At 34-years-old, most individuals are not thinking of placing their professional civilian career on hold to join the military. However, on May 11, 2010 that is exactly what I did when I enlisted with the United States Air Force Reserve at Joint Base Charleston, S.C. - I have not looked back.I did not take the frequently traveled path to become a

As commander of the 315th Airlift Wing here I sometimes wonder how many people actually know what we, in the Air Force Reserve, bring to the fight.

We

Default Air Force Logo Afghanistan through the lens
I often see the world in 1/250th of a second slice, or a single click of a camera's shutter. In that instant I'm able to capture a moment in time and record it in history. As the photographer for Kapisa Provincial Reconstruction Team in Afghanistan, my job is to tell a visual story that encompasses multiple cultures, generations, and a

In July, the new Air Force Fitness program became the standard by which we all will be monitored to ensure our health, wellness and fitness to fight. The twice-a-year assessment, arguably a more stringent evaluation, has generated some grumbling among the ranks. Rather than curse our luck, let's take a look at what the assessments are meant to

Social Revolution Elementarily speaking, military members are heroes
As a lowly 2nd lieutenant, I don't receive many speaking invitations.And by not many, I mean none.The fact is, most folks would rather hear the introspective thoughts of a colonel, a general or a senior non-commissioned officer as opposed to the incoherent ramblings of a butter bar.

(The following commentary is adapted from an article by Col. Mark Clemons, 442nd Fighter Wing commander.) Twenty years ago, the Air Force Reserve served the role of a strategic force held in reserve, ready to take over domestic Regular Air Force functions in the time of a national crisis. Since the first Gulf War in 1991, however, this paradigm has
