(U.S. Air Force photo by Master Sgt. Donna T. Jeffries) Your momma wears combat boots
On the small-town playground of my childhood, the comeback quip of last resort after being physically or verbally pummeled was "well, your momma wears combat boots."It was the juvenile equivalent of today's profane four-letter bombs but with bigger consequences.

A few years ago I had the experience of a lifetime.I spent an entire weekend with one of my heroes.And for once the hero actually lived up to the title.Growing up, I had plenty of heroes. Most emerged from the world of sports. The walls of my bedroom were plastered with posters of guys like Michael Jordan, Joe Montana, and Larry Bird. My heroes,

It's been one year since I was stranded on the side of the highway with a dead-end job and no money for school or gas. As I sat in my car, waiting for my ride to show up, I realized I wasn't going anywhere, and it wasn't only because my gas tank was empty. I pictured myself as a stronger person when I graduated high school, but I was dependent on

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

Default Air Force Logo No pencil eraser for social media mistakes
In February 2010, Pentagon officials authorized using social networks on unclassified military computers. They believe the benefits of social media outweigh security concerns. However, operational security has always been a military constant and that has not diminished with the advent of social media. If anything, OPSEC has become more important

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 wear the same uniform, we use the same equipment, we maintain the same training requirements and we proudly serve side-by-side on deployments, in times of war and during humanitarian emergencies. 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.
