Communication: the great equalizer

Posted February 15, 2013 by Master Sgt. DOUGLAS MCGRAW

More than 70 years ago, over the skies of England, a mighty duel in the sky took place, the Battle of Britain. British Prime Minister Winston Churchill was quoted as saying, “never in the field of conflict was so much owed by so many to so few.” Churchill’s statement couldn’t be any more true today…

Chaplain thoughts

Posted April 19, 2013 by Chaplain (Lt. Col.) Theadore Wilson,

More importantly, where do you find hope? Hope is much more than just desiring a good outcome to an event. Psalm 33:20 teaches…

Fly Over: ‘The Man of Steel’, and ‘This is the End’

Posted June 14, 2013 by Macario Mora

In theaters: ‘The Man of Steel’ Anyone expecting “The Man of Steel” to be on par with Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy will be disappointed, though it tried mightily.

Fly Over: ‘Call of Duty – Ghosts’, and ‘Oldboy’

Posted December 6, 2013 by Tristan Hinderliter and Devante Williams

In stores: ‘Call of Duty – Ghosts’ While “Call of Duty” often gets scolded for its rinse-and-repeat gameplay, I’ve always defended the series and given previous games a thumbs-up for enhancing the gameplay. Whether it’s the storytelling of “Modern Warfare” or the effort to change the COD formula with “Black Ops,” the popular series always…

Posted May 30, 2014 by Master Sgt. TOMMY CHILDERS

“You never get a second chance at a first impression.” – Unknown While this saying holds true in many facets of our daily lives, it carries an increased weight and sense of responsibility for us as service members.

Your career – as easy as 1, 2, 3

Posted July 18, 2014 by Master Sgt. BRIAN LYNCH

Oftentimes at retirements we hear the phrase, “This is one chapter in my life.” No matter what our goal is, whether it is to serve for four years or 20 years, each of us will leave the Air Force at some point. This leads to the question, “What does it take to have an Air…
