Lt. Gen. Michael J. Basla The changing face of the military since 9/11
I've proudly worn Air Force blue since 1978, and having served for so long, you might be tempted to think you've seen it all. But that's never true, and as my perspective grows, it gets easier to point to dates and say, "That's when my life changed." I can say without hesitation, September 11, 2001​, was one of those days. I'd like to share my

I would never have associated the horrible acts performed on Sept. 11, 2001 would ultimately lead to my deployment to Afghanistan. As an Air Force space and missile professional, I have been told that we "deploy in place" at locations like Minot Air Force Base, N.D. [my first assignment] for the nuclear deterrence mission or at Schriever AFB, Colo.

Default Air Force Logo Resiliency: Our safety net
The other day while visiting the base exchange I met an old friend I hadn't seen in 20 years. We were stationed together at the Air Force Academy as young Airmen and we had dorm rooms only a couple rooms apart. He retired a couple years back as a first sergeant but his civil service job keeps him involved in the Air Force and its current events.

Stress is an ever evolving issue in today's operational Air Force. Deployment rates are continually on the rise, manning is gradually being reduced, and our budget continues to be cut. During this critical time period, every Airman needs to take care of themselves and one another. During day-to-day operations, stress and pressure on every member

Eight thousand feet over northern Europe flew 1st Lt. Walter R. Groce. It was fall 1944 and the war seemed to have no end in sight. Allied forces, including, Groce and his fellow P-47 pilots of the 56th Fighter Group, were feeling optimistic and as ready for battle as one could be.

In the U.S. Air Force we are allowed to think.We are all bound to follow lawful orders, of course.
