Capt. Steven Lewis, 50th Operations Group executive officer A recipient of mentorship
I'm as average as you can get. I've never really been unusually good at any sport, I can't sing, I'm relatively shy in large groups and I never got the highest grades in school...even my name blends into the plethora of individuals with the first name "Steve" or last name "Lewis" (25 million if you Google it) -but I'm a recipient of mentorship. It

Default Air Force Logo Airmen connected by fellowship
As Airmen, we share many commonalities. One of the greatest among them is the connection of fellowship. We share the same interest of serving our country and have a common goal - mission success. We don't work just an average eight-hour job to get a paycheck.

Lt. Col. Harold Martin, 50th Operations Support Squadron commander Caring: The essential ingredient in followership

Most probably agree that our people, the team that makes up the U.S. Air Force, and the followership that team exemplifies is the biggest reason we are the best. And, most have heard our leaders state, "Our people are our number one asset." Few of

Lt. Col. Samuel McNiel, 21st Space Operations Squadron commander Followership: Do whatever needs doing
Who hasn't heard, "You can't be a good leader without being a good follower" or "Good leaders create good followers and good followers are good leaders"? Sometimes it's hard to translate those sayings into action. So, let me suggest an actionable definition: Good followership means doing whatever needs doing. I recently read an outstanding new

Lt. Col. Paul Scholl, 50th Mission Support Group deputy commander Followership: the other half of leadership
"Sometimes when you're riding ahead of the herd, you need to turn around and make sure they're still there." It's an old cowboy philosophy, and it holds true regarding any leadership situation. Leaders and followers are the two components required in any leadership situation. One without the other is non-productive at best and dangerous at

Signs posted, "Whites Only" everywhere were a constant reminder of our affliction; segregated schools, buses, lunch counters and drinking
