Default Air Force Logo Esprit de corps <bk> Managing the ups and downs
The morale on Ellsworth has been the subject of many conversations, and phrases such as, "there is bad morale here," can be heard among Airmen around base. I don't understand. My morale has been high since I joined the Air Force in 1988. I have had bad days and bad months just like everyone else, but with proper coping mechanisms I have been able

Default Air Force Logo Servicemember political activity restrictions
As the 2008 elections draw near, remember that military members and federal civilian employees must adhere to special rules regarding their political activities. For both, the rule of thumb is to avoid any activity that may be viewed as associating the federal government, directly or indirectly, with a partisan political activity. This means that

Default Air Force Logo We’re almost there
It's almost time. As I write this, we have exactly 31 days before the ACC Inspector General Team visits Ellsworth. We're almost to the point where we can put that final lethal arrow into a quiver of readiness that we can showcase to the IG.

Default Air Force Logo Credit where credit is due - control office envy
President Reagan once said, "There's no limit to what a man can do or where he can go if he doesn't mind who gets the credit." It seems most of us sense that this is true. However, we may not see this practiced enough by ourselves or others. Is this idea a matter of personnel belief that some may practice, or should it be a policy that is actively

Default Air Force Logo Violating standards projects unprofessional image
I would like to take this opportunity to point out a few common standards violations that first sergeants notice the most. All of my references for the following items are from Air Force Instruction 36-2903, Dress and Personal Appearance of Air Force Personnel : Uniform Pockets While the Air Force issues uniforms with pockets, they are intended to

Air Force Instruction 36-2618, The Enlisted Force Structure, establishes enlisted leadership and development levels, specifies responsibilities of each enlisted rank within the structure, establishes official terms of address for Air Force enlisted personnel, describes special senior NCO positions, and standardizes duty titles. It serves as a career model and guide for the enlisted ranks. (U.S. Air Force photo illustration/ Senior Airman Anthony Sanchelli) "The Little Brown Handbook" guides Airmen's careers
Did you know the basic foundation and responsibilities for the enlisted force are written in Air Force Instruction 36-2618, The Enlisted Force Structure, commonly referred to as "The Little Brown Book?" Every Airman should read this instruction to comply with Air Force policy. It spells out the professional standards and roles and responsibilities

Default Air Force Logo PCSing is a blessing in disguise <br> make the best of the journey
Eleanor Roosevelt once said, "You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you stop to look fear in the face." Several years back, my father-in-law gave me a picture of a train with a statement that read, "Life is a journey, not a destination." That statement has rang true for me and my family and we credit the Air Force

Default Air Force Logo Ellsworth legal office ensures Airmen’s readiness
Being legally prepared prior to a deployment is important for you and your family. Planning ahead allows you peace of mind, knowing that you've prepared yourself and your family for whatever legal issues may arise while you're gone.
