Dollars and Sense

Posted July 25, 2014 by 56th Comptroller Squadron

Understanding the benefits of compounding are important. Would you rather take $1 million today, or take one cent today with a payment every day for 30 days, each payment doubling from the previous day’s amount? A wise person would take the penny today, because the compounding impact of doubling the previous amount results in a…

Advise Airmen of rights before asking questions

Posted September 12, 2014 by Master Sgt. ERIK BENSEN

Every day supervisors are faced with challenging scenarios and situations that require them to engage in efforts to help their Airmen. When this engagement is due to a negative act such as theft, damage to property or other possible legal violations, we must resist the instinct to question them directly. One scenario I am presented…

Have you heard the phrase “don’t burn your bridges?” This idiom is used to describe the importance of not ending a relationship on a bad note. In this case, the relationship is your military career.

Fly Over: ‘Young Adult’

Posted April 27, 2012 by by Capt. Tristan Hinderliter

Charlize Theron is tremendous as the gorgeous but deeply troubled antihero of “Young Adult,” a dark comedy with a hard edge by director Jason Reitman. The screenplay was written by Academy Award-winner Diablo Cody, but fans of “Juno” beware: this is no quirky, light-hearted comedy. Cody’s brutally honest script pulls no punches. Although unsympathetic, Theron…

Fly Over: ‘The Giant Mechanical Man’

Posted June 15, 2012 by by Capt. Tristan Hinderliter

Chris Messina is the only redeeming element (and even then, only partly redeeming) in the lackluster 2012 romantic comedy, “The Giant Mechanical Man,” an independent film that premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival in April.

Fly Over: ‘The Woman in Black’, ‘The Master’

Posted September 21, 2012 by by Jason Burns and Macario Mora

On DVD: ‘The Woman in Black’ by Jayson Burns Despite being a big fan of horror movies, I don’t immediately jump to see every single one that hits the theaters. However, when I saw that ghostly face materialize right beside Daniel Radcliff at the end of the trailer for “The Woman in Black,” I knew…

What does ‘Old Glory’ mean?

Posted November 9, 2012 by Master Sgt. SHERIS POISSON

In any society, its heritage or legacy is fashioned and passed on by each generation. The Air Force is no different. The Air Force is a society and each new generation of Airmen has the duty and responsibility of carrying on the heritage. As leaders, you must celebrate our rich history and ensure the newest…

Who, what do you serve?

Posted February 8, 2013 by Lt. Col. SHAMSHER MANN

How many articles are there in the Constitution of the United States of America? How many times has the Constitution been amended? Why do we have an Air Force when only an Army and Navy are specifically mentioned in the Constitution? If you do not know the answer to these questions, I would submit to…
