  • Energy conservation, efficiency, a priority for AFSPC

    Energy conservation is a national and command priority. The growth and demand for energy is increasing quickly, putting a great deal of pressure on the available resources. Reducing the amount of the energy you use is one of the fastest, most effective ways to save energy and money. It will also help fight climatic change and provide for cleaner
  • Air Force Clubs: tradition or distant memory?

    Are you a member of "your" officer or enlisted club? For those of you who are, join me in explaining to your fellow Airmen the importance of being a member of "their" Air Force club. Invite them, perhaps persuade them, to join during our ongoing Air Force Space Command Commanders' Challenge. Help them understand the personal and professional value
  • Have you seen our Web site?

    If you picked up the Feb. 8 Satellite Flyer, you might have read about the base's Feb. 1 African-American Heritage Month kickoff breakfast on the front page. If you visited our public Web site at www.schriever.af.mil, you might have seen the story almost a full week sooner. Timeliness is one of the advantages we can provide through publishing news
  • African-American History Month: 'Heroes for All Americans'

    February, as African-American History Month, is a time to reflect on the contributions of African-Americans to our country. Though no single article can adequately cover African-American history justly, there are few areas that can rival the vast participation of African-Americans in war. African-Americans came to the aid of their country every
  • The other side of leading

    Reams of good advice have been written on effective leadership principles (by far worthier authors than myself). One critical aspect of leading a diverse set of individuals is often overlooked -- the part where you as a leader make a concerted attempt to thoroughly know your folks. Supervisors often get caught up in the myriad of mission-essential
  • Schriever IG: 'We are here to help'

    "The Inspector General must have a horse allowed him and some soldiers to attend him and all the rest commanded to obey and assist, or else the service will suffer; for he is but one man and must correct many, and therefore he cannot be beloved. And he must ride from one garrison to another to see the soldiers do not outrage or scathe the country
  • Do you feel lucky?

    Have you ever wondered how some people get so lucky? Think about it. How does the senior Airman that was promoted below the zone also get promoted to staff sergeant on the first try? How do people survive catastrophes? How do people get rich? Are they lucky? You bet, but more often than not, it's because they made their own luck. In many of these
  • 45th Space Wing dedicated to AFSO21 efforts

    We all know that the Air Force is facing a challenging future with implementing a ground-breaking strategy for recapitalization, but through the process of change, we need to ensure our workforce is spending our limited time and budget with maximum efficiency. Throughout the force, leaders everywhere will look at wasteful processes, because we
  • Good advice: Hit something soft

    It could have been much worse. As my family sport utility vehicle slid sideways in a snow storm Dec. 2, I remembered the words of my high school driving instructor, "if you're going to crash, aim for something soft." But, there was nothing soft to the right side of Colorado Highway 115, just outside of Cañon City, and I wasn't having much luck
  • Self-improvement - A lifelong concept

    Self-improvement or continuous learning goes beyond advanced academic education and career field training courses. Self-improvement involves making an effort to learn something new and testing one's abilities to overcome challenging obstacles. Additionally, in today's "Information Age," everyone must continuously train to remain skilled at the
