  • Step up: Don’t be afraid to be a Mitchell, Doolittle, or Arnold

    The U.S. Air Force is sitting at a nexus in which the world is becoming increasingly dangerous and complex, and our nation is asking us to do things that keep us busier now than ever before, yet we have fewer people now than at any point in our history—just over a third of what we had in the 1950s!
  • Ka’ena Point Satellite Tracking Station: Celebrating 59 years of service

    "Coming together is a beginning; keeping together is progress; working together is success." - Henry Ford
  • 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.’
  • How to get a stratification

    Now that I have your attention,
  • Weathering seasons of change

    Fall is a season of change. Leaves become vibrant with color, the air becomes cooler and pumpkin spice flavor seems to be in everything. However, while some welcome change, others will try to resist it.
  • Success through teamwork, trust, respect

    Happy Fiscal New Year! I’m proud to report the 50th Contracting Squadron and 50th Comptroller Squadron have successfully brought fiscal 2017 to a close as of Sept. 30.
  • Service before self: It's a balance

    I think we all have a good understanding of the Air Force Core Value, “service before self.” This core value seems self-explanatory, but how much service is enough? Where should we draw the line?
  • Internalize, operationalize our core values

    With great power comes great responsibility and the necessity for very high standards; which is why the Air Force requires each of us, active duty, civil servant, reserve member and contractors to exemplify three core values: Integrity First, Service Before Self, and Excellence in All We Do.
  • Why I wear the uniform

    Throughout my life, I have had countless character defining moments, events that molded me into the person I am today. One of the most significant moments also happens to be one of my earliest and saddest memories.
  • HULA employs lethal combo of AF personnel, innovation

    America’s Air Force is the smallest it has been since its inception; however, despite downsizing, operations tempo remains high, and Airmen and civilian counterparts are shouldering the burden of an ever-increasing workload.

“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
