Posted May 24, 2012 by by Macario Mora

Watching a film is like reading a book in that viewing a motion picture accomplishes one of two goals — the film entertains or stimulates the viewer intellectually. Occasionally, a movie accomplishes both. “Harold and Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay,” does not. However, anyone familiar with…

It’s your career…take care of it

Posted May 18, 2012 by by Master Sgt. Christopher B. Huard

There once was a time where you could safely assume that if you did a decent job and stayed out of trouble you could carry your career out until 20 years or more and retire. If you had a few bumps in the road or slowly progressed through the ranks, no worries, your retirement was…

Fly Over: ‘Across the Universe’

Posted May 18, 2012 by by Macario Mora

“You either get tired fighting for peace, or you die.” – John Lennon I’m rarely at a loss for words, rarely unable to detail my thoughts or express my views.
