It's My Base It's 'my' base
I have the best job in the Air Force. As the support group deputy, I get to enable the wing mission and I look forward to working at "my" base every day.

What is courage? The American Heritage Dictionary defines it as "the state or quality of mind or spirit that enables one to face danger, fear, or vicissitudes with self- possession, confidence and resolution." July 4 was a profound date for all of us, and it was fantastic we got to celebrate and commemorate our 231-year history as a nation.
