Airmen taking care of Airmen May 7, 2010 — The Air Force Assistance Fund campaign is quickly coming to an end. Langley's drive was scheduled to run from March 29 to May 7; however, we have extended the drive until May 20. The AFAF is an annual, on-the-job fundraising campaign conducted amongst Air Force personnel for the benefit of Airmen and their families.There are four charities included MORE

Do you serve in the company of heroes? April 23, 2010 — One of my favorite scenes from "A Band of Brothers" is the story told at the end of the film when a World War II veteran was asked by his grandson if he was a hero in the war. His reply was no, but that he served in the company of heroes. That answer resonates with me and makes me think how lucky I am, and we all are, to serve in the company of MORE

Exercise for the serious athlete April 20, 2010 — For those who exercise for more than 90 minutes per day, it is important to take nutrition habits seriously. Marathon runners, elite athletes, body builders and recreational sports participants put their bodies through the stresses of exercise and energy depletion. Extra attention must be given to replenish fluids, energy stores and protein. MORE

Don’t Be A Bystander April 16, 2010 — Bystanders are just that -- people that know something is happening but fail to act to stop it. What hurts one, hurts all. Sexual assault is a serious crime, even if the victim engaged in behaviors that might seem "risky". "No" does not mean "maybe." Sexual assault continues to be the most under-reported crime in America and the military is no MORE

Changing your life through spiritual fitness April 12, 2010 — I have a poster on my wall with a prayer from the first president and commander-in-chief, Gen. George Washington. His words represent timeless wisdom and perspective. In Washington's Valley Forge prayer, he prayed, asking God to strengthen and guide the hearts of all Americans toward peaceful obedience to government and brotherly love one for one MORE

Year of the Air Force Family: Team Based Care April 8, 2010 — When you ask someone what they think of when they hear the word "team," most people immediately respond with a sports-related reference. In sports, good teams are those that work well together. The best teams are winners -- they are champions. But a team can really be any strong group of individuals coming together to achieve a common goal. One of MORE

Leadership: Business of 'people improvement' April 6, 2010 — As senior noncommissioned officers, NCOs and supervisors, we are in the people improvement business. We take on the roles of personal trainer, life coach and motivational speaker. You are the CEO of your people improvement business. You have years of experience in these disciplines to pass down to Airmen. Are you doing the right thing to make your MORE

Joint basing provides support equal to service April 5, 2010 — In January, Fort Eustis took the first formal steps toward joint basing when we activated the 733d Mission Support Group and Joint Base Langley-Eustis officially began Initial Operational Capability. Some base operations functions shifted to the 633d Air Base Wing staff in order to allow them to start functioning as a wing and provide staff MORE

Standards: Are they just things we comply with at work? March 26, 2010 — Every job has standards or rules that govern what we do in that line of work and when we're going to do it. For those of us who've worn a uniform in our nation's armed forces, past or present, the standards are usually defined initially at Basic Military Training. As new recruits, we live and breathe these standards day and night; failure to do so MORE

Reporting suspicious activity February 25, 2010 — Following every terrorist attack in recent history, post-attack investigations all reveal the attackers engaged in a sequence of events in preparation for the final attack. The sequence of events are known as observable planning activities.As you read this, somewhere in the world terrorists are conducting these activities in preparation for a MORE
