“Citizen Soldier” is a phrase synonymous with the National Guard. This term definitely applies to the newest Alaska Air National Guard unit – the 213th Space Warning Squadron at Clear Air Force Station, Alaska. A large portion of the personnel working at Clear reside within the communities of Nenana, Anderson and Healy. During the recent Parks

Default Air Force Logo Promoting highest ethical standards
Martin Luther King Jr. once said, “The true measure of a man is not how he behaves in moments of comfort and convenience, but how he stands in times of controversy and challenge.” Daily we make decisions that challenge us to distinguish right from wrong. The great majority of these decision points are clear and uncomplicated, while others involve a

Default Air Force Logo Taming the credit monster
"People do not plan to fail, they fail to plan.” It is an adage spoken countless times — unfortunately for many it rings painfully true in today’s easy-credit environment. In the past few months I have heard many stories of troops who have put themselves into devastating financial hardship due to a lack of planning and fiscal self control. Today, I

Default Air Force Logo 101 Critical Days: Visibility, predictability key to bicycle safety
When an automobile and a bicyclist are involved in an accident, it seldom matters who has the right of way--the bicyclist, more often than not, loses. The 21st Space Wing Safety Office at Peterson Air Force Base provided worthy tips for automobile drivers in the June 1 Space Observer. Here are a few: • Bicyclists have the same rights as drivers on

These words were part of President Harry Truman's address to a joint session of Congress April 16, 1945, shortly after President Franklin Roosevelt died. President Truman's address made clear that the United States would see World War II through to the end. (U.S. Air Force Photo/Staff Sgt. Olenda Peña-Perez) Determination, air power crucial to D-Day victory
Many D-Day accounts focus on the lethal conditions servicemembers faced as they came ashore on the beaches of Normandy, June 6, 1944.  Allied forces suffered heavy casualties at Omaha and Juno beaches, and by June 11, more than 53,000 had been killed. The role of air power in the success of D-Day cannot be denied. Air power prepared the battlefield

Default Air Force Logo Opening pathways to success
When speaking with Airmen people about their career goals and aspirations, I am routinely asked what assignments they should pursue or what the path to success is. My usual response is there is no single assignment or path to success, but there are a few keys which can help open pathways to success. They are: professional, attitude, relationships

Default Air Force Logo U.S. Air Force downsizing is a sensitive issue
May 10 was a tough day. We had to tell 11 young officers they would not be continuing their career in the Air Force and will be separated by October. As a wing commander, I’d like to add a senior officer’s perspective to this sensitive issue. These officers have served their country honorably. Losing them is like losing members of my own family. I

Fortunately, these are the only head injuries Carmelo, Dextra Hoffman's fiancée, sustained in a recent motorcycle accident. If he had worn a helmet, he would not have sustained those injuries. Servicemembers must wear helmets and other safety gear at all times, even in states where helmet wear is optional. Save your life: wear a helmet
I got a call while I was at work not long ago from a woman I didn't know asking me if I knew Carmelo Baez. I said yes, then wondered why I heard traffic and an ambulance. She told me he'd been in a motorcycle accident, and the ambulance was there to take him to the hospital. I asked how he was. She said he was not able to talk and that the
