  • Commentary: Critical thinking is the way of the future

    Many people in leadership positions, be it military or civilian, say education is the way of the future and believe through education problems can be solved, efficiency improved and the mission completed.

  • Character

    Character is what's deep inside each of us, it’s who we are on a daily basis, it's who we are when things go well and more importantly, when things go wrong.

    With the multitude of professional development courses we as Airmen attend, I just wanted to hit on some regularly discussed leadership behaviors. That said, we should also be striving to improve as we grow as leaders at all levels. These tips can be helpful whether you are leading peers or subordinates. Actively working on the following behaviors
  • Looking back: Industrial Revolution

    The Industrial Revolution changed the economic systems of the world. Without this transition in technology, our military wouldn't be the same today. Europe was the first to thrive in this new revolution through economic and social reforms starting in the 1850s and quickly spread around the world. People became richer and people were able to work
  • Breaking 90%

    "Lee, get off my track!" the instructor yelled. The time clock showed that 21 minutes had passed. Everyone in my flight was finished with the mile and a half run except me. I didn't finish. Before that we had been mock tested on the sit-up and push-up portion of the test. I performed six sit-ups and zero push-ups--zero! I could not believe I was
