Default Air Force Logo Education - take the time and go for it!
If you're like me, I was happy to have a bachelor's degree, and was completely satisfied and done with school. How wrong I was. It seemed the Air Force had other plans for me: Air Force Professional Military Education and technical training, which involved Squadron Officer School, Air Command and Staff College and undergraduate navigator training.

Col. Mark Vlahos, 314th Airlift Wing vice commander It's been a great ride
It's been a total pleasure to serve as a member of Team Little Rock the past two years. Julie, the children and I will certainly miss Central Arkansas and all the great folks here. My going-away lunch and C-130 final flight were both very special, and are memories that will last a lifetime. Thanks to all the behind-the-scenes heroes who made these

Chief Master Sgt. Anthony Brinkley, 19th Airlift Wing command chief Our mission is about trust
As I flew to Colorado Springs, Colo., the other day on my way to witness our base participate in the Air Mobility Command Airlift RODEO 2009 challenge, the concept of trust began to play out in my mind. Col. Greg Otey, 19th Airlift Wing commander, was piloting the aircraft that 35 of us were on and each one of us trusted him with our lives. Our

Col. Donald Wilhite, 314th Maintenance Group commander Good mistakes
Is there such a thing as a good mistake? You bet. For example, in our profession, if you're uncertain about calling the room to attention, call it to attention. If you're uncertain about saluting, salute. If you're uncertain about saying "sir" or "ma'am," say "sir", "ma'am." If the action wasn't required, at least you erred on the side of a good

Chief Master Sgt. Anthony Brinkley, 19th Airlift Wing command chief Doing the right thing is a choice
Every day we wake up, we are faced with many decisions that personally affect us as well as those around us. They range from what we decide to eat or being on time for our obligations, to what type of effort will we put forward during our workday. Yet each of us has the ability to choose to be a positive impact in our environment based on the

Default Air Force Logo Don't fear failure
Some of the people I admire the most are the ones who have the ability to keep moving ahead despite setbacks in their lives. I believe if you live long enough you will see challenges along the way; and if you don't believe me, just keep on living. But my question is: "Do you let your setbacks stop you, or do you keep pressing toward

Default Air Force Logo The American Team
The fifth 314th Airlift Wing goal is to "Represent our Air Force to our community, joint partners and allies," and as we reflect on our nation's 233nd birthday, I'd like to expound on the partnership between the military and our community, the American people. I've stated many times that we all need others to be successful and the strength of our

Default Air Force Logo There's no "I" in team
There is no "I" in team. You may have heard this term used before, but I beg to differ. I say there are "I's" in team. Without two or more "I"ndividuals, you cannot have a team. According to Webster's desk dictionary, team is defined as: "A group of persons joined together in some action or contest." Every team is not always successful as you

Default Air Force Logo Get outside and enjoy
As we approach the Fourth of July weekend we should all feel fortunate to have so many opportunties for fun and exploration in our backyard. Arkansas has 52 state parks; many national parks including Hot Springs, the Buffalo National River, a portion of the Trail of Tears National Historical Trail; numerous nature centers, waterfalls and waterways

Default Air Force Logo Slow down to get there faster
This week put into perspective that being the first out of the gate doesn't guarantee finishing on top in a race or in our professions. In our give-it-to-me-my-way-and-give-it-to-me-now society, we end up repeating things we should only have to do once. This typically happens because we are in such a rush to finish versus providing the best product
