Kids and deployments December 5, 2011 — Deployments can be stressful for everyone - the active duty member, the spouse, family members, the children and even the family pets. Trying to get everything ready for the deployment can take its toll, but it can sometimes distract families from the inevitable reality that they will be temporarily separated. When we deal with the immediate MORE

PSU scandal shows why integrity preached in military November 17, 2011 — Legendary former head football coach of the Pennsylvania State University Nittany Lions Joe Paterno showed a lack of integrity. There's a sentence I never thought I'd type or see in print. After all, "JoePa" had been the school's head coach for 46 years. Paterno, the all-time FBS leader in victories with 409, had been the figurehead who was so MORE

Thank a veteran November 7, 2011 — A few days ago I stopped by the grocery store to pick up a few items after work. A lady stopped me on my way out of the store."Excuse me, I'd like to say something to you," the woman said. She said "thank you." She thanked me for my service and for her and her family's freedom, and told me to be safe no matter where in the world I was located. MORE

Energy Action Month – How our choices affect the big picture October 31, 2011 — It's the last week of Energy Action Month. Last week we learned how we can make certain choices in our energy use to make significant differences in our nation's energy demand. That "cultural change" is already happening all around us. Fortunately, not any one group of people has to take on the cultural change alone. All of us are doing it. We are MORE

Contractors integral to government success October 19, 2011 — Do you know that contractors have become an integral part of government activities? It is often difficult, however, to distinguish between contractors and civil service employees. Government employees work side by side with many of the contractor employees, often times who were once government employees themselves, such as retirees, former military MORE

Effectively using renewable energy October 6, 2011 — Last week we learned how we can make certain choices in our energy use to make significant differences in our nation's energy demand. How we manage our energy demand affects our energy supply as well. This week we will look at where we get our energy from or the supply side of the equation. First, let us divide our energy supplies between MORE

As energy demand increases, efficiency is critical (2) October 6, 2011 — So, what is energy demand? Demand is everybody's part of the energy equation. Whatever the kind of energy, use is called demand. Turn on a light at home and that's 14 watts of demand. (You do use compact fluorescents, don't you?) Start up the air conditioning system on base and it demands between .6 and 1.2 kilowatts per ton of cooling. Your MORE

October is Energy Action Month October 6, 2011 — It's that time of year when we begin to really think about the energy we use. The days are getting shorter and our lights are on longer. The nights are a little brisker, and toward the end of the month some of us may turn the heat on. Just as in the spring when we prepare our work places, homes and cars for warm weather, we now prepare for the MORE

Honoring those who died by the way we live September 8, 2011 — In remembering days like Sept. 11, the question we often ask each other is "Where were you that day?" Maybe we should ask each other another question instead--"How have the events of that day inspired you to invest in your community and your country?"That may sound blunt, especially to my fellow Airmen and Soldiers. After all, we have all taken the MORE

Take advantage of training opportunities early in your career June 22, 2011 — The Air Force provides some of the best training in the world, building Airmen into highly-skilled technical experts. This begins in basic training and technical schools, where we learn our trade, followed by on-the-job training and professional military education. Airmen continue honing their craft throughout their careers.However, while some MORE

The flightline can be a dangerous place as a recent visitor to JBLE learned the hard way. As he ventured closer to the most lethal fighter jet on the planet, this fellow flier was faced with his own mortality. This cautionary tale serves as a frightening reminder to always practice situational awareness.
Tonight, Fort Eustis hosted its annual Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony, featuring carols performed by the TRADOC Band, local Girl Scouts, and the Woodside High School Select Women’s Ensemble. Santa and Mrs. Claus even paid the post a visit, wishing Happy Holidays to all!
