Fly Over: ‘Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues’, and ‘The Legend of Hercules’

Posted January 17, 2014 by Jayson Burns and Macario Mora

In theaters: ‘Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues’ I loved 2004’s “Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy,” so much so that when I heard one of my friends had yet to see it I went out and bought it on Blu-Ray (why comedy needs to be high-def, I have no idea, but that’s beside the point)…

Posted April 18, 2014 by Maj. SEAN GIBBS

In today’s Air Force environment of force restructure, budgetary constraints, continued mission requirements and resiliency, establishing a comprehensive support system in a unit is absolutely essential for success.

Strong followers challenge authority

Posted July 25, 2014 by Lt. Col. CHARLES JONES

It’s not surprising that when I tell subordinates to challenge authority, I often get a look of confusion. Admittedly, this is a step used to provoke thought. Obviously, we don’t need subordinates undermining their leader’s authority. My intent is not to create insubordination — it is to underscore the importance of strong followership. Great leaders…

‘The butterfly effect’

Posted September 12, 2014 by Maj. HANK MCKIBBAN

Shortly after taking command, the Wild Duck Aircraft Maintenance Unit officer in charge requested I explain to his Airmen exactly what the pilots would be doing on training missions during an upcoming temporary duty. I was embarrassed that he had to ask. In this specific case, I had thoughtlessly kept these details from our closest…

Fly Over: ‘A Million Ways to Die in the West’ and ‘Home Alone′

Posted December 19, 2014 by Nestor Cruz and Devante Williams

On DVD: ‘A Million Ways to Die in the West’ I love Westerns, both dramatic and comedic, and I was eager to watch this movie with the tagline “From the guy who brought you ‘Ted.’” That alone should have been enough of a warning for me. “A Million Ways to Die in the West” is…

Decide what you like, act on it

Posted April 20, 2012 by by Master Sgt. David Garcia

Some might think that volunteering is just something people do to appease their boss. Others might think that volunteering is something people do to get promoted. Both of those thoughts might be true, but the main reason people volunteer is because it makes the base, town and the world a better place. It also makes…

Like Boy Scouts, be prepared

Posted June 8, 2012 by by Chief Master Sgt. Scott Leach

The Air Force does a great job in preparing Airmen when a deployment tasking comes down. Our members perform weapons qualification, ancillary training and even enact wills and powers-of-attorney for family members. The irony of this issue is that we do this to get ready for a deployment, but many Airmen forget to stay prepared…
