Teamwork; on duty and on the court May 21, 2012 — A few weeks ago, the Airman Leadership School residents played the Langley First Sergeants and Langley Chiefs Group in a customary volleyball game. Not that I am bragging, but I knew what the result would be before we even started the game. I was confident that a win for the SHIRTS and CHIEFS would be the result, because history has a way of MORE

They are ALL Your Airmen! May 14, 2012 — How many times have you heard someone say, "That senior Airman's not wearing his hat in the parking lot." Or "That tech sergeant just ran inside because reveille is about to sound."? I bet at some point, a comment was made similar to, "I wonder who his supervisor is?" Or maybe, "Master Sgt. Smith is his boss. I'll let him know what I saw." There is MORE

Time to change our EPR culture April 26, 2012 — The second I pinned on staff sergeant I knew I could do it. I could be the NCO the Air Force wanted me to be. I could write fair enlisted performance reports and prove the naysayers in airman leadership school wrong. Sure, what we learned might "not be the way it's done in the real Air Force," but that didn't mean it couldn't be. I was going to MORE

Protect the Earth, it's the only one we have April 16, 2012 — The essence of Earth Day revolves around the philosophy of "sustainability." There is only one Earth and somehow, someway, we must figure out how to make it last to sustain life. In the last several decades, there has emerged a realization that resources are not unlimited. Supply of critical resources, such as oil and rare earth metals, are already MORE

Be proud of your occupational badge, wear it March 19, 2012 — As I walk around various installations, I notice many Airmen don't wear their occupational badge. I know, according to AFI 36-2903, Dress and Personal Appearance of Air Force Personnel, Airmen aren't required to wear it, but I encourage them to do so. First, your occupational badge is an insignia representing your career field. Your career field MORE

Base operations in a lean budget environment March 13, 2012 — If you're like me and have been watching the news in the last six months, you've probably heard the Air Force is facing some significant budget reductions for at least the next several fiscal years.

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!
