Posted May 25, 2012 by by Col. Michael Burke

My focus for this commentary is on our Air Force Core Values. Sure, I know, there have been hundreds if not thousands of such reviews and commentaries on this topic. But I think you’ll find this to be a somewhat different approach, so please indulge me and give it a read. The Air Force formally…

A tap on the shoulder

Posted May 11, 2012 by by Lt. Col. Arlene Collazo

As I was searching for a topic for this article, I realized I needed to look no further than our Air Force Core Values: integrity first, service before self and excellence in all we do.

I chose AADD

Posted May 11, 2012 by by SSgt. Erica Picariello

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood. It seems like we all know of someone who has gotten a DUI, but I’ve never heard of anyone end a drinking story with, “and then we took Airman Against Drunk Driving home.” Is it because we’re afraid that the word will get back to leadership and we’ll…

Hold the line on timeless leadership

Posted March 30, 2012 by Staff

Before I transferred from Edwards Air Force Base, Calif., I had an incentive ride in an F-16. At 15,000 feet, the view of Rogers Dry Lake Bed was surreal. The moment made me reflect on history, and I considered the many changes since the birth of the Air Force in 1947: the advent of personal…
