Default Air Force Logo Travel, an Air Force Immeasurable Benefit
Abraham Lincoln once said, “In the end, it's not the years in your life that count. It's the life in your years.” A very true statement by one of our countries greatest presidents, and the Air Force can put “life in your years” if you grab the opportunities when they come your way.I went home to California recently, and had a good conversation with

(U.S. Air Force photo by Craig Denton) First Year in Command
In June 2015, I had the privilege of taking command of the Air Force's most geographically separated wing, the 21st Space Wing. From day one, Airmen, civilians, and contractors of the 21st SW continued to drive excellence and innovation in the Air Force’s premier space superiority mission.

Default Air Force Logo Embrace the opportunity to serve our country
My grandfather served in World War II. He received his draft notice on the exact day my mother was born. He was shipped to Fort Carson, then overseas to fight in the war in France. I grew up with his stories of traveling from town to town, hiding out from the enemy in a farmer’s barn, and his missions as the communications NCO. My grandfather

Default Air Force Logo Memorial Day 2016
In my first Commander’s Call I talked about how we are all a part of an organization, a family really, where we all would lay down our life to protect each other. The spirit of that statement embodies the spirit of Memorial Day: the sacrifice of individual life for the benefit of fellow citizens and brothers and sisters in arms. Every day I am
