SCHRIEVER AIR FORCE BASE, Colo. -- To be a military child has many meanings. For me, it means two loving parents who love their jobs, countless relatives telling me stories about their service in different branches and the dreadful road trip to a new home.To start off, I must say I am very proud of my two loving parents who love their jobs-Chief

Maj. Latoya Smith, 50th Comptroller Squadron commander. (Courtesy photo) Blooming
Most of us are familiar with the idiom “bloom where you are planted.” Over the generations, people have attributed bloom where you are planted to the Bible, and while not exactly correct, the idiom does have a connection to the Catholic Church. The Bishop of Geneva, Saint Francis de Sales (1567-1622) is credited with having said the following:

Maj. Uri Mandelbaum, Commander, Detachment 1, 23rd Space Operations Squadron Building a community for unit success: Lesson from the Arctic
A strong wingman culture is critical for unit success. When Airmen are looking out for each other, they can prevent mistakes, find better ways to accomplish the mission and help a fellow Airman when times are difficult.

Shelby Hodges stands for a photo with his son, James, on his last day in uniform after 20 years of service, at McGuire Air Force Base, New Jersey, in 1986. April is designated the month of the Military Child to highlight the daily sacrifices they make while their loved ones are serving. (Courtesy photo) Month of the Military Child: The Air Force I know
From the outside looking in, life in the Air Force can be a mystery. I’ve met many people in my personal and professional life who know nothing about the military, yet they make assumptions. They may make them because of media or movies; I don’t know why, but assumptions are often wrong. The most common assumption I hear is the Air Force is an authoritarian, conservative environment wanting to go to war. That’s not the Air Force I grew up in.

Airman Adrianna Barelas, 3rd Space Operations Squadron Why I wear the uniform
Sometimes we may ask ourselves why is it we wear the uniform. What makes us so different from everyone else? In everyday life, we see people wear uniforms because they are identified as a certain individual. Uniforms tell people not only does that certain individual belong to a certain group, but they have skills other people do not.

Wes Wright) Month of the Military Child: Big thumbs up from Papi
I feel it’s safe to say, in general, most men look up to their dads to some degree. Sure, there are some bad apples here and there but it’s fairly common to esteem one’s father and feel a desire to impress him. For me, that has always been the case. Dad’s validation means a lot. If you’re familiar with Disney’s “Kronk’s New Groove,” you know Kronk (a big, dumb, but well intentioned and loyal guy), spends the whole movie trying to get a “big thumbs up from Papi.”

U.S. Army Col. Michael Rodriguez reads the Oath of Office to his daughter U.S. Air Force 2nd Lt. Scarlett Rodriguez during her commissioning ceremony. Lieutenant Rodriguez had been warning her father for years that he needed to promote to brigadier general before reading her oath, but colonel was acceptable. Month of the Military Child: Step by step
I have always been competing with my father. Let me clarify.
