Default Air Force Logo Bloom Where You're Planted
It happens all the time; we've all heard it. "This job won't get me promoted," or "If I don't get the stratification, I have no chance of promotion." I've heard it from both officers and enlisted. I've heard it from old and young. And now with the forced distribution of ratings in the new Enlisted Performance Report system, I hear it with a hint of

Default Air Force Logo Repeat Offender Polluters

They are always in the news because they have caused some significant spill incidents throughout the history of the Industrial Revolution. What most people don't know is every time you litter a little, it adds up to a lot.It doesn't take a major accident to release

Airman 1st Class Austin Hopper, 50th Security Forces Squadron. Why I wear the uniform
As new Airmen, we are often asked "why did you join the military?" Sometimes we don't know the answer right off the top of our heads. Either because we've forgotten, or we never truly knew. So before we stand in front an audience and freeze up, we begin to think of how the Air Force benefits us. We begin to mention things such as an education,

An Airman salutes the flag at Schriever Air Force Base, Colorado, Friday, Sept. 25, 2015. If you’re at the door when the music for reveille or retreat begins, do you step out to salute? (U.S. Air Force photo/Brian Hagberg) Would you go out?
I arrived at Schriever Air Force Base, my first duty station, as a young Airman First Class three years ago. One day, as I was leaving work, I noticed a large group gathered at the door while retreat was sounding. They were chatting amicably about their day or plans for the evening when I asked, "Is it disrespectful to walk out during retreat?"A

Default Air Force Logo So you want to play in the NFL?
Many young men in the U.S. dream of becoming a professional football player, leading their favorite team to glory in the Super Bowl.While I certainly no longer fall into the category of "young man," the curiosity of exactly how I would stack up against the current crop of NFL players' measurables of still lingers.I was given the opportunity to

Default Air Force Logo The Two E'S: 'EMPOWERMENT AND ENCOURAGEMENT!'
It doesn't seem possible to me that it's been approximately 18 months since I had my first opportunity to serve as the Launch Decision Authority here on the Eastern Range -- and that was for MUOS-2, which launched July 19, 2013, about five weeks after I had the fantastic opportunity to assume command of the 45th Space Wing.Since that time, we have

Default Air Force Logo Framily gets it, keeps me together
A little background: This is my fourth assignment in eight years. The last two assignments were overseas, coupled with deployment and temporary duties across Western and Eastern Europe. After nearly four years overseas, I was ready to step foot on American soil, but the transition back to America and my home state has been surprisingly rough.I

Default Air Force Logo The Air Force issued me my 'kids'
While I've decided to live the child-free lifestyle, the Air Force, in its infinite wisdom, saw the need to issue me two kids. They are both straight out of technical training and brand new to the Air Force, and one is still too young to accept an adult drink.Let's be honest: As children do, they totally cut into my "me time."In all seriousness,
