The holidays are the ideal time of year to slow down a little bit, and reflect on all that has been accomplished personally and professionally in the year.

Default Air Force Logo Taking care of your peeps
It is important to recognize a job well done, whether it is with quarterly or annual awards, letters of appreciation or just a pat on the back.

Default Air Force Logo Holidays call for “whole family” approach to safety
When families gather for the holidays, it's natural to 'keep an eye out' for groups of nieces and nephews, sons and daughters excited to play together during seasonal celebrations. Airmen thoughtfully "childproof" their homes and check Christmas lights for faults that might lead to a shock. Families check websites for product safety recalls and

Air Force Chief of Staff General Norton Schwartz's most recent Vector message encouraged all Air Force personnel to exercise their right to participate in the political process. How can they do this?

Default Air Force Logo Dog behavior relies on responsible ownership
Various dog breeds throughout the years have been labeled as "vicious" or "dangerous" and in many areas, legislative bodies have enacted breed-specific bans or legislation to limit ownership of particular dog breeds.

Default Air Force Logo DUI/DUA prevention key to safety, success

Honor guard -- a higher purpose
Last month, as I assumed the duties of the 28th Bomb Wing director of staff, I did not realize with the job came such a unique responsibility - commander of the Ellsworth Honor Guard.
