Default Air Force Logo Pushing through barriers
Last week I received one of the more rewarding emails of my career. The current commandant of the Community College of the Air Force contacted me to let me know that this spring the CCAF would award an associate's degree in emergency management to Staff Sgt. Jason Ellis, a retired explosive ordnance disposal technician who was wounded in action.

Lt. Col. Lynn Plunkett, 50th Space Communication Squadron Commander Balance--look at the big picture, keep it in perspective
Balance.I know it's one of those words leadership likes to throw out there, but is it really possible in today's constrained environment? I would offer "yes," as I am one of those leaders who has "balance" as one of my unit priorities. I do understand the impacts of a Consolidated Unit Inspection and other peaks in mission requirements and still

Lt. Col. Michael A. Wulfestieg, Commander, 21st Space Operations Squadron Learning lessons from family history
Several years ago, while I was first assigned to Schriever, I started researching my family's military history and legacy. It was about the time, as a young captain, that I was beginning to understand some of the broader perspectives on duty and service, and really coming to grasp with the challenges of leadership and followership. What I

This is a wonderful time of year to be generous with your friends and family, and those charities you deem worthy. Don’t let that generosity benefit cyber criminals this year. Happy holidays from the 24th Air Force family to yours! (U.S. Air Force graphic by William Parks)
'Tis the season for holiday hacking
Having something stolen is just the worst... Before I joined the Air Force, I went to a small college in the flat state of Kansas on a partial basketball scholarship. I remember walking out on the court for the first time and feeling a huge sense of pride in making it to that level after so many years of hard work.My twin brother was off to the

Many of you know the heroic story of Prisoner of War and U.S. Air Force Academy graduate Capt. Lance P. Sijan, and if you do not, I encourage you to research his struggle for freedom when he was captured after being shot down during the Vietnam conflict.

Pleased to say thank you
The inspection is almost upon us or haven't you heard? There's a lot of activity going on across the 50th Space Wing and Team Schriever members have been working long hours, as we push ourselves in our final preparations for the Compliance Unit Inspection. It's understandable for tensions and stress levels to rise. Extra hours, attention to detail,

Becker was a dedicated, professional, charismatic leader and mentor who had an enduring impact on his young and impressionable exec (that would be me).For those of

When we think of innovation, we often think of life-changing inventions that have improved our lives dramatically. Innovation, however, encompasses more than inventing something great from nothing.
