Col. Toby Doran, 50th Operations Group commander
We will be ready
On Nov. 29, CNN aired a stark presentation on the state of space and the potential threat to our way of life.  The somewhat ominous title of the program was “War in Space – The Next Battlefield.”  For many, the presentation was shocking, but for the men and women of the 50th Operations Group, the reality of a contested, degraded and operationally

KABUL, Afghanistan – Capt. David Lyon, 21st Logistics Readiness Squadron at Peterson Air Force Base, Colo., was killed in December 2013 by a vehicle-borne improvised explosive in Kabul, Afghanistan. Lyon’s legacy was that of “no greater love,” which his teammates say he lived every day.  (Courtesy photo) In the shadow of 88201
I’ll never forget the first ride I took on a C-17 Globemaster III from McChord Air Force Base, Wash., tail number 88201 in January of 2014. Just before takeoff, we held a fallen hero ceremony on the ramp in Bagram, Afghanistan. Capt. David Lyon, my teammate and wingman on that deployment, had been killed along with two others by a vehicle-borne improvised explosive in Kabul a few days after Christmas.

PETERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Colo. – Senior Airman Rose Gudex, 21st Space Wing Public Affairs photojournalist, surrounds herself with her Air Force family from Peterson Air Force Base, Colo., during difficult times. Gudex didn’t have a solid support system before joining the military, but found a family in her brothers and sisters in arms. (U.S. Air Force photo by Airman 1st Class Dennis Hoffman) Good night, mom
At the time, I did not realize how important it was to have a support system. I also didn’t understand the concept that family didn’t have to be related and could be anyone who cared enough to make sure you were OK.

Default Air Force Logo Space pioneer offers words of wisdom
SCHRIEVER AIR FORCE BASE, Colo. - Flunking my commissioning physical at the U.S. Naval Academy (my eyesight had become so bad that I wasn’t qualified for sea command), I went to the Air Force liaison officer and asked him if they would take me. He said, “Of course.” To which I responded, “What will you do with me? You just fly airplanes.” His

Default Air Force Logo The Hurricane Seat
After a flight which left my cheeks numb and sinuses cleared, I reflected on the meaning of an unsuspected ride in the hurricane seat. I strongly believe life lessons present themselves in unexpected ways. Here is what I learned from sitting in my little torture seat for nearly an hour.

Default Air Force Logo Do you "Carpe diem" or do you "Dream for tomorrow?"
You may have heard the Latin phrase "Carpe diem!" It means "Seize the day!" It is an expression used to urge someone to make the most of the present time and give little or no thought to the future. Although the "Carpe diem" mindset has its place and application in life, one could argue that it is not compatible with military life and, more
