Default Air Force Logo Energy Awareness Month - Commentary: Energy dependence, climate change remain leadership challenges
As a clinical neuropsychologist who has studied the intricacies of how the human brain operates for the last 20 years, it still remains fascinating to observe the difficult process of change, even when negative consequences and facts are within clear view. For example, the negative effects of driving under the influence of alcohol, smoking, and

Default Air Force Logo I ask myself this: Did I do enough?
It was a typical Saturday morning for my family. As typical as it can be when you are a dual-military blended family and your better half is deployed overseas. We had gotten up, done our household chores, attended guitar lessons, and were on the road to Orlando when I got a call that I'll never forget - one that impacted me in a way I never thought

JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIO-LACKLAND, Texas -- October is National Cyber Security Awareness Month. All residents and users of the Air Force network play a part in keeping it safe. Air Forces Cyber urges you to learn as much as you can about cyber security and implement those practices at all times at work and at home. (U.S. Air Force graphic illustration by William Parks) National Cyber Security Awareness Month: What is cyber security?
Ok, so it's National Cyber Security Awareness Month, so what? It's also (among other observances) Native American Heritage Month, Lung Cancer Awareness Month and National Pomegranate Month in the United States. Antioxidants aside, those other two are hugely important and leave me wondering, "What does cyber security even mean and why does it

Default Air Force Logo CFC: Find your reason to donate
For the last six years, people have approached me during this time of year to ask if I would donate through the Combined Federal Campaign. These people caught my ear in different manners - some sat me down for a lengthy explanation of the CFC, some informed me of the CFC drive during commander's calls, some timidly approached me with small voices

Jeffery Hunt, 50th Space Wing director of staff I dare you to do better
Recently, I found myself watching the most recent "Star Trek" movie again. Do you ever have a moment when something just sticks in your mind and you can't let it go? Well, there was a point near the beginning of the movie when Capt. Christopher Pike is talking to James T. Kirk in a local bar after breaking up a fight between Pike's cadets and Kirk.

Default Air Force Logo Personal accountability: The critical link of our core values
We all know and live by our Air Force core values: integrity first, service before self, and excellence in all we do. There have been many articles written on our core values and what they mean to us; however, as a junior officer I never gave serious thought to how I felt about them. That all changed when I addressed an extremely challenging and

First Lt. Joseph Brock, Missile Defense Agency, zips through the wire during a zip line adventure Aug. 24 at Manitou Springs, Colo., as part of Schriever's Single Airman Initiative. Funded by the Office of the Secretary of Defense, the SAI program was designed to provide resources that foster a strong culture, mission and sense of community for single Airmen. The program provides funding for activities as well as equipment through March 2013. (U.S. Air Force photo/Staff Sgt. Julius Delos Reyes) Zip it
When the Air Force implemented the Single Airman Initiative, I was skeptical. See, I am a single Airman. I thought an initiative aimed at my non-married group is farcical. Sure, base organizations including Airman and family readiness centers have programs for married Airmen, but why do we need an initiative for single Airmen? Are we so

Default Air Force Logo Who was your best boss?
I've served in the Air Force for several years now and like many of you, I've experienced my fair share of good and bad leadership. Ironically, it is interesting how those really bad leaders or bad supervisors impact unit morale and can easily impact the work of unit personnel. For purposes of this discussion, morale is defined as the fuel that

Chief Master Sgt. Gary Sharp, 50th Mission Support Group superintendent Don't forget where you came from
One of the most important pieces of advice I received upon being promoted to chief master sergeant was, "Never forget where you came from." Although this guidance was valuable as a new chief, it was something that I've always held in high regard. No matter where I was in my career, I never forgot my humble beginnings as a kid from a small river

The power of resiliency
Recently, the Colorado Springs community encountered a huge challenge in the form of the Waldo Canyon fire that destroyed approximately 18,000 acres and roughly 350 homes evacuated. The historic Flying W Ranch was also destroyed during the fire, which was truly woven into the fiber of this community throughout the past 60 years as a key tourist
