Motivation: Starts with a goal

Posted May 10, 2013 by Tech. Sgt. JUAN HORTA

Last week when I visited family in California, my father mentioned to a family friend that I was in the Air Force. After exchanging pleasantries, he asked me how long I had been in the military, and I said, “Nine and a half years.” He fired back to me with a question that I hadn’t…

Fly Over: The Great Gatsby’, and ‘Iron Man 3′

Posted May 10, 2013 by Macario Mora and Staff Sgt. Nestor Cruz

In theaters: ‘The Great Gatsby’ Baz Luhrmann’s adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s “The Great Gatsby,” won’t go down as the definitive version of the classic of American letters, which is the fourth film to date, but it was certainly a lot of fun. Initially I was a bit confused why Fitzgerald’s drama would require 3-D;…

Chaplain thoughts

Posted May 3, 2013 by Chaplain (Capt.) Joseph Fisher,

Fly Over: ‘Breaking Bad’, and ‘Hounded’ The Iron Druid Chronicles

Posted May 3, 2013 by Grace Lee and Christopher Hatch

On Netflix: ‘Breaking Bad’ Personally, I’m not the type to watch a television drama series unless it’s Korean drama, but since “Breaking Bad” was on the Netflix “top watched list,” I decided to give it a chance.

Posted April 26, 2013 by Jayson Burns and Master Sgt. Cindy Dorfner

For Xbox 360 and Playstation 3: ‘Injustice: Gods Among Us’ NetherRealm is still in the game I am a huge fan of fighting games, particularly the “Mortal Kombat” series. This was a little difficult for me during the latter part of the Midway publishing era, when the “MK” designers were rushed into releasing mediocre installments….
