Default Air Force Logo Celebrating diversity in our Air Force
As I contemplated this article and the fact that it would be published during February, which is African American/Black History Month, I thought at first that perhaps I'm not the best candidate to write this. After all, I'm not African-American or any other ethnic minority. But upon further reflection, I decided that some of the experiences I had

Lt. Col. Melissa Krambeck, 45th Space Wing director of wing inspection A Sexual Assault Survivor's View: What Did I Survive?
Editor's note: this is part two in an eight-part series about sexual assault awareness.I am a survivor of a traumatic sexual assault.

Lt. Col. Melissa Krambeck, 45th Space Wing director of wing inspection A Sexual Assault Survivors View: Trigger for Survivors
Editor's note: This is part one of an eight-part series about sexual assault awareness.For the first time in 7 years, I attended Sexual Assault Awareness Training. It was a major milestone for me. Stepping back in time (I was sexually assaulted in 1993), in 2004 the Air Force released a training video which was mandatory viewing/training for all

When riding a motorcycle under the influence, poor judgment and distorted vision get in the way of your brain trying to solve complicated physics calculations while considering acceleration, speed, lean angle, side slip, road surfaces, obstacles, time and distance to decision points and evasive maneuvers should your calculations prove wrong. (Courtesy photo) Got Alcohol? Then Don't Ride
Riding motorcycles sober is dangerous enough. Riding under the influence is suicidal. Those who have tried it and survived (including me) are just lucky. First, consider the natural resting position of a motorcycle is on its side. Don't believe me? Try walking away from your bike without putting the kickstand down -- I did that once. Then consider

Default Air Force Logo I was determined to live
I don't mean "the parachute opened in just the knick of time as I plummeted to the Earth" kind of save.I was failing college classes and getting into trouble. I didn't care if my decisions lead to jail or death. I was too busy recklessly living in the moment while not giving a thought to the future. I knew I needed to make a decision. So I raised

. No Bad Wingmen
In too many mishap investigations we find out there were other Airmen present. Some were in a position to physically intervene or at least say, "knock it off," and potentially prevent the mishap person from dying or sustaining severe injuries; but for some reason they chose not to. Law enforcement calls these negligent bystanders witnesses. I call

Mary Hinson, USAFR) Riding Stupid Kills
There are many ways to kill yourself -- riding stupid is one of them. According to a recent Air Combat Command Safety study, more than 80 Airmen across the Air Force have died while motorcycling in the last 5 years. The sad thing: in 63 percent of the cases, Airmen were willfully non-compliant; that is, they tempted fate with one or more of the

Default Air Force Logo Civilian vs Military Justice System: How do they compare?
When I was in high school, before I learned that the military even had lawyers, I believed commanders imposed punishment on the spot without so much as attempting to get the other side of the story. I blame television! I now know that was totally wrong. But, in my own defense, I let myself be misled by Hollywood's portrayal of the military justice
