Posted December 13, 2013 by Master Sgt. ERIC GRAY

Posted December 13, 2013 by Macario Mora and Jason Colbert

In theaters: ‘Frozen’ It’s not often that a movie enthralls you to such a degree, and captivates your heart and imagination at such a level, that you’re still humming the music and replaying the scenes in your head a day later.

How do we lead?

Posted December 6, 2013 by Lt. Col. DOM MARTIN

One of my favorite scenes from the movie “Independence Day” was the motivational speech by actor Bill Pullman. My wife pokes fun at me as I stop to watch it every time it comes on.
