Default Air Force Logo Servant leadership
In the profession of arms, we continually focus on and study the concept of what it means to be a leader. While there are numerous definitions of leadership, many of us associate leadership with someone who takes charge, leads from the front, and is appointed for a specific role. Although these concepts are correct, true leaders are not necessarily

About 80 percent of the assaults on Air Force women were perpetrated by military members and 80 percent of those were Air Force members. Nearly 50 percent of assaults on Air Force men were perpetrated by military members and of that, 92 percent were in the Air Force. (U.S. Air Force photo illustration) The enemy in the fox hole
Grappling with how to prevent sexual assault, we rightly focus on the positive impact of appropriate bystander/wingman intervention as well as how potential victims can reduce their risk. Another important avenue is to understand a significant barrier to prevention. That barrier is the denial that the offender may be one of our own. To address the

Author, Capt. Scott Taylor (courtesy photo) Overcoming pride to prevent suicide
As my office has just completed a resiliency stand-down day, I am struck by the increasing numbers of suicides in the Air Force every year.

Default Air Force Logo Straighten up ... Fly right
I think we would all agree the freedoms we enjoy as Americans are a direct result of sacrifices made by the armed service members in our history.While written history has not always been recorded it in its entirety, whether in foreign countries, on our own soil, or in the skies, the battles to gain and maintain our freedom have included, and in

Default Air Force Logo The tyranny of 'now'
Be careful what you wish for. George Bernard Shaw is famously quoted as saying, "There are two tragedies in life. One is not to get your heart's desire. The other is to get it." Our modern colloquial version of the sentiment is expressed in the proverb, "Be careful what you wish for; you might get it."In no aspect of our lives is this truer than in

Default Air Force Logo Voluntary Leave Transfer Program Keeps on Giving Year-Round
'Tis the season of giving when we open our hearts to others less fortunate than ourselves. There are many forms of giving, but there's only one that's designed specifically for federal civil servants that continues to give year-round.

I saw my grandfather yesterday. It was great to see him again. The years have flown by since he passed.I didn't see his face or hear his laugh; both always ushered in calm and goodness. I saw his champion's heart, unwavering determination and incredible mental toughness in the spirits of fellow amputees who visited my unit Dec.19.Chad Crittenden,

Default Air Force Logo Holiday Celebrations with Food
Many holidays, celebrations, family and cultural traditions often center on food. As a result, many people gain weight between Thanksgiving and the New Year. The problem is not that we celebrate and over indulge, but how we eat.It's the tempting treats during the holiday season and the pressure from family, friends, and co-workers to overeat. Maybe

Default Air Force Logo Hindered by Experience, Captivated by Confidence
