  • Security Forces commander attends FBI course

    On June 8, 2012, I will be one of 264 law enforcement officials graduating from the 249th Session of the Federal Bureau of Investigations National Academy. The FBI National Academy is a 10-week course of study, held at the FBI Academy in Quantico, Virginia, for U.S. and international law enforcement leaders. The National Academy serves to improve
  • It takes ALL of us!

    We've all heard the clichés, "Work smarter, not harder", and "Do more with less". They have become such a large part of our daily lives that, eventually, we tune people out when they use them. But, have we ever really considered why these phrases continue to be a part of our Air Force lives? Our leadership does not want us to focus entirely on the
  • MSG Corner: "One team, no seams"

    The 36th Mission Support Group is implementing a bi-weekly MSG Corner to highlight our skilled professionals as well as provide situational awareness of various community activities, events, projects and much more. 36 MSG consists of over 1,500 personnel across six squadrons: Civil Engineer, Communications, Contracting, Force Support, Logistics
  • We Are All Force Support

    I was asked near the start of my tour to describe my goals and vision for the 36th Force Support Squadron under my command. Full of optimism, yet early in my tenure, I had no idea the magnitude of the question! Constrained budgets and resources coupled with our unique island locale have created customer service challenges I could never have

  • The Es of Effective Leadership

    The Air Force affords us leadership experience and opportunities early in our careers. As a leader, my philosophy revolves around what I refer to as the "Es of effective leadership. " Leaders should Empower, Equip, Encourage, Energize and Expect Excellence from their team. Empowerment is critical for effective leaders to bestow to the subordinate
  • Ambassador Airmen

    Having been stationed overseas for nearly 14 years of my 24-year career, I have had the opportunity to live in several foreign countries:  Japan, South Korea and Greenland. I have been fortunate to visit countries in Southeast Asia, Europe and even a tour in Iraq. Through all this travel, I was careful to note that I was representing not only my
  • A little accountability goes a long way

    The core values, integrity first, service before self, and excellence in all we do, provide a great lead into the importance of personal accountability. Without personal accountability, the core values are never internalized and become meaningless to the person staring back at you from the mirror every morning. What does it mean to have personal
  • Healthy Airmen

    What does being healthy mean to you? I would like to share a few findings on this topic with a little input from others, some research, a little reality and personal experience and a few recommendations. Curiosity sparked this topic, so I asked some people, "What does being healthy mean to you?" Some of the responses I received were to eat fruits
