Default Air Force Logo Leaving "The Rock" better than we found it
In my 25 years of active-duty service to our nation, I've had the privilege to serve alongside some of our most influential Airmen and leaders. I've had the opportunity to experience Air Force missions throughout the continental United States as well as several continents and countries. What I have come to realize is one very important

Col. Greg Otey, 19th Airlift Wing commander We're in it to win It!
By now, we're all aware that "the Rock" is one of Air Mobility Command's top contenders for the Commander-in-Chief's Installation Excellence Award. Sunday, we will welcome the IEA review board. This five-member team will spend one day with us, seeing first-hand all the ways Team Little Rock truly excels. As a team the 314th Airlift Wing, 189th

Col. C.K. Hyde, 314th Airlift Wing commander Training: the Field of Friendly Strife
On the fields of friendly strife are sown the seeds that on other days and other fields bear the fruits of victory -- Army Gen. Douglas McArthur I had the privilege of leading a contingent from the 314th Airlift Wing to the United States Air Force Academy last week to interact with the cadet squadron we sponsor. Several of our team received

Chief Master Sgt. Anthony Brinkley, 19th Airlift Wing command chief It's Your Career, Make It Count
By the time most of you read this article, Col. Greg Otey and I will be in Colorado Springs, Colo., standing up the 52nd Airlift Squadron, or newest active-duty associate unit. This unit will add to the mission assets assigned to the 19th Airlift Wing. In the not-too-distant future we will stand up two other geographically separated units and

Col. Adam Dickerson, 314th Maintenance Group commander Airman first
A few days ago, we celebrated the 62nd birthday of our Air Force. A conversation I heard on the morning of Sept. 18 brought to mind a story a first sergeant told me she had heard from a chief years before. The chief related the events of a trip he took around the Central Command area of responsibility with the general for whom he worked during

Maj. Debbie Horne, 19th Force Support Squadron commander Fitness — just do it!
We all know the Air Force's Fitness Program is changing soon. It's finally time, once and for all, for all Air Force members to make a lifetime commitment to take their own personal physical fitness seriously. Like mental, spiritual and emotional fitness, it takes time and effort to become physically fit -- indeed, habits, both good and bad, can

Chief Master Sgt. Anthony Brinkley, 19th Airlift Wing command chief A simple request
I recently received a note from a good friend of mine who is deployed and it caused me to put things in better focus. His note referenced having to run many convoys through dangerous territory for the purpose of taking care of his fellow Airmen, Soldiers, Sailors, and Marines. The request was simple, yet profound. He asked for those inclined to

314th Airlift Wing Leading by example
Organizational success is directly proportional to leadership effectiveness. Many believe it's measured by a leader's ability to actively shape behaviors to achieve specified goals and performance. However, becoming too focused on purposefully changing others can overshadow another indirectly powerful leadership style: leading by example. Those who

Col. Greg Otey, 19th Airlift Wing commander 700 celebrate the Air Force's 62nd birthday in style
Happy birthday, Air Force! Today, Sept. 18, marks the 62nd anniversary of the Air Force as a separate service. While we might be the nation's youngest service, ours is a history that's rich and colorful. Our Air Force history includes small phrases with big impact. Names and events like: Billy Mitchell, the Tuskegee Airmen, the Berlin Airlift,

Chief Master Sgt. Anthony Brinkley, 19th Airlift Wing command chief Giving respect where respect is due
As I was traveling this week on a TDY, there was a fellow Airman who was departing for his deployment to the Middle East on the same plane as I was on. The flight attendant made an announcement thanking this young man, as well as others who served in uniform, and the entire plane gave this Airman a round of applause. Today, we will honor our
