Posted March 7, 2014 by Chaplain (Lt. Col.) Theadore Wilson

Courtesy photo Craig M. Mullaney “I wanted that future officer to weigh decisions with a supple mind and to be comfortable with nuance and uncertainty.” ~ Craig M. Mullaney Are you uncomfortable with uncertainty? Are you scared of the future? The decisions we make in life are not often easy: medical issues, care for elderly…

Standards: Foundation for enlisted

Posted June 13, 2014 by Master Sgt. BRIAN LEONARD

“Standards of Conduct, Character and Military Bearing” is a title familiar to us all as one of the enlisted performance report blocks. However, the term “standards” is much broader than that and includes all the rules and regulations that govern our daily lives as professional Airmen. Whether it is an Air Force Instruction, technical order,…

Service before self, but don’t forget about self

Posted August 1, 2014 by Tech. Sgt. MARK ADAMS

As Airmen, we live and breathe the Air Force core values on a daily basis. However, don’t let our second core value, service before self, distract you from actually taking care of yourself. In my 13 years of active-duty service, there is one regret I hear most from people both in and out of the…

Protection through detection saves lives

Posted September 19, 2014 by Master Sgt. RICHARD CRIM

KEESLER AIR FORCE BASE, Miss. — I remember the words on signs like it was yesterday. All of the business marquees outside of Tyndall Air Force Base, Florida, read “Where is Adam?” There were billboards offering rewards and advertisements in newspapers requesting information for the whereabouts of 4-year old Adam Finch. The year was 1997…

Chaplain’s thoughts …

Posted October 31, 2014 by Chaplain (Maj.) Larry Fowler

Boo! Each year we celebrate Halloween. From cute to gory, from charming to horrifying we find numerous ways to observe this day. Halloween, like many American holidays, seems to mean many things to many people; it deftly spans the continuum from comical to horrifying. Many people of faith back away from the celebration of this…

Chaplain’s thoughts …

Posted January 16, 2015 by Chaplain (1st Lt.) Ben Skelton

What would your life look like if you saw obstacles and setbacks as stepping stones to a greater maturity and a stronger faith? There is nothing more motivating and encouraging than seeing a real-life underdog on the big screen! No greater example of this is the movie “Rudy,” a story about a small guy with…

Posted March 6, 2015 by Chaplain (Maj.) Larry Fowler

A very wise man once said, “Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It’s not.” This line, from the book “Lorax,” by Dr. Seuss, indicates that we all need to care about those around us. One essential part of caring is seeing. Having the ability to see…

Fly Over: ‘The Raven’

Posted May 4, 2012 by by Macario Mora

James McTeigue’s “The Raven,” which opened April 27, had all the makings of a thoroughly entertaining film. Edgar Allan Poe (John Cusack) is an unsung hero of American literature whose genius continues to terrify millions centuries after his untimely and mysterious death. He was truly one of America’s first great literary minds. After I found…

Fly Over: ‘Prometheus’

Posted June 22, 2012 by by Macario Mora

“Prometheus” is a visually epic film that fails just as epically with its incoherent storyline. The plot is filled with more holes than craters on the surface of the moon. Ridley Scott’s prequel to “Alien” felt like a more aesthetically pleasing episode of the History Channel’s “Ancient Aliens,” but an hour longer and even less…
