblings, raising my two sons, now one grandson and a soon to be granddaughter next month. As a military child, I remember I was raised in a loving family where my mom and dad did their best teaching me the facts of life, preparing me for my life on my own, disciplining me, mentoring me, coaching me, etc. I also have been thinking on the times when Kris and I were raising our sons, moving from base to base and the joy we had in helping them through some of the tough times in their lives, at least they thought they were tough. Helping them through the morass, the pain, the disappointments, the successes and the triumphs was all worth it to me. Now we get to do it again, sort of, with our grandchildren but more as background players than the everyday participants. The fun part is spoiling them and then sending them home.

Reflecting on lyrical basic truths
April in Colorado came with an ambush of snow days balanced by bright sunny spring days. As I sat down to consider what to write about for this column, watching the snow fall quietly, I found myself wondering when I might next need my suntan lotion. And speaking of suntan lotion, my mind immediately went to one of the tunes I use to cooldown after a good workout; “Everyone’s Free (to wear sunscreen)” by Baz Luhrmann. It’s just a little tune constructed of basic life truths, and one that always makes me take a few moments for self-refection on the lyrical basic truths woven into the melody. Basic truths. We know them when we see them, usually heed them, and generally regret when we don’t take the sage advice they offer.

Default Air Force Logo Chief's Corner - week of May 5
Can-do attitudeWhat is a "can-do" attitude?  Merriam-Webster defines it as, "having or showing an ability to do difficult things."  The common understanding of a can-do attitude is just being positive and willing to try.I personally put a different slant on it.  To me, a can-do attitude is focusing on the things you can do versus the things you

Relationships lead to success
"Leadership is the art of getting someone else to do something you want done because he wants to do it," said President Dwight D. Eisenhower.We, as human beings, have and use interpersonal relationships in all facets of our lives, with our family, friends and co-workers.  Our daily lives are dictated by the dynamics and quality of these

Lt. Col. John "Nate" Harris, 50th Mission Support Group deputy commander Think like a child
April was the month of the military child and it served as a time to reflect upon and recognize the sacrifices our children make because of our chosen profession.  Given the frequency of Permanent Change of Station moves, new schools and friends, or missed events due to deployments or mission demands, we are always teaching our children to be
