History in flesh better than reading about it

Posted June 8, 2012 by by Lt. Col. Dominic Clementz

Recently, I had the unprecedented opportunity to spend an evening socializing with veterans and family members whose life experiences spanned nine decades. The social brought together an Auschwitz and Holocaust survivor, a D-Day and concentration camp liberator, a Pearl Harbor survivor, a...

Outcomes successful when everyone knows ‘Big Picture’

Posted July 20, 2012 by by Chief Master Sgt. Bill Peck

When I enlisted in the Air Force 29 years ago, I didn’t really know my organization’s overall mission. At the time I didn’t understand what my leaders or the organization were trying to achieve. I was but one small cog in a large machine. I thought all I needed was to do what I was…

Fly Over: ‘Warm Bodies’, ‘DmC: Devil May Cry’

Posted February 8, 2013 by Jayson Burns and Staff Sgt. Jason Colbert

In theaters: ‘Warm Bodies’ Zombies are so misunderstood I’ll be honest, I groaned (pun intended) when I first heard about the new zombie-romantic comedy film, “Warm Bodies.” While I wasn’t in-line with those claiming Hollywood is trying to do to zombies what they did to vampires, I thought it made for kind of a stupid…

Fly Over: ‘Evil Dead’, and ‘Temptation: Confessions of a Marriage Counselor’

Posted April 12, 2013 by Jayson Burns and Grace Lee

In theaters: ‘Evil Dead’ Should’ve stayed that way Contrary to popular belief, not everyone goes to see a remake of a classic movie just to complain about it later. Sometimes, they want to see a movie worth the 50-cent increase in fountain drink prices. That said I was willing to give “Evil Dead” a chance,…

‘The Fall of Reach’ Prologue to groundbreaking video game I’m sure I may be a little behind the curve by recently starting the book series “Halo,” considering the first novel was released in October 2001, but in my search for a new series to read, a friend recommended it to me. He didn’t steer me…

Lead from the front

Posted October 11, 2013 by Master Sgt. CHRISTINE WAGNER

As a senior NCO, I often wonder if we are grooming our Airmen for success. Are we grooming NCOs to be responsible, to take seriously our core values, embrace them as we should so they become the future senior NCOs we need them to be? Are we grooming our Airmen to know that sometimes the…

How do we lead?

Posted December 6, 2013 by Lt. Col. DOM MARTIN

One of my favorite scenes from the movie “Independence Day” was the motivational speech by actor Bill Pullman. My wife pokes fun at me as I stop to watch it every time it comes on. As the president eloquently bellows his closing line, “Today is our Independence Day,” the background music builds to a perfectly…
