Default Air Force Logo Lorenz on Leadership - It's all about service
A few weeks ago, Staff Sgt. Sarah Price worked diligently as a radar approach control (RAPCON) controller within the 71st Operations Group at Vance Air Force Base, Okla. If anyone had asked her what she did, her response would have been simple and quick, "I control aircraft." No one would argue the importance of her job, especially since it

Default Air Force Logo Security clearance not to be taken for granted
Most of us know that having a security clearance is very important to getting and keeping a job in the Air Force. Most Air Force career fields require access to classified information. Specific and stringent policies are established to determine whether a person is eligible for access to classified information or assignment to sensitive duties. The

Default Air Force Logo Lorenz on Leadership: Creating candor
03/23/09 - RANDOLPH AIR FORCE BASE, Texas -- If you ever have the chance to observe a flight debrief after a training sortie, you should jump at the chance. You will witness something special.

Default Air Force Logo How capable for combat are you?
A fighter squadron commander is writing an article for the base paper. Here we go ... jets, bombs, leather jackets, sunglasses, egos and, "There I was ...," stories. Nope, not this time! This short diatribe is about taking a self assessment of your ability to not only execute your specific job but also perform other combat tasks in support of our

Default Air Force Logo Right is right
Thunderbolts please bear with me for a moment while I get on a soapbox... There are accepted "right" things that we do in our profession like saying, please, thank you, yes sir and no ma'am, and saluting Old Glory at 5 p.m. We know it's right to be a good wingman ... to look out for each other. We know it's not right to be rude or to wait inside a

Default Air Force Logo 'Join' ... for success
It's the New Year and many of you have made resolutions to make 2009 the best year of your life. Making resolutions and keeping them are two separate and distinct actions. While it's possible to make significant changes in your life, it's not easy - that's why they're called resolutions. You'll need a lot of resolve to see it through. Instead of

Default Air Force Logo Get educated on being best Airman possible
We frequently hear the phrase "educate yourself" in the Air Force. When I say to my Airmen to educate yourself, I'm not referring to on-the-job training or off-duty education. Not that those aren't important, but I mean educating yourself on information out there pertinent to you as the lowest Airman, first-line supervisor, junior NCO, seasoned

That's what retired Air Force Lieutenant General Harry Raduege, Jr., writes in an insightful article about cyberspace titled, "Evolving Cybersecurity Faces a New Dawn."

Default Air Force Logo Air Force Instructions are back to basics
As the 56th Fighter Wing prepares for the upcoming operational readiness inspection in May we will all review our inspection checklists to ensure compliance and mission readiness. One of the unstated benefits of higher headquarters inspections is getting back to basics; the inspection forces us to spend time reviewing the applicable Air Force

Default Air Force Logo Leadership is action, not position
I recently read an article that had a quote I believe defines a true leader. The quote, "Leadership is action, not position," is from Donald McGannon. This phrase epitomizes my leadership philosophy. I feel people are leaders by virtue of what they do, not the authority they are given or the duty title they hold. There are three basic principles
