Default Air Force Logo Dedication to Compliance
In an Air Force full of “shalls,” “musts,” and “wills,” total compliance is something that I don’t think is ever achievable.

Lt Col, USAF, SAF, HAF, PA, LL Bring on the Revitalization
A few weeks ago, I took command of the 21st Security Forces Squadron. It is an incredible honor to lead such an extraordinary group of people. Prior to my arrival at Peterson Air Force Base, Colorado, I served as the Air Force Chief of Staff Gen. David L. Goldfein’s legislative advisor in Washington, D.C. In that position, I was able to personally witness the development of his three focus areas, one of which is revitalizing squadrons.

Default Air Force Logo Good wingmen make a difference
I cracked a couple of puns with a masked man I assumed to be a doctor. He said he was sorry, but I knew it wasn't about the puns. He showed genuine regret.

Serving as your commander for the past two years has been an absolute honor and a privilege. Over and over again, I’ve been amazed by your innovation, work ethic and your dedication to the mission.

Default Air Force Logo Teamwork in Remote Locations
SOCORRO, N.M.- The 20th Space Control Squadron Detachment 1, Ground Based Electro Optical Deep Space Surveillance (GEODSS) telescope is located at Stallion Range Center on White Sands Missile Range, New Mexico, about 30 minutes from the City of Socorro. Our remote location increases the likelihood of clear skies and there is almost no light pollution to interfere with our space surveillance mission. However, this isolation also presents challenges that require effective planning, teamwork, and execution to overcome.

Default Air Force Logo Growing up Army: Wouldn’t trade it for anything
Growing up with my brother and sister in a military family was a challenge. My father was an Army Military Police Officer and we were stationed in places around the world. Throughout the years, we never stayed at one base for more than three years. I hated it. Being an Army brat was about continual change.

Default Air Force Logo Summer safety
I know. You’re probably thinking something like, “Oh, great. Another summer safety brief. Bo-ring. I’ll just skip on by and see if there’s anything else worth reading in the paper.” Right? Come on, admit it…you know you don’t want to hear, again, about all the things you need to do to be safe this summer. “I get it”, you say to yourself as you audibly roll your eyes. “I’ll wear my seatbelt, hydrate, use sunscreen and won’t drink and drive. Boom. Just gave myself a safety brief.”
