Posted July 20, 2012 by by Lt. Col. Jupe Etheridge

Do you have airmen who depend on you? If so, are you ready for when unthinkable tragedy strikes? What about an accidental death, a suicide, battlefield casualty, or even murder?

I am an American Airman: I will not fail!

Posted July 6, 2012 by by SSgt. Torri Savarese

Does the EPR need a bailout?

Posted July 6, 2012 by by TSgt. Kitsana R. Dounglomchan

What do enlisted performance reports, Goldman Sachs and Bank of America have in common? They suffer from bad brand name recognition. So, what should we do? Bailout our EPR system?

Posted July 6, 2012 by by Lt. Col. Michael Wulfestieg

They really are ‘out to get you’

Posted June 22, 2012 by by Lt. Col. Michael Onines

When I was first assigned a position to lead people in the Air Force, I was expected to be, among other things, a safety cheerleader, encouraging my team to avoid mishaps and work safely. This was a bit new to me and I found most safety lectures I sat through in the past to be…

Leadership – it’s not rocket science, it’s harder

Posted June 8, 2012 by by Aaron D. Burgstein

Leading in our fiscal environment

Posted June 8, 2012 by by Capt. Nicholas Shimkus

While executing a few mission rehearsals in the middle of the African desert, one of my men was returning to our rally point on his all-terrain vehicle and was being a little too aggressive in his maneuvers. Sure enough, he ended up in the dirt with the ATV alongside him. The rest of the team…
