  • Eyes on OPSEC: Keystroke Security

    Pop quiz: how many believe browsing the internet is 100 percent safe and secure? Certain sites, such as those hosted by banks and other financial institutions, have added multiple layers of security in order to maximize the safety of your transactions, but not every website has taken such precautions. Any time you visit one of these sites, your
  • Passover: A celebrated Jewish holiday

    Within the diverse religious and spiritual communities that we live, many questions arise concerning the differences between religious high holy days. Within the Jewish tradition, a high holy day begins on April 8 at sundown, called Passover. What is this Passover holiday some may ask? Passover, or Pesach in Hebrew, is one of the three major
  • Year of Leadership: Everyone is a mentor

    Sometimes it just takes one person to step into someone's life and make a positive change. We may stay in touch with these people years later, even across thousands of miles as life in the Air Force carries us in separate directions. They are friends, they are wingmen and they are mentors. Mentorship is the theme for this month in Air Force Space
  • Women's contributions to armed forces date to colonial period

    Oftentimes, we tend to gloss over or fail to understand the heroic contributions of women in society, the armed forces in particular. This month we celebrate National Women's History Month and take time to highlight and reflect upon the contributions of women to our society and to our great country. We have all learned the lesson of "Rosie the
  • Mentoring—Get Involved!

    What is mentoring and why is it important to the Air Force? According to the Air Force Professional Development Guide, mentoring is a relationship where a person with greater experience and wisdom guides another person to develop both personally and professionally. Ideally, each person will be involved in a variety of mentoring relationships,
  • Mentorship: An honor and a responsibility

    I have the best job in the United States Air Force as the commander of the 50th Network Operations Group. The 50 NOG is 1,500 strong-military, civilians and contractors who operate space and cyberspace networks which enable global combat power. It's an honor to be the commander of such an innovative and proactive team of professionals in the
  • 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
  • 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. We give our very best to ensure the mission is accomplished no matter what the cost. There
  • Caring: The essential ingredient in followership

    Most of us probably agree that the U. S. Air Force is the premier air and space force in the world. 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
  • The Airman's Creed means something today

    The eighth chief master sergeant of the Air Force, retired Chief Master Sgt. Sam Parish, spoke about followership at the Space Innovation and Development Center Feb. 11. A member of the audience asked him what he thought about the Airman's Creed. He said the creed is just words right now, but that we will see it take on a greater significance in

“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
