  • Caring for our children

    One of the most important decisions you make as a parent is selecting quality care for your children. As a father of seven, I know it’s easy to lose focus at work when you are worried about the health and well-being of your kiddos. As such, the 50th Mission Support Group takes great pride in delivering quality, affordable and readily available child care services so you are able to concentrate on the mission at hand.
  • Strengthening families

    As I approach the tail end of a one-year remote tour on a small island in the middle of the Indian Ocean, I have been contemplating the most significant inspiration in helping me serve—family. On the surface, the Air Force core value “Service Before Self,” may appear to contradict familial needs; after all, service often demands sacrifice, and sacrifice may necessitate leaving family for some time.
  • Memorial Day memories

    Memorial Day!
  • Chief's corner - week of May 25

    There is such thing as a “late bloomer.” I lived it.
  • Why I Wear the Uniform

    When I was younger, I would wait for my dad to get home from work. I always remember how good he looked in his uniform when he walked through the door at the end of the day. As far back as I can remember, I always wanted to wear the same uniform as him. I was too young to understand what it stood for or why he put it on every day, but I knew it was something special and I wanted to be a part of it.
  • Chief's Corner - week of May 18

    From time to time, I look back over the 25 years I have served and reflect how I have changed over the years, from Airman 1st Class through Chief.
  • Honoring Police Officers: Sacrifice, service and reflection

    “When a police officer is killed, it’s not an agency that loses an officer, it’s an entire nation.” –Chris Cosgriff, Officer Down Memorial Page Founder
  • Chief's Corner - week of May 4

    We see Airmen every day who are not complying with standards. In our line of work, the inherent importance of our mission requires us to be able to follow instructions and make the right choices.
  • Month of the Military Child: To be a military child

    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
  • 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:

“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
