I give to the CFC because my brother deserves it October 9, 2012 — The annual Combined Federal Campaign is the largest workplace charity campaign in the United States, and raises millions of dollars each year to support charities worldwide. With the CFC donation season in full swing, I can't help but remember why I give. As a child, I lost my younger brother, Matthew, to a battle against childhood leukemia. The MORE

Transitioning to the civilian workforce is a full-time job October 1, 2012 — Wow! I can't believe it. Retirement is here. We all know this day will come. Kenny Chesney says in his song "Don't Blink," "100 years goes faster than you think."For active-duty military, 20 years goes faster than you think.The question then becomes, "how prepared are you to transition from military life and head into the civilian workforce?" The MORE

My biggest mistake as an Airman - a new car September 27, 2012 — During the last two weeks, I have heard two separate stories about Airmen purchasing overpriced cars, with loans at ridiculously high interest rates. When I hear these stories I can't help but think about the first major mistake I made as a brand new Airman - a mistake that cost me almost $100,000 15 years later.As a newly minted Airman 1st Class, MORE

Information assurance = mission assurance September 24, 2012 — What is information assurance? Many of us look at information assurance as a buzzword the Air Force likes to throw around that has something to do with computers and the internet. To many it is just an annoying training which has to be completed every year. However, the truth is information assurance is one of the single-greatest means of MORE

Toeing the line on standards September 19, 2012 — For the past four years of my career, as a first sergeant, I have heard the words, "but Shirt - he's a good guy" far too many times. Whether it was for a failed physical training test or substandard performance of non commissioned officer responsibilities, the same statement would pop up time and again. One would think these words would have been MORE

The Oath of Enlistment, what does it mean? September 6, 2012 — The other day I was reviewing Air Force Instruction 1-1, Air Force Standards, when I came across the Oath of Enlistment. Immediately I thought to myself, the oath is a major part of who we are in the military. It forms the bedrock of what we stand for and are willing to fight for. But I wonder if some of us who say those words that form the oath MORE

Eliminating our biases... embracing our diversity September 6, 2012 — Several weeks ago, a colleague of mine told me about leading a program at the local community center. Prior to the program's start, she went to the lobby to wait for a pizza delivery. For roughly 15 minutes, she was looking for a short male of Hispanic descent, wearing loose jeans. Finally, a tall, fair-skinned gentleman waiting next to her spoke MORE

Fight the flu by prepping for flu season August 22, 2012 — With flu season rapidly approaching, the time to start preparing is now. The 633rd Medical Group has prepared some helpful information to help protect people from catching the flu.The flu is a contagious respiratory illness caused by influenza viruses that infect the nose, throat and lungs. It can cause mild to severe illness, and in some cases MORE

My job is prosecuting sexual assault August 17, 2012 — Here's a simple truth...sexual offenders reject our core values of integrity, service and excellence, in favor of following their own base, undisciplined, criminal desires. Most sexual assaults committed by Airmen are "blue on blue," or Airmen victimizing other Airmen. So in addition to rejecting our core values, these undisciplined Airmen reject MORE

Sic transit gloria mundi August 13, 2012 — All the senior airmen in my office nervously huddled around a single computer as we nervously awaited the staff sergeant promotion results to be released. No one moved - no one even breathed. We were all transfixed as the audible mouse click echoed throughout the room, signifying each time the website was refreshed.Of course the internet broke as 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!
