Default Air Force Logo First Sgt. speed mentoring – it’s worth it
In the Air Force, professional development is a crucial part of becoming a good leader and getting promoted. That said, it doesn’t usually sound like an enjoyable time. When my leadership said, “This would be a great opportunity for you, you should go!” (Which really meant ‘hey you’re going to this and you’re going to do it with a smile like a good

Default Air Force Logo Redefining our Success
What does the word success mean to you? For me, the word traps us without even defining itself.

I wake up every morning, get ready and drive to the base for work. This is my every day routine and once I arrive to the base, I patiently wait in line to hand my ID to the gate guard. I then drive through without a second thought about the daily challenges these men and women have to overcome. I recently had the opportunity to step back from my

(U.S. Air Force photo by 2nd Lt. Nikita Thorpe) The journey to what I thought was the finish line
Being introduced to the military when I was 12 years old was one of the best things that could have happened to me and has had a lasting impact on my answer to this question, “What do I want to do in my life?” The lifestyle, comradery and security of being in the military was exactly what I wanted for myself. I had no doubt I would achieve this as

While entering the base the other day, I was greeted by a young Airman who politely said, “Welcome to F.E.

Being in that dental chair can combine all your fears in one visit…pain, needles, blood, drilling and loud unfamiliar noises. These things have definitely caused me to be apprehensive about making a dental appointment in the past. I can honestly say that is

You’re probably wondering how someone could be thanking God that they failed a test, much more a physical training test where it seems as though your whole Air Force career could be on the line. However, sometimes things happen in our lives that later on we look back and realize made us a better person or possibly
