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

Default Air Force Logo A snowstorm, a shovel and a lesson
"This is a one big mess."Those were my thoughts as I peered out the window of my second floor apartment at a vast blanket of white covering the ground. The sidewalks, steps, and parking lot of the complex were buried under more than 14 inches of snow, dumped on the area courtesy of the second-largest snowstorm on record for Wichita.Having relocated

315th Airlift Wing Command Chief Commantary:  Self Mastery.  "The hardest victory is over self," Aristotle.  (U.S. Air Force illustration by Michael Dukes) The hardest victory is over self
"The hardest victory is over self" - AristotleHow many times have you procrastinated over an issue because you "just didn't feel like it," didn't complete career development timely, or maintain or attain fitness? I'm sure we've all done some of these things at some point in time. Now ask yourself, of those times in which you fell short, did you end

Try something new to help others -- and maybe yourself
Last year, Kent, a coworker from my civilian job, received a Greater Tampa Chamber of Commerce award for his community service. He had been visiting the homeless in downtown Tampa for more than a year, bringing them coffee and homemade pancakes every Wednesday morning. I congratulated him on his award and told him I admired him for his work, after

Default Air Force Logo In hurricane's wake, cynic learns lesson
Prior to Hurricane Sandy, I thought the Air Force's wingman concept was just a gimmick that encouraged Airmen to poke their noses into my business, or worse, required me to poke my nose into someone else's business. For goodness sake, I thought, can't an Airman just have a bad day without another Airman trying to help? Do these nose-pokers really

Someone once said if riding in an airplane is flying, then riding in a boat is swimming. If you want to experience the element, then get out of the vehicle.For me, skydiving was bucket list item no. 34 and a serious sport that takes fellow Guardian Angel Airmen from the Air Force Reserve's 920th Rescue Wing, Patrick Air Force Base, Fla., to the

Default Air Force Logo 5-year clock puts reemployment rights in jeopardy
Eleven years ago many of us took off our suits, welder's masks, gloves, and donned our uniforms and went off to defend our nation following the attacks on Sept. 11, 2001. We didn't know what the future would hold. Our employers told us to go, do our duty. We gladly accepted the challenge. Over the course of those years, many Airmen have been on and
