Parents worry. It’s just what we do. We worry our child will get hurt. We worry we aren’t making the right decisions for them. We worry they’ve become irrevocably addicted to their iPad and that they really shouldn’t spend so much time watching videos of a 5-year-old millionaire open new toys.

Maj. Marnee A.C. Losurdo, 403rd Wing Public Affairs chief, holds photographs of her grandmother March 22 at Keesler Air Force Base, Mississippi. (U.S. Air Force photo/Staff Sgt. Heather Heiney) Women's History: We all contribute
It was a frigid day in January on a quiet hill-side cemetery just north of New Market, Iowa. Surrounded by friends and family, we bid farewell to my grandmother. As we departed on those dusty gravel roads, I remembered my childhood and how she’d had such a profound impact on my life.

Do we need to have a cup of coffee? Editorial on leadership and management. Let's have a cup of coffee
Regardless of your profession, many of us have all been in positions defining the required "Leadership" and "Management" qualifications as an expectation of our ability to execute our office. But like many things, no two are alike and not one will prevail without the help of another.

Lt. Col. Stuart Rubio, 815th Airlift Squadron commander, prepares for a training flight at Keesler Air Force Base Jan. 26. The 815th AS, "Flying Jennies," have been steadily rebuilding since the decision to keep the squadron at Keesler was made in 2015. (U.S. Air Force photo/Staff Sgt. Heather Heiney) Flying Jennies grow day by day
You never know what curveballs life and, in particular, the Air Force are going to throw at you. In October 2015, I was stationed at Little Rock Air Force Base flying a standard Friday afternoon student sortie as a C-130J schoolhouse instructor. As soon as we landed I received a message to call my operations group commander…which isn’t usually good news.

Dave Nickell, unit deployment manager with the 477th Fighter Group at Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson, Alaska, gathers with his family after completing his first Boston Marathon April, 2013, shortly before a bomb went of at the finish line. Nickell remembers the Boston Marathon tragedy of 2013 while training for the 2017 race. Remembering Boston Marathon tragedy inspires patriotism in one 477th FG runner
As I prepare for the 2017 Boston Marathon, pounding the payment in 0 degree temperatures, on snow and ice covered trails, my mind is often drawn back to my first Boston Marathon, the 2013 marathon and my journey getting there, and the catastrophic ending to the event. Although I was not a victim physically, the events that day certainly had an impact on me and my family and altered my perspective on many things.

Benjamin Wilson)(Released) Citizen Airmen, Marines lead the way at 407th AEG
The U.S. Airmen and Marines of the 407th Expeditionary Security Forces Squadron are leading the way on their deployment with a truly collective approach to joint defense operations. Over the past decade, joint operations between U.S. sister services has become increasingly prevalent. So much so, that the joint environment has become the paradigm of comprehensive and effective battlespace ownership. What is unique about the base defense mission here is the integration of not only two U.S. sister services, but also a coalition partner, all under one, unified tactical control.

Command Chief Master Sergeant, 315th Airlift Wing The importance of good character
Someone once said that people of genius are admired, people of wealth are envied, people of power are feared, but only people of “character” are trusted. Without character…you cannot be trusted, and if you be cannot be trusted…you cannot lead. The word character comes from the Greek, meaning "to make a mark." Your character is your mark on the world. Character can be defined as the sum of one’s characteristics. Whereas, strength of character, is to have strong characteristics that are of value to others and to one’s self. Said another way, the ethical values we all strive to represent are characteristics, while strength of character is the extent to which you execute your values.

The Airman's Creed.(U.S. Air Force photo/Staff Sgt. Heather Heiney) I’m terrified and I will not fail
I was sitting on the floor at Denver International Airport waiting for a flight to San Antonio. I leaned against a cool glass window in jeans and a black tee shirt, holding the Airman’s Creed on a business card with tiny letters in my hands. Several other trainees-to-be and I were taking turns reading it out loud in an attempt to both quell our nerves and get a step ahead. I was almost 23-years-old and terrified that joining the Air Force was the wrong decision. “And I will not fail,” we repeated.

Commentary:  The holidays are approaching once again, and so the season of gift giving is upon us. Its arrival is marked by barrages of nonsensical advertising and holiday specials on everything from sweatshirts to new cars to payday loans. Spending more on gifts won’t bring more holiday happiness
