Triple ace fighter pilot, Brigadier General Robin Olds, center and former members of the 507th sport their mustaches throughout the years.  “Mustache March” is a way to honor our heritage and our pride while having some fun and getting made fun of in many cases.  (U.S. Air Force Photo illustration/Senior Airman Mark Hybers)  Mustache March, Air Force Heritage and you
So it's March and what's the first thing you think about in this glorious month...Mustache March of course. Maybe not, but this year Air Force Chief of Staff Gen. Mark Welsh issued a challenge to the force for this March."I don't think we've ever had an all-in Mustache March, have we?" Welsh said during his speech at the Air Force Association's Air

Looking ahead to 2014 - commentary by Col. James Fontanella, 315th Airlift Wing commander.  
Looking ahead to 2014
This is the time of year prognosticators look ahead to predict what is on the horizon for the next twelve months. I don't claim to have any powers of prediction, but if one were to forecast some of the impacts that national and world events will have on our military in 2014, I'll offer these general areas to focus your scan. Starting at the global

As we finish this year and look forward to the next, I want to thank you for your outstanding commitment and professionalism. You and your fellow Citizen Airmen clearly displayed a "service before self" attitude.From sequestration to the government shutdown, the budget challenges were numerous. I appreciate your dedication to the mission, the Air

Dropping the bag... and the attitude. (U.S. Air Force Reserve graphic by Senior Airman Madelyn McCullough) Dropping the bag... and the attitude
Nearly 30 anxious girls stumbled out of a bus with a varied collection of clothing and baggage and lined up in their first formation as a flight. They were "greeted" by an almost seven-foot man with a big bushy mustache and a campaign hat who yelled at them before targeting one (because of her huge suitcase) as his first victim. "Are you scared of

Col. Jeffrey Mineo, 310th Space Wing commander Valuing 'Citizen Airmen' in space today
When asked to provide commentary on a subject of my choice, it took me about 10 seconds to pick a topic - the value of the Air Force Reserve in space today. The joining of 310th Space Wing "Citizen Airmen" alongside our regular Air Force mission partners across Air Force Space Command bases strengthens an important relationship needed for combatant

ROLE MODELS:  Commentary by Col. James Fontanella, 315th Airlift Wing Commander. (U.S. Air Force Reserve Illustration by Michael Dukes) Role models
I had an interesting discussion with my chief's group a couple weekends ago. The topic was leadership, and it was not astonishing to hear one of the more seasoned chiefs tell me that one of the most important aspects of his leadership is his function as a role model to his young Airmen. So, that got me thinking about role models. Who are they,

Military aviation salute signals bond between aviator, maintainer
There is a long and proud history between aircraft air crew and ground crew. This strong relationship predates fixed wing flight and military aviation as we know it today. Even on the very first powered flight, Orville and Wilbur Wright had to decide who would be first to fly their craft and who would help make the launch historically successful.

Default Air Force Logo A little ESGR education can go a long way
Upon completion of my five-level seasonal training, I submitted my application for reemployment to my employer, asking to return to my pre-service position. I received a warm welcome and everyone in the shop expressed appreciation for my service to our country. During my reintegration back into the company, Human Resources stated that I would have

Default Air Force Logo Rape: a personal perspective
I was raped in December 1990.I've never kept this part of my life a secret. I guess it's because nothing could ever change a moment in my life over which I had no control. However, it took me this long to consider telling my story in such a public forum, even after becoming a Victim's Advocate in 2006 when the 301st Fighter Wing's Sexual Assault

"Hey, Mom, guess what!"It was an innocent start to a recent conversation with my son that served as a real wake-up call for me. When my 10-year-old told me someone had asked him if he wanted to get high, my first reaction was to begin interrogating him with a barrage of who, what, where, and how's. But he was looking at me to see my reaction, so I
