Posted June 14, 2013 by Capt. JENNIFER PREYER

We can all agree that 2013 has been a challenging year. Budget uncertainty, looming sequestration and potential furloughs have forced change to normal operations.

Lesson learned from bag of peanuts

Posted August 16, 2013 by Lt. Col. (Dr.) SHAYNE STOKES

Life lessons are sometimes learned in the most unexpected places. Like most, I’ve worked for and learned from leaders and mentors with different leadership styles. I’ve learned that there is a time and place for all styles of leadership. However, John Maxwell was spot on in his “21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership” when he stated…

Dollars and Sense

Posted February 7, 2014 by 56th Comptroller Squadron

When considering separation programs that offer voluntary separation pay, Airmen should also consider the impact federal and state tax deductions has on the calculation. These tax deductions will reduce the actual amount you receive and could also have significant tax implications when filing 2014 taxes. The fiscal 2014 VSP program entitles enlisted retention board-eligible Airmen…

Fly Over: ’300: Rise of an Empire’, and ‘Brokeback Mountain’

Posted March 21, 2014 by Jayson Burns and Grace Lee

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. Yet, this past weekend I found myself dumbfounded. I turned to my lady friend, disregarding the popcorn kernels wedged between my teeth and butter freshly splattered on my t-shirt…
