  • Why I wear the uniform

    Nick Vujicic once said “The greatest rewards come when you give of yourself. It’s about bettering the lives of others, being part of something bigger than yourself, and making a positive difference.” When I first signed my name on the dotted line, the reasons as to why I wanted to be a part of the military were the same as anyone else.
  • Take advantage of Breckenridge, other ITT opportunities

    As Airmen, we have the opportunity to be based anywhere from the deep south to the northern reaches of Alaska, small atolls in the middle of the Pacific Ocean and to the leafy English countryside. With such a plethora of locations, it’s easy to forget how breathtaking Colorado is, and how lucky we are to live here.
  • Why I wear the uniform

    I could have chosen to do anything with my life. I could have worn a suit and tie, construction hat, lab coat, or even a fire suit. Why did I volunteer to give up my civilian life so I can make less money and work longer hours than my peers?
  • My path to becoming a Schriever RTA

    When one hears the word ‘resiliency,’ the mind may drift to its definition - ‘the capacity to recover quickly from difficulties.’
  • Reflecting on my Air Force family

    As I go through the holiday season, I’ve been reflecting back on this year. What comes to the forefront is the idea of being thankful.
  • Honoring with dignity

    The High Frontier honor guard that provides detail services to Schriever and Peterson Air Force Base, is unique. It is unique in the sense it is comprised of members from Air Force bases within the front range including Schriever, Cheyenne Mountain and Peterson AFB. The rotation for a ceremonial guardsman is six months in active service, followed by six months of stand-by duty.
  • Space Airman enables launch

    In space and cyberspace operations, consistently getting to the right answer is not easy.
  • Intrusive leadership

    If I were to tell you to go to your work center and be an intrusive leader, what image does that put in your head?
  • Why I wear the uniform

    There are many reasons I put on my uniform every morning, just like every other Airman by my side. I love the educational and medical benefits, but they are not my sole purpose for being in these boots, standing and serving under oath.
  • The price of vision

    I believe we’ve all come across those people who seem to have a little more vision than the rest of us.

“Service members, past and present, remember the enduring legacy of those intrepid patriots who fought during 1775-1783 for independence, and they recall the many times when later Americans have been called to preserve that independence in the face threats from enemies abroad. By wearing the uniform, they declare themselves ready to oppose any foe who would impose tyranny on them and their nation.” -- Rick Sturdevant, deputy director of history with headquarters Air Force Space Command

Many of you know that #TeamworkMakesTheDreamWork, but did you know our firefighters live by this phrase? Falcon and Schriever FD's came together to better themselves as a unit for future endeavors, how's that for teamwork? “We’ve had mutual aid agreements for many years, and we’ve done some building familiarization, but haven’t trained together very often. This was just a great opportunity and I hope we get to come out here more in the future.” -Jeff Petersma, deputy chief with the Flacon FD
