I have the best job in the Air Force, and I've had it 14 times in my career.Soon to be 15, as a matter of fact.

Default Air Force Logo 56th CONS civilian salutes military father’s lessons
When I was a senior in high school, my father served as the Hill Air Force Base commander.Understandably, the unwelcomed public scrutiny of a teenager's life that occurs when your father is the base commander naturally created tension at times. As my father approaches his 80th birthday though, my reflection on that period provides a greater

Default Air Force Logo Like Boy Scouts, be prepared
The Air Force does a great job in preparing Airmen when a deployment tasking comes down. Our members perform weapons qualification, ancillary training and even enact wills and powers-of-attorney for family members.

Default Air Force Logo Newcomers train from get-go
I have the great honor and privilege of commanding the 56th Maintenance Operations Squadron, aka Team Roadrunner -- "beep beep!" Over the last 24 years I have learned a thing or two that I usually share with my new squadron teammates at our monthly newcomers' orientation.

Default Air Force Logo It’s your career…take care of it
There once was a time where you could safely assume that if you did a decent job and stayed out of trouble you could carry your career out until 20 years or more and retire. If you had a few bumps in the road or slowly progressed through the ranks, no worries, your retirement was all but guaranteed. Those days are long gone. In today's Air Force
