Col. James, Hurley, 315th Mission Support Group commander, talks about the importance of being a mentor in the latest commander commentary from the 315th Airlift Wing . (U.S. Air Force graphic) Commentary: Be a Mentor
Winston Churchill said, "We make a living by what we get, we make a life by what we give."  For those of you who are or have been a mentor you understand the meaning of these words.    I can still remember my first day, late in December 1982, at my first duty assignment in the 342nd Missile Security Squadron, Malmstrom Air Force Base, Montana.  I

(COMMENTARY) SAPR: More than an Air Force Acronym. Until we take deliberate steps as a team to change this culture into one where dignity and trust are our foundation, we will never reach our full potential. So I ask today, that each one of you make a commitment, to "Sexual Assault Prevention and Response," to take real action and confront this issue head on. 

SAPR: More than an Air Force Acronym
As an Airman and a senior leader in the Air Force Reserve, I've seen firsthand the devastating impacts of sexual assault on an Air Force organization. Regardless of your unit or military status, Active or Reserve, no one is immune to these impacts nor absolved of their responsibility to combat the instances of sexual assault that continue to

Col. Jamie Fontanella, 315th Airlift Wing Commander Commentary: Let your conscience be your guide.
Let your conscience be your guide.That's pretty simple advice. We all remember the story of Pinocchio and Jiminy Cricket and from our childhoods, and the horrible outcomes when Jiminy's advice was disregarded. The interesting thing is, following your conscience is great advice whether you're young or old, child or adult, wooden or real.I find that

Direction leads to motivation
I once heard a man say a person who lacks direction in life is a person who gets unmotivated about it. As I thought about that statement I couldn't help but reflect on my direction in life as a young airman, fulfilling my duties to my country as well as fulfilling my duties to myself.All service members remember the day we waited on since the first

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.

Commentary: Thoughts from the heart with family at Christmas. (U.S. Air Force photo/Staff Sgt. Shane Ellis) Thoughts from the heart with family at Christmas
The kids are in bed and with good reason. It's Christmas, and both of my children were up early to see what Santa delivered during the night. As their father, I love to observe their actions, listen to their words, and smile with every non-verbal cue they give me as they open their Christmas presents. As I observed my children today, I am

There are less than sixty days until the official standup of Joint Base Charleston. With so little time, it is essential for all Joint Base personnel to know and understand our naval military ranks.

Gary Johnson)                               Once in a lifetime
As I stood in the pre-flight briefing listening to my pilot, Frosty, receive our sortie information, the initial tingle of realization awakened the butterflies in my stomach. Anticipation was the nectar feeding them into a flurry of activity. Was I actually going to board an F16? Was I actually going to fly that fast? Was I actually going to

Col. Mike Kim Vice Commander says farewell
I find writing a farewell article extremely difficult, because how do I say thank you to the best wing in the U.S. Air Force? How do I acknowledge all of your outstanding accomplishments? There is not enough room in this paper nor am I eloquent enough to do you justice. The men and women of the 315th Airlift Wing are truly the most professional
