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

Default Air Force Logo What motivates you?
Motivation doesn't always come easy. You see it from time to time, you expect it from others and sometimes you look deep within yourself to find it. For me, it manifests itself within my children, when I put on the uniform or when I witness a selfless act. It's been said that if you want to make things happen the ability to motivate yourself and

Default Air Force Logo Celebrate Independence Day safely
As we celebrate our independence, I want to thank each one of you for bravely serving our country and providing this nation's blanket of freedom. We all agreed to serve our country during a time of war, accepting the risks and dangers involved--and our country needs us now more than ever. As we celebrate our country's 233rd birthday, we'll take to

Default Air Force Logo Preventing the next suicide
In January 2009, the number of Army deaths from suicide outpaced the number of soldiers killed by al-Qaeda in Afghanistan and Iraq combined. The Air Force has also seen an increase in suicides from the previous year. Little Rock Air Force Base has had an increase in suicide-related behaviors since the beginning of the year. Life difficulties or

Default Air Force Logo Gifts are for sharing
Today, after another busy day on "the Rock," a few of us sat around the office and began to discuss what we respect in good leadership. Mrs. Cheryl Fraser, the 19th Airlift Wing commander's secretary, made the point that the best leaders understand that their gifts and talents are to be used to take care of those around them. I believe each of us
