The "Year of Leadership" takes place from September 2008 to August 2009. (U.S. Air Force graphic) Year of Leadership
The "Year of Leadership" at Vandenberg is in full swing and I want to stress the importance of participation at all levels. Unfortunately, disturbing incidents over the last year called into question focus and expertise in certain mission areas. As a result, Gen. C. Robert Kehler directed this initiative because, "The sustainment, growth, and

Default Air Force Logo Year of Leadership The paradox of discipline
The idea discipline and freedom are mutually exclusive is a longstanding one, and Plato generally receives the credit. We often see this play out in our daily lives; try to tell a coworker to clean their desk or a child to clean their room, and you may hear them say you are encroaching upon their freedom. In a free society, it seems discipline is

Default Air Force Logo An opportunity to lead
About a week ago, an issue occurred regarding an operational deployment that required immediate intervention from my Crew Force Management Flight. When I requested information from the flight, it wasn't the flight commander, noncommissioned officer in charge or even a flight NCO who forwarded the data to me. The most junior member of the flight, an

Default Air Force Logo Looking at 4,400 words that formed the country
"We the people ..." No three words have as much significance to the United States as these. More important than these words, however, are the seven articles and 27 amendments that follow these words, making the Constitution of the United States. In 1787 Benjamin Franklin was 80 years old, the Revolutionary War had ended, and a new government was

Thanks for serving! How many times have you heard that phrase? Have you ever been minding your own business and had a neighbor, a friend from downtown or even a complete stranger walk up to you and thank you for serving your country? You've heard it at military appreciation days, on the 4th of July during parades, and certainly in airports where

Default Air Force Logo Are you committed?
I recently retired from the Air Force after more than 29 years of uniformed service. I distinctly remember being asked by many when I was going to retire after I reached my 20-year point. The thought of retiring never crossed my mind, so my response was always I was making it a career. Why? Because I was committed to uniformed service, the Air

C-54 Skymaster Berlin Airlift a triumph for early Air Force
In comparison to other wartime commemorations, you don't often hear about an air campaign that resulted in one of America's finest victories without a single shot fired: The 1948 Berlin Airlift. It began when the Western allies approved the deutschemark as the postwar German currency June 20, 1948. The Soviet Union responded by cutting all land and

One year after the accident that claimed the life of Canadian Air Force pilot, Snowbird 2 Capt. Shawn McCaughey, the Canadian Snowbirds Aerial Demonstration Team returned to us and they culminated their performances with a successful weekend air show in a tribute to their fallen friend. Last year, during a practice session May 18, Captain McCaughey

Default Air Force Logo Rolling down the highway ... literally
I don't want to see how I'm going to die.Those were the words that crawled through my mind as my car begin to turn over at 70 miles an hour. Thankfully (and apparently), I didn't die that day. Call it luck, call it fate. I call it a seatbelt. It was a warm, summer day in the Pacific Northwest, the type of day made for long drives. I called one of

Default Air Force Logo 10 helpful tips for long, successful Air Force career
A few years ago, I read an article written for an Air Force base paper in England. It was written by captain in the Area Defense Counsel office. In it, he discussed, from his experiences, the top ten things an Airman could do to stay out of trouble. I've had the opportunity to command five different units and have found that advice to be spot on. I
