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…

Change management never easy

Posted April 19, 2013 by 2nd Lt. JOHN HOUSEMAN

Fly Over: Scary Movie V’, and Grimaldi’s Coal Brick-Oven Pizzeria

Posted April 19, 2013 by Jayson Burns and Nestor Cruz

In theaters: ‘Scary Movie V’ In desperate need of Ritalin Let me just start by saying every spoof movie that will ever come out again has already lost an approximate 40-percent chance of not being any good since the death of Leslie Nielson. However, I always have my fingers crossed for the next hilarious parody…

A good leader in our Air Force profession of arms is one who strives to live, uphold and emulate our core values – integrity first, service before self and excellence in all we do.

AF core values: Our guiding light

Posted April 12, 2013 by Tech. Sgt. BRIAN TISDALL

When someone mentions the Air Force core values, often I hear the phrase “doing the right thing when no one is around.” But that is only one of our values. There are two others that get lost in the shadow of integrity first. Service before self and excellence in all we do are often forgotten;…

“Faith makes the uplook good, the outlook bright, the inlook favorable and the future glorious.”   ~ V. Raymond Edman How does your faith make you see? Are you blind with ambition?

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,…

AF faces retention problem

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

The Air Force is facing tough times. Sequestration is forcing many of you to work overtime to run “what if” drills, cut mission essential training, forgo any real ability to plan and prepare for a potential civilian workforce furlough.
