Posted September 28, 2012 by Courtesy of Chaplain (Lt. Col.) Theadore Wilson

“Continue steadfast and, with a proper sense of your dependence on God, nobly defend those rights which heaven gave, and no man ought to take from us.” ~ John Hancock Imagine that just by signing your name to a document in essence you were signing your own death sentence. That is the price that John…

Fly Over: ‘Skyfall’, ‘Resident Evil: Damnation’

Posted November 16, 2012 by Macario Mora and Jayson Burns

In Theaters: ‘Skyfall’ I’m young, relatively, so I can admit my first James Bond movie starred Pierce Brosnan. The franchise has rolled out 23 installments in 50 years, so I’d be remiss to say I’ve seen every film. I hear Mr. Connery was as good as it gets, but “Skyfall” on its own, is one…

Fly Over: ‘A Good Day to Die Hard’, ‘Django Unchained’

Posted February 22, 2013 by Jayson Burns and Grace Lee

In theaters: ‘A Good Day to Die Hard’ Well, actually hard to die at all Whenever someone lists of the greatest action movies of all time (and, in some cases, greatest Christmas movies of all time), the original “Die Hard” tends to be on that list and with good reason. However, the sequels, to my…

We can learn from history

Posted April 19, 2013 by Maj. JAMES SCHIESER

The philosopher, essayist, poet and novelist George Santayana once said, “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.” This quote is more popularly credited to Sir Winston Churchill, “Those that fail to learn from history, are doomed to repeat it.” The point isn’t so much who said what as much as the…

What’s in a name? Power, pride, identity

Posted August 23, 2013 by Maj. MELINDA SANTOS

Was Shakespeare mistaken when he wrote the above words for Juliet to speak? Studies have shown there is preference in a name. Attractive or popular names affect our attitudes and expectations about their owners. It may also lead to high self-esteem and high self-esteem yields achievement motivation. People can be partial to their alma mater,…

Fly Over: ‘Ip Man’, and ‘Grand Theft Auto 5′

Posted October 18, 2013 by Grace Lee and Devante Williams

‘Ip Man’ Being the Netflixer I am today, I came across a movie named “Ip Man” and honestly, I just looked at the high rating it earned and decided to watch it. “Ip Man” is a film from Hong Kong and is, to some extent, based on the life of Yip Man, grandmaster of the…

Be prepared

Posted December 13, 2013 by Col. CONSTANCE JACKSON

Leading Airmen happens at every level and preparation is the key to success. A couple of weeks ago I watched two Airmen lead the clinic through resiliency training. As I looked at the members of the family health clinic I felt many things. The medics unabashedly participated in the training led by two Airmen who…

Courtesy photo Dr. Mae Jemison “Never be limited by other people’s limited imaginations.” ~ Dr. Mae Jemison Has anyone ever told you that you couldn’t do something because you lacked the skills or talent?

‘Burn the boats’

Posted March 28, 2014 by Maj. DAVID LEMERY

Though I have read a little about history and a little more about business and leadership, the first time I heard the expression, “Burn the boats,” was just a few weeks ago. It prompted me to look into this theory a little further. The phrase is most attributed to Spanish Conquistador Hernando Cortez when he…
