  • On Service Before Self

    I had the opportunity in early December 2015 to run the St. Jude Children's Research Hospital half marathon in Memphis, Tennessee. It was my second time to participate in this fundraising event and run with a team founded by a friend who tragically lost her 3-year-old daughter to an incurable brain tumor.The difference between the first time and
  • America's Fortress: 50 years of defending the homeland

    April 20 marks a significant milestone in the history of national defense when Cheyenne Mountain celebrates its 50th anniversary. On that day in 1966, one of today's modern engineering marvels was declared fully operational and began its diligent vigil protecting the nation.But there is more to the history of "The Mountain" than its opening or this
  • Leading the Way

    For the past 18 months, I have had the honor of leading the most unique squadron I have encountered during my career.  I have been continually amazed at the hand-chosen Airmen accomplishing such a diverse range of tasks to directly support the 460th Space Wing mission - Persistent Global Surveillance.  With such a distinctive squadron mission, I
  • Take time to explain “why”

    AL UDEID AIR BASE, Qatar - The views expressed in this article are those of the author and do not necessarily reflect the official policy or position of the Air Force, the Department of Defense or the U.S. Government.Good communication is a key element of successful organizations. As leaders, managers, or supervisors, we're sometimes so focused on
  • Building resiliency through competition

    Air Force Instruction 90-506, Comprehensive Airman Fitness, focuses heavily on the wingman concept (Airmen helping Airmen), community aid programs and eliminating the stigma associated with seeking help.  These excellent programs ensure our Airmen remain fit physically, mentally, socially and spiritually.   I picked up a Resiliency pamphlet
  • Mastering space

    Those who were present for the Air Force Space Command briefing on the Space Mission Force concept this past January will likely agree that at the time, they didn't see it coming or all that has transpired since.  This is a cryptic way of observing that we in the operations group have had to adjust to a completely new way of thinking about how our
  • Twenty Seconds of Courage and the Hard-Right Thing

    We Bought a Zoo. Have you seen it? In the movie Matt Damon's character tells his son that sometimes all you need is "just twenty seconds of insane courage..just twenty seconds of embarrassing bravery..and I promise you, something great will come of it."As a father myself, I am instilling in my son the importance of doing the right thing and that
  • CSAF Reading List and e-media free

    Gen. Ronald Fogleman created the Chief of Staff of the Air Force Professional Reading Program in 1996 to develop a common frame of reference among Air Force members -- officers, enlisted and civilians -- to help each of us become better, more effective advocates of air and space power.These are not boring books about military strategies.  My last
  • Greater than myself: Why I wear the uniform

    I was visiting family in beautiful Venice, California, when my cousin decided to show me a famous gym that is perhaps a stone's throw away from his property. As we walked in, I stared at photos and videos of Arnold Schwarzenegger alongside other amazing bodybuilders and Olympians who have trained at this gym. I proceeded to take my wallet out and
  • Honoring Veterans through Wingmanship

    On November 11th, we honored the 22 million living Americans who have served in the armed forces of this nation. Some of us served when our country called on us during times of national peril, others volunteered because we felt it was the right thing to do. While there are a few key events that everyone who has worn the uniform can relate to (early
