Default Air Force Logo 5 monkeys
A scientist was performing a behavioral experiment on monkeys to determine how they would react to negative stimuli. In a large cage, the scientist put a ladder leading up to a banana hanging from the top. He then placed five monkeys in the cage together. Immediately, and not surprisingly, one of the monkeys went straight for the banana. Before he

Choosing life as a civilian versus life as a uniformed military member can be a daunting task at the ripe young age of 18. What solidified my decision to join the Air Force?

Default Air Force Logo Combating stress
Stress. The Oxford dictionary defines stress as "a state of mental or emotional strain or tension resulting from adverse or very demanding circumstances."

All of these are plausible self-expressions that many of us encounter while admitting to making a mistake. While we all are going to make a mistake either in our personal or professional life, the fix action in many cases is the crucial

Default Air Force Logo Drinking and driving from an offender's perspective
The social pressures of drinking are ever present, but should not infringe on the need for responsibility to yourself and the community at large. Unfortunately, drinking and driving is an extremely common case in today's society, and has caused many senseless injuries and deaths. The laws have become stricter but the problem still exists. The

Default Air Force Logo Winter leadership required
"THESE are the times that try men's souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands by it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman." With those words in 1776, Thomas Paine addressed a nation that had recently declared independence. The leadership he

Default Air Force Logo My "C-" in Ethics 101 Explained--this stuff really is important!
My worst college grade was in ethics. Axiological ethics, deontological ethics, morals versus values -- it all seemed kind of mushy to me. After receiving my "C-," I skeptically reduced my personal ethics into a simple formula: if it feels good in my gut and doesn't harm anybody else, it's probably OK. Clearly, there are caveats to such a general

Chief Master Sgt. David Dock, Headquarters, Air Force Space Command, Directorate of Manpower, Personnel and Services When did your leadership light bulb come on?
In November 1992, a new Chief was assigned to my squadron. It caught all of our units' Airmen by surprise that the new Chief decided to move into the office adjacent to the bathrooms. There were much better locations behind "the glass doors". One early afternoon, I walked into the bathroom and on my way back the Chief asked me to come into his

Default Air Force Logo Fitness...or is it more?
Fitness has been a much talked about subject around the Air Force for quite some time. Much of the time, the focus has been about our fitness assessment rather than the topic of fitness itself. I have heard many people say, "I don't need a 32-inch waist or to be able to do 40 push-ups or sit-ups to do my job." Others have said, "I sit at a desk all
