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

Default Air Force Logo The choices we make
Have you seen the recent British public service announcement video on YouTube about the teenager texting on a busy highway? It's a graphic, poignant crash reenactment. The driver's critically injured and her two passengers are killed, as are others caught up in the accident. The point? Texting while driving is a poor choice, and her recklessness

Col. Chris Hair, 19th Maintenance Group commander There are no metrics for “Saves”
"Virtue is its own reward. There's a pleasure in doing good which sufficiently pays itself." Sir John Vanbrugh. This quote sounds simple enough and won't get much argument from people. However, that isn't much comfort when we have tried to do good and it seems to have had no effect--there are no measurements kept for those whom we help to avoid

Gen. Arthur J. Lichte, Air Mobility Command commander Air Force birthday is an opportunity to recognize 62 years of success
On Sept. 18, 1947, our Air Force became a separate branch of the military. Since then our unequalled accomplishments have helped provide a beacon of hope for men, women, and children all over the world. Throughout our command's rich history, we have evolved from Air Transportation Command to Air Mobility Command, which now encompasses airlift, air

Chief Master Sgt. Anthony Brinkley, 19th Airlift Wing command chief Be part of the solution
As I ran at about 5:30 a.m., problem solving became the focus of my thoughts. You see, I didn't realize skunks like to get up early and forage around my normal running route. So, as I faced off with one of those furry creatures, I began to ponder how we deal with problems when we are faced with them. Do we engage the situation or do we change our

Col. Greg Otey, 19th Airlift Wing commander Make safety priority one this Labor Day weekend
We as an Air Force have experienced a very tragic week. Five Airmen were lost in a variety of mishaps: two automobile, one motorcycle, one drowning and one light plane crash. We don't know the causes of these mishaps because they are still under investigation. However, we know that one vehicle blew a tire, causing the operator to lose control. Was

Col. C.K. Hyde, 314th Airlift Wing commander Silent in many languages: Valuing people through listening
General Ulysses S. Grant was the hero of the Civil War battles of Fort Donelson, Tenn., Vicksburg, Miss., Chattanooga, Tenn. and the campaigns in Northern Virginia which culminated with the Confederate Army's surrender at Appomattox Court House, Va. He was not flashy, physically imposing or charismatic like many of his predecessors at the head of

Maj. Constantine Tsoukatos, 19th Component Maintenance Squadron commander One team, one fight
You've all heard the battle cry at a commander's call or after a wing staff meeting: "Team Little Rock -- Combat Airlift!" But have you ever really thought about what it means? Well I have, as I had the opportunity to transition from Air Education and Training Command to Air Mobility Command and be part of two great teams, supporting the same
