Leadership vs. management

Posted December 12, 2014 by Master Sgt. CINDY SPIVEY

Have you ever had a boss or someone that made you want to come to work every day, someone you would do anything for without question? Then you were probably working beside a leader, not a manager. The biggest difference between managers and leaders is the way they motivate people who work for or follow…

Fly Over: The Hunger Games

Posted April 13, 2012 by Denise Willhite

The Hunger Games, a sci-fi novel, is the first book in “The Hunger Games” series by Suzanne Collins and was released in 2008. The Hunger Games is written for the young adult, which is not my age group, but I found myself unable to put it down and stayed up all night reading it. It was an easy read and fast-paced.

Newcomers train from get-go

Posted June 1, 2012 by by Maj. Chistopher Chestnut

I have the great honor and privilege of commanding the 56th Maintenance Operations Squadron, aka Team Roadrunner — “beep beep!” Over the last 24 years I have learned a thing or two that I usually share with my new squadron teammates at our monthly newcomers’ orientation.

Posted July 13, 2012 by by Lt. Col. Sean Routier

The U.S. Air Force and military as a whole face a challenging future. They are fiscally constrained, resource constrained and in the process of restructuring the military and civilian force.

Chaplain thoughts – November 2

Posted November 2, 2012 by Chaplain (Lt. Col.) Theadore Wilson,

“Heroes never die. They live on forever in the hearts and minds of those who would follow in their footsteps.” ~ Emily Potter As we approach Veteran’s Day, I want to continue the theme of “heroes.” What do you do to actively “live” in the footsteps of those we honor as heroes? Are we truly…

Fly Over: ‘Broken City’, ‘Mistborn: The Final Empire’

Posted January 25, 2013 by Jayson Burns and Staff Sgt. Jason Colbert

In theaters: ‘Broken City’ Personally, I occasionally have a hard time following plots that involve politics or business, mostly due to all of the little technical details that get thrown around. Because of that, I can get disinterested fairly quickly while watching these movies. Fortunately for Broken City, despite some of these same issues, its…

AF faces retention problem

Posted April 5, 2013 by Lt. Col. SEAN ROUTIER

Fly Over: ‘The Way Way Back’, and ‘The Wolverine’

Posted August 2, 2013 by Jayson Burns and Nestor Cruz

‘The Way Way Back’ I didn’t like “The Way Way Back,” but in all fairness, I’m not the intended audience for this film. I like serious movies for adults, usually of the R-rated variety, and I often prefer those that explore the dark, violent side of human nature. This is not one of those movies…
