56th CONS civilian salutes military father’s lessons

Posted June 15, 2012 by by Mary Peetz

When I was a senior in high school, my father served as the Hill Air Force Base commander. Understandably, the unwelcomed public scrutiny of a teenager’s life that occurs when your father is the base commander naturally created tension at times. As my father approaches his 80th birthday though, my reflection on that period provides…

Don’t be shy: If you write it, own it

Posted June 15, 2012 by by Maj. Allen Herritage

HILL AIR FORCE BASE, Utah — Two past stories on the Air Force’s web page drew significant reaction in the site’s comments section. Both a story on finance troops being awarded the Bronze Star Medal and the news that Air Force Space Command was ending wear of flight suits by nonaircrew personnel drove more comments than any…

Fly Over: ‘That’s My Boy’

Posted June 15, 2012 by by Macario Mora

In “That’s My Boy” Donny Burger (Adam Sandler) conquers the Mount Everest of adolescent quests – his math teacher Ms. Mary McGarricle (Eva Amurri Martino). An educator preying on her student is a serious crime, but then again what teenage boy hasn’t fantasized about a teacher or two? The difference between Donny and the rest…

Fly Over: ‘The Giant Mechanical Man’

Posted June 15, 2012 by by Capt. Tristan Hinderliter

Chris Messina is the only redeeming element (and even then, only partly redeeming) in the lackluster 2012 romantic comedy, “The Giant Mechanical Man,” an independent film that premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival in April. Messina has good on-screen presence, but unfortunately his performance doesn’t...

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…

  “The measure of a life, after all, is not its duration, but its donation.”  ~ Corrie ten Boom   What we invest in ourselves, our families, our friends, and those we supervise is part of what defines our life. How have you invested yourself? The dash between the years of birth and death tell…

Fly Over: ‘Total Money Makeover’

Posted June 8, 2012 by by Airman 1st Class Kate Vaughn

As an airman 1st class who hasn’t hit her two-year mark yet, I think it’s safe to say I can take all the financial advice I can get. I’ll admit that, but I find it difficult, okay, annoying, to listen to advice from my parents or friends. What do they know, right? Well, after running…
