The 56th Fighter Wing routinely has approximately 300 Airmen deployed around the world in support  of the global war on terror. Though this number represents only about 5 percent of our total active duty force at Luke, the various missions performed by our Airmen down range are critical to the overall objective of putting a stop to terrorism. So

Default Air Force Logo Character of America serves to protect
The 56th Fighter Wing continues to deploy Airmen as we do our part infighting the global war on terror. I was proud and genuinely moved a few weeks ago when the Medical Group deployed our latest team of  warfighters.

Default Air Force Logo Work, family balance critical to mission success
The warriors assigned to Luke -- Airmen, civilians, active duty and Reservists -- have the distinct honor of defending our great nation. Our mission is vital and accomplishing it comes at no small price in blood, sweat and tears. We earn every bit of the compensation our country gives us, both in respect and money, but we must make sure we balance

Default Air Force Logo Being thankful for everyday life
Today, a Sunday morning, I went for a long run throughmy neighborhood in Litchfield Park, walked into my home and took a long hot shower with clean water. I just read the Sunday newspaper and an editorial page where differing views were offered -- all while enjoying a hot cup of homebrewed coffee and some toast made with fresh bread and jam. After

What do you want to be remembered for? If you passed away unexpectedly, what would your obituary say? Would your family be taken care of financially with a plan for the future? If you are single, will the state you are residing in decide where your belongings go? Or are you prepared and taking care of your responsibilities?This is quite a lot to

Default Air Force Logo Every Airman a wingman
Between staff meetings, answering taskers for the boss and drafting 1206s, I had noticed one of my young officers was more reserved than usual. I inquired of this supervisor if there had been any change in the lieutenant's job performance.I learned that while no major problems had arisen, his supervisor remarked that he often seemed to be lost in

Default Air Force Logo Family lies between lines of core values
Upon taking command of the 56th Security Forces Squadron more than two years ago, I shocked myself by stating publicly that when it comes to core values, particularly the one about service before self, that the Air Force had it wrong. At my first commander's call, I told the squadron that it should be "family before service before self." Needless

Default Air Force Logo Today's pilots mirror past
On June 20 the 309th Fighter Squadron Wild Ducks had the fortune to host a Daedalian meeting, providing young pilots a chance to interact with those who came before them. The Order of Daedalians, named for the legend of Daedalus, the first person to accomplish heavier than air flight, was formally instituted on March 26, 1934 to recognize the
