  • Resiliency and spousal support

    I write this piece on the 36th Wing's "Wingman Day," and one of today's major themes was resiliency, or the ability to bounce back from adversity, stress, setbacks--you name it. While families were invited to participate in Wingman Day activities, my own unit did not have any attendees other than our active duty members. I suspect that is a common
  • COMMENTARY: Holiday greetings from PACAF leaders

    The holiday season is here again - this past year really "Flew by!"

  • 70th Anniversary Attack on Oahu

    Today marks the 70th anniversary of the December 7, 1941, attacks on Oahu. It is important that we take a moment to reflect and remember this seminal event in our nation's history.

  • The Road Ahead for Communications Squadrons

    In the last 22 years of my career, I've witness first-hand how the communications career field in the Air Force has evolved rapidly and one thing is for sure...it is constantly changing! Military and commercial technology has given our military the upper hand with respect to other countries because it has enabled the creation of superior weapons
  • "Don't Settle"

    Twenty Seven. A non-descript number, a multiple of 3 and 9, somebody's jersey number, maybe your age; or for me, the number of years I've been in this incredible Air Force. I say that I've been in for 27 years to let you know my experience to the great changes we've undergone as we continue to represent our Nation to the world. As Bob Dylan said,
  • COMPACAF sends Veteran's Day message

    Each year we take a moment to remember the sacrifices of those who have worn the uniform in defense of our great nation. This year, Veterans Day falls just weeks before we commemorate the 70th anniversary of the attack on Oahu--that fateful day which led our country into World War II in the Pacific. The battle scars that still mark our PACAF
  • Communication is a Terrible Thing to Waste

    Throughout my almost 23 years of military service, the single most common trait I've seen all great commanders possess and the most valuable tool in their toolkit is the gift of effective communication. According to Webster's, communication is: "a process by which information is exchanged between individuals through a common system of symbols,
  • Andersen Medical Home - Enhancing Family Health at Andersen Clinic

The Family Health Initiative (FHI) will offer a few positive changes for active duty members, dependents and medical staff as we continue
  • Keeping it R.E.A.L. through challenging times.

    Chicken Little was in the woods one day when an acorn fell on her head. It scared her so much she trembled all over. She shook so hard, half her feathers fell out. "Help, Help! The sky is falling! I have to go tell the king!" We know how the story goes, Chicken Little frantically proclaimed to anyone who would listen, "Oh, help! The sky is
