Dollars and Sense

Posted July 25, 2014 by 56th Comptroller Squadron

Understanding the benefits of compounding are important. Would you rather take $1 million today, or take one cent today with a payment every day for 30 days, each payment doubling from the previous day’s amount? A wise person would take the penny today, because the compounding impact of doubling the previous amount results in a…

Advise Airmen of rights before asking questions

Posted September 12, 2014 by Master Sgt. ERIK BENSEN

Every day supervisors are faced with challenging scenarios and situations that require them to engage in efforts to help their Airmen. When this engagement is due to a negative act such as theft, damage to property or other possible legal violations, we must resist the instinct to question them directly.

Situational awareness

Posted February 27, 2015 by Master Sgt. BRANDON CHRISTIAN

Throughout my career, the importance of situational awareness has been driven into my head. This became exceedingly clear to me when I landed in Tabuk, Saudi Arabia. It was March 17, 2003, about 48 hours until Operation Iraqi Freedom kicked off. We were busy building tents, making bunkers and preparing to execute the mission. Doing…

Fly Over: ‘Young Adult’

Posted April 27, 2012 by by Capt. Tristan Hinderliter

Charlize Theron is tremendous as the gorgeous but deeply troubled antihero of “Young Adult,” a dark comedy with a hard edge by director Jason Reitman. The screenplay was written by Academy Award-winner Diablo Cody, but fans of “Juno” beware: this is no quirky, light-hearted comedy. Cody’s brutally honest script pulls no punches. Although unsympathetic, Theron…

Fly Over: ‘The Giant Mechanical Man’

Fly Over: ‘The Amazing Spider-Man’

Posted July 27, 2012 by By Senior Airman C.J. Hatch

Did we want a new Spider-Man movie? Not really. Did we need to see the origin story redone? Possibly. Did that stop the movie from being amazing? No.
