  • What service before self truly means

    Think of what you might have to offer -- time, effort or skill. If there is something you are passionate about, harness it, support someone in need and make a difference; keep the spirit of service before self, alive.
  • Commentary: Well done, this is your trophy

    If you haven’t heard the news, our wing was honored in October with the Raincross Trophy for being selected as the Best Wing in Fourth Air Force. This is a big deal. It means that of the 16 Wings and one group within 4th AF, we’re the best.
  • 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.
  • Jimmy Stewart: True American Patriot

    Jimmy Stewart once said, “What’s wrong with wanting to fight for your country? Why are people reluctant to use the word patriotism?”

  • Shattering the silence

    Experiencing domestic abuse took my voice away, and during the thick of it, I didn’t even recognize myself anymore. Well, I have my voice back and I’m breaking my silence.
  • From the Top: Passing the Torch

    The ending of any assignment is bittersweet, and the end of this one is no different. As I prepare to transition into the next phase with my family, I am excited but also a bit sad. We have accomplished so much together over the last four years, and it will be hard to leave the incredible people and families in our Air Force Reserve. However, I am
  • An adventure of a lifetime

    Everybody has their idea of what an “adventure of a lifetime” is for them. I got to realize one of those adventures recently as I was invited to attend the Army’s Basic Airborne Course at Fort Benning, Georgia. Many events led to an invitation by the battalion commander of the 507th Parachute Infantry Regiment to attend. He even invited me to
  • Being a part of history

    As I touched down in Cuba on a mission to support the president on his inaugural visit to Havana, I couldn’t help to think, this is one that I will tell my grandkids about. Cuba and I seem to have a love hate relationship lately. I was deployed to Guantanamo Bay last year and was running media operations when President Obama announced the
  • The ‘Dirty Dozen’: what it means to serve as a Reservist

    When I was the spouse of a Reservist (which was the better part of my five years of marriage), I didn't get it. My husband would work his normal work week, then square away his uniform on Friday night for drill on Saturday and Sunday.
