Default Air Force Logo Leadership's responsibility to ensure safe driving
The past several months have not been kind to government vehicles. A rash of government-owned vehicle accidents has plagued the base and the majority of these could have been prevented.

A little more than a year ago I had the great opportunity to attend the AETC Commanders' Course.

Default Air Force Logo Our world needs heroes

Default Air Force Logo We are all Airmen...Period!
I've never had the option of choosing who I wanted to supervise. I've never been allowed to conduct interviews for possible coworkers. If given the option, I would not be able to choose, or not choose, a subordinate or coworker by the type of music they listen to, where they were born, or what they like to do for a hoppy.
