  • From security forces to ground safety

    Thirteen years ...That is how long I've spent patrolling the streets as a security forces member. I've written tickets, made arrests and saved lives. I was great at my job.I have always wanted to work in public safety so when the opportunity presented itself to change career fields I knew I made the right choice by joining the ground safety team.
  • What can you optimize?

    What can you optimize? This month, the Innovate Now Team asks you to take a minute to look at your processes. How can you optimize them? How can you shave off a second or polish every action just a little more? How can you automate small tasks that can add up to time and money savings? I encourage you to use different techniques and have others
  • Preparing for the worst motorcycle ride of your life

    According to the latest statistics from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, motorcyclists are 30 times more likely to die and five times more likely to get injured in an accident than their 4-wheeled adversaries on the road. Helmets help by reducing the likelihood of dying in a motorcycle accident by 37 percent. Alcohol hurts; one
  • Family, standards, teamwork: A trio of balance

    Greetings, Sharks! What an honor it is for me to be selected as the 45th Space Wing's command chief, and even more fortunate that my family and I get to remain on Florida's beautiful Space Coast for a little while longer.This is an extremely exciting time for my family and me, and I hope I will have the opportunity to meet each and every one of the
  • The second impact is often the deadliest

    Did you know there are three collisions that occur in every crash? While a vehicle crash in its simplest form may be over within seconds, other objects within the vehicle are still in motion. Let's examine this all-too-common scenario: Vehicle hits object, vehicle either comes to a sudden stop (yikes!) or continues until the forward velocity is
  • Remembering my Air Force journey

    Sometimes, a journey doesn't make sense until you've crossed the finish line. Often, it is only after you've run the race that you can look back and reflect upon the path you took to get to where you stand today. This fall, I will cross a major finish line in my life when I officially retire from the Air Force after 27 years of service. So, I find
  • 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
  • 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. I was raped 20 years ago, and I still relive the rape when reminders trigger my memories. It took me 19 years to disclose the details of my assault outside my immediate family. An Airman I knew in technical training
  • 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
  • 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
