Making challenges into opportunities, hard work

Posted March 29, 2013 by by Senior Master Sgt. SANDRA NUNES

We all ask, “What’s the secret to success?” I wish I knew the answer, although my standard reply is “hard work.” Hard work may sound simplistic, but trust me, it stems from a lifetime of trying harder.

Posted May 31, 2013 by Master Sgt. Ida Bushey

I have always enjoyed running. In elementary school, I won countless field-day blue ribbons for fastest runner. In high school I ran track and cross country. Cross country quickly became my favorite.

Determination

Posted September 20, 2013 by Senior Airman Liam Milburn

Having a goal and a road map on how to attain that goal is admirable; however, unless there is motivation to continue with that goal, it will fail. Most of us who joined the military did so with a long-term goal in mind. A common reason is the education benefits. Even with the new stipulations…

Fly Over: ‘Age of Ra’, and ‘American Hustle’

Posted January 24, 2014 by Jayson Burns and Grace Lee

In print: ‘Age of Ra’ Some may remember my review of James Lovegrove’s science fiction novel “Age of Aztec,” which had a premise of an Aztecan future too awesome to fail.

Drawdowns make communication vital

Posted March 7, 2014 by Chief Master Sgt. MICHAEL BROWN

In 1991, I departed Saudi Arabia post Operation Desert Storm.
