  • Red or yellow? An overly brief history on the dynamic and difficult pathway to women’s suffrage and women’s equality day

    Red rose or yellow rose? Yes or No? Should women be allowed the right to vote?
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Col. Schiess offers final commentary

    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. As Debbie and I prepare to transition to Washington, D.C., allow me one final opportunity to reflect and thank you for a job well done.
  • 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.
  • The Air Force Dining-out

    As a young technical sergeant stationed at Vandenberg Air Force Base, California, in 2008, I experienced my first Air Force Dining-out.
  • 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.”
  • Parents: Do you know where your children are?

    One of my favorite aspects of this time of year is being able to enjoy being outside. The weather is getting warm, we all start seeing the neighborhood kids in their yards, or out riding their bikes, and throwing the football in the yard, etc. Unfortunately, we also sometimes see young children wandering around the streets alone, or left unattended in vehicles.
  • Taking ownership and accountability for your actions

    If someone asked any other First Sergeant how many times they have heard this, they probably would start to smile. They smile because it is what we as First Sergeants hear on a routine basis. However, I learned two important things way before I joined the military over twenty years ago, and if we, as Airmen, abide by these, most of these comments I mentioned above would not exist. The two things I would like to talk about are ownership and accountability.
