Posted December 20, 2013 by Master Sgt. ERIK BENSEN

As a first sergeant I’ve learned some valuable lessons from my commanders.

Posted December 20, 2013 by Pedro Mota and Grace Lee

Be prepared

Posted December 13, 2013 by Col. CONSTANCE JACKSON

The dirty dollar

Posted December 13, 2013 by Master Sgt. ERIC GRAY

Have you ever glanced down at the ground to see the distinct green of a crisp, clean dollar bill? I am willing to bet if you did, you would have picked it up. The question is if that dollar was crumpled up and dirty, would you have picked it up anyway? Would you have straightened…
