  • Guam Tracking Station: A heritage of excellence

    Assuming command of Guam Tracking Station has been both an honor and privilege I will never forget. When I was first notified of being selected for command I was both overwhelmed and excited for the next leadership challenge to come. When I first arrived to the island of Guam and stepped foot into Detachment 2, 21st Space Operations Squadron, two
  • Crossing the finish line--the need for civilian transition leadership

    Leadership.  The military does it like no other.  From the moment a civilian raises their right hand and makes that solemn oath, they're led by trainers, supervisors, commissioned and noncommissioned officers throughout their career.  Whether it's four years or 24 years, they're guided every step by leaders.  That is of course, until the end is in
  • Chief's Corner: Got JET fuel?

    My greatest mentor used to ask me every day if I put fuel in my JET. JET (judgment, experience and training) is the basis of all things past that help us formulate a decision for today's and tomorrow's issues. Each situation pours just a little more fuel into your JET and increases the knowledge you have to leverage. Think about it...when we were
  • Diversity matters

    Sometimes I recount stories about where I grew up, on a mile-long dirt road that was up hill both ways. People usually laugh. Then I continue about how I only had wood heat, spring fed water and a rotary phone with a party line (the older generation out there should remember that one). My unique and monolithic cultural experience, if left without
  • Defend the base, do your part

    This is the first assignment I have had the opportunity to be assigned base housing, and I sure do enjoy it! The housing is top quality, while the amenities and support offered to residents are also very valuable. But it seems that a very significant selling point has always been the sense of safety and security that comes from living on a
  • Feedback: More than the Airman Comprehensive Assessment

    Often, when we hear the term "feedback," we think of the formal feedback process, also known as the Airman Comprehensive Assessment. You know, the meeting you have once or twice a year with your supervisor to discuss your performance, goals and expectations and depending on rank, is documented on an AF Form 724, AF Form 931 or AF Form
  • 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
  • Repeat Offender Polluters

    Some of the biggest repeat polluters in America are not always major corporations. 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
  • 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,
  • Reveille/reatreat: Two minutes a day -- what to do?

    Every day millions of people go to work, they park their cars or exit mass transit, they head into their various workplaces and when work is done for the day they leave their workplaces and proceed back to their mode of transportation.But if you are one of a few thousand folks who work on a U.S. military installation worldwide, two things set you
