Default Air Force Logo Got the blues?
The bus comes to a halt but nobody moves or says a word. Hearts begin to speed up as a crowd appears outside the bus. "Everyone off the bus," you hear. From that point on your life changed. No longer could you sleep in or have a bad day. Most importantly, no longer was it about you. It became about the team - it was Basic Military Training and you

Default Air Force Logo Operation Christmas Child
A shoe box can make a world of difference in the life of a needy child when it is filled with gifts. Millions of children in our world live and exist in conditions difficult for most people to imagine.

Why should people recycle? What's the importance? As a kid, I remember the commercials about not running the water while brushing your teeth; and the one about turning off the light when you leave a room. Those commercials played on the minds of the American populace. These were easy things to do and the message was clear -- if we all pull together

Default Air Force Logo Jet noise too loud?...Listen to this
It's the stuff that'll make you shake, rattle and roll--your windows, your insides, and anything else you may have in and around your house.

Default Air Force Logo Who do you think you are?
Recently I have become more aware of problems Airmen are having. I have written stories on the Culture of Responsible Choices and the Airmen Against Drunk Driving program, and attended an Air Force fatality briefing and victim advocacy training.

With the Air Force vision focusing on the future and making provisions to better equip the warfighter, it is important to remain vigilant, support change and look for ways to do things better, trim excess and continue to build a leaner, more fit expeditionary force. This effort requires significant change, ranging from how we prepare for and
