Default Air Force Logo Twenty Seconds of Courage and the Hard-Right Thing
We Bought a Zoo. Have you seen it? In the movie Matt Damon's character tells his son that sometimes all you need is "just twenty seconds of insane courage..just twenty seconds of embarrassing bravery..and I promise you, something great will come of it."As a father myself, I am instilling in my son the importance of doing the right thing and that

Default Air Force Logo CSAF Reading List and e-media free
Gen. Ronald Fogleman created the Chief of Staff of the Air Force Professional Reading Program in 1996 to develop a common frame of reference among Air Force members -- officers, enlisted and civilians -- to help each of us become better, more effective advocates of air and space power.These are not boring books about military strategies.  My last

Airman 1st Class Xavier Brezniak is assigned to the 50th Operations Support Squadron at Schriever Air Force Base, Colorado. (U.S. Air Force photo) Greater than myself: Why I wear the uniform
I was visiting family in beautiful Venice, California, when my cousin decided to show me a famous gym that is perhaps a stone's throw away from his property. As we walked in, I stared at photos and videos of Arnold Schwarzenegger alongside other amazing bodybuilders and Olympians who have trained at this gym. I proceeded to take my wallet out and

Default Air Force Logo Honoring Veterans through Wingmanship
On November 11th, we honored the 22 million living Americans who have served in the armed forces of this nation. Some of us served when our country called on us during times of national peril, others volunteered because we felt it was the right thing to do. While there are a few key events that everyone who has worn the uniform can relate to (early

Maj. Christopher Butler is the 21st Space Operations Squadron, Det. 2 commander and is assigned to Guam Tracking Station, Guam. (U.S. Air Force photo) Guam Tracking Station: A heritage of excellence
Assuming command of Guam Tracking Station has been both an honor and privilege I will never forget. When I was first notified of being selected for command I was both overwhelmed and excited for the next leadership challenge to come. When I first arrived to the island of Guam and stepped foot into Detachment 2, 21st Space Operations Squadron, two

Chief Master Sgt. Alexander Hall is the superintendent for the 50th Network Operations Group at Schriever Air Force Base, Colorado. (U.S. Air Force photo) Crossing the finish line--the need for civilian transition leadership
Leadership.  The military does it like no other.  From the moment a civilian raises their right hand and makes that solemn oath, they're led by trainers, supervisors, commissioned and noncommissioned officers throughout their career.  Whether it's four years or 24 years, they're guided every step by leaders.  That is of course, until the end is in

Default Air Force Logo Chief's Corner: Got JET fuel?
My greatest mentor used to ask me every day if I put fuel in my JET. JET (judgment, experience and training) is the basis of all things past that help us formulate a decision for today's and tomorrow's issues. Each situation pours just a little more fuel into your JET and increases the knowledge you have to leverage. Think about it...when we were

Lt. Col. Nathan Clemmer is the 50th Civil Engineer Squadron commander at Schriever Air Force Base, Colorado. (U.S. Air Force photo) Diversity matters
Sometimes I recount stories about where I grew up, on a mile-long dirt road that was up hill both ways. People usually laugh. Then I continue about how I only had wood heat, spring fed water and a rotary phone with a party line (the older generation out there should remember that one). My unique and monolithic cultural experience, if left without

Lt. Col. Jeffrey Westphal is the 50th Security Forces Squadron commander at Schriever Air Force Base, Colorado. Defend the base, do your part
This is the first assignment I have had the opportunity to be assigned base housing, and I sure do enjoy it! The housing is top quality, while the amenities and support offered to residents are also very valuable. But it seems that a very significant selling point has always been the sense of safety and security that comes from living on a

Lt. Col. Timothy Purcell, 50th Operations Support Squadron commander (U.S. Air Force photo) Feedback: More than the Airman Comprehensive Assessment
Often, when we hear the term "feedback," we think of the formal feedback process, also known as the Airman Comprehensive Assessment. You know, the meeting you have once or twice a year with your supervisor to discuss your performance, goals and expectations and depending on rank, is documented on an AF Form 724, AF Form 931 or AF Form
