Default Air Force Logo Put The Gum Back
So much of what we need to learn about how to live a successful life we learn at a very early age. Over the years I've read many self-improvement books on leadership and life by people like Machiavelli, Ken Blanchard, Anthony Robbins, Gen (Ret) H.

Default Air Force Logo Rise to the Challenge
Challenge yourself! I don't remember it, but I am sure that I had butterflies in my stomach the first time I let loose of my mother's hand and tried to take those first few steps by myself.

Being from New Hampshire and a life-long New England Patriot fan, I was extremely excited this year watching them work their way to a perfect season.

Default Air Force Logo Words to live by
I can save my own life. For everyone stationed at Andersen Air Force Base in Guam, these words are part of their daily lexicon.

Default Air Force Logo Warrior Airman
Our new Airman's Creed published shortly before I deployed to Bagram Air Base, Afghanistan. In September, our 455 Expeditionary Wing Commander had posters of the creed framed and posted in every office. I'm not sure if its the sight of the Creed at every turn, or the deployment experience, or the fact I have much more of my career behind me than
