Try something with me.  Close your eyes and picture a typical doctor.  What is the doctor wearing?  How tall is this doctor?  What color is the hair?  How long is it?  Are there tattoos?  Is the doctor young or old?  Graying?  Do they have a kind face?  Is there a stethoscope around the doctor’s neck?  Now I want you to picture the ideal military

Default Air Force Logo So here I am
As I sit and ponder on what Black History Month means to me, I can’t help but to wonder, am I wrong for wanting to celebrate and remember those who have come before us and those who are still making a difference today? For me, this month is a time of education, appreciation, and understanding of who we are, where we’ve been, and what we plan to do for our future.

I first visited the Air Force Enlisted Village as a young first sergeant in 2009, when I was stationed at Tyndall Air Force Base, Florida. I went to visit with the Tyndall Active Airmen's Association, Tyndall's E-1 to E-4 Professional Association, and was amazed at what I saw.This was also the first time I met the ninth Chief Master Sergeant of the

Default Air Force Logo It started just like any other day
It was June 2001 and there I was walking down the stage ready to receive my diploma. I was excited to graduate just like anyone else, but deep down inside I was scared. I didn't have any plans as to what I was going to do now; here comes the real world. Many of my friends joined the armed forces or went to college, but I decided to hit the

Default Air Force Logo From Airman Leadership School to Afghanistan
On Sept. 11, 2001, I was stationed at Incirlik Air Base, Turkey as a senior airman. At the time I had a line number for staff sergeant and was attending Airman Leadership School. After one of our exams, the ALS superintendent walked into our classroom in a very casual manner and stated, "Someone flew an airplane into one of the World Trade Center

There I was lying in bed. My eyes slowly opened and I was instantly irritated, because my alarm hadn't gone off yet. I hate waking up before I have to. For a moment I forgot where I was. The bed was too comfortable, the room too clean and there was food in the fridge, so obviously I was not at home. I stumbled out of the mass of blankets on the bed

Default Air Force Logo When keeping it real goes wrong
It's Tuesday, and after a long day at work I'm reminded that I have an intramural league basketball game tonight. After arriving home and quickly changing I make my way back to the base gym to avoid the scrutiny of my coach and team mates. As I begin to search through the maze of a jersey bag to find one that isn't so small it cuts the circulation

Default Air Force Logo The impact of a simple email
It's been a long day. I'm tired, worn out. It seems like the emails just won't stop. Review this, update that, and the ever dreaded tasking that was due yesterday. One after another they attack my sanity, chipping away a little at a time. Just when I think the day couldn't get any more hectic from the demands of the 21st century, a ray of light

More than a decade has elapsed since the U.S. deployed in support of Operation ENDURING FREEDOM. Since then I have gone on several deployments, I am still awestruck at the generosity of our countrymen and women. Each and every year our countrymen and women have never failed to send a taste of home in the form of care packages. The simple cardboard
