Default Air Force Logo Commander’s Corner: How green is your Air Force?
The Air Force has been practicing environmentally responsible decision-making for a long time. Beyond using renewable energy sources Air Force wide, you don't have to look far to see the important role Kirtland AFB is playing in protecting our environment here and in the communities around us. On Nov. 1, Kirtland received the 2007 Federal Energy

There seems to be a lack of safety at Paintbrush and the road leading to Sandia Base Elementary, what's being done about it? Traffic control can be a challenge with approximately 52,000 acres and over 100 associate units on the installation, especially near schools where large numbers of vehicle and pedestrian traffic occur in a relatively short

Default Air Force Logo Career Focus: 99% heart, 1% everything else
Another promotion cycle is quickly approaching for master sergeants across the Air Force. With test dates in December, many will begin to study the professional development guide. Some will study so much that they will split the bookbinding. Many will wonder how competitive their records will be when scrutinized by the promotion board. Promotion to

Default Air Force Logo Commander’s Corner: Anniversary celebration lived up to its promise
Sixty years ago this week, the National Security Act of 1947 established the Air Force as an independent service. That independence marked a milestone in air and space history. Born out of the lessons of World War II, the fledgling service stood on the shoulders of giants like Billy Mitchell and Hap Arnold, and demonstrated that Airmen bring a

Default Air Force Logo Airmail: Why not offer alternative fuel at pump?
Q. I would like to suggest that Kirtland AFB and AAFES take the lead in our community and offer E85 fuel, commonly known as ethanol, at the base service station, and possibly biodiesel as well. I think the base could use its infrastructure and its patriotic early-adopter populous to encourage availability, education and usage throughout the

Default Air Force Logo Career Focus: Want to succeed? Desire it
One of my favorite hobbies is visiting philosophy sections at bookstores. It's cool to relax, read and learn from the world's greatest thinkers. I know this may not sound like the most exciting thing to do on a Friday night, but it's fun to study how people behave and think. Besides, it beats hanging out at the self-help section. When my sons tag

Default Air Force Logo Commander’s Corner: Air Force and New Mexico share heritage
The Air Force has a long, rich history. New Mexico has been a part of that history since the very beginnings of the Air Force when we were just an infant service, and even earlier, to the days of the Army Air Forces and the Manhattan Project. This year we celebrate 60 years as an independent service, and at the same time we celebrate 60 years of

Default Air Force Logo Airmail: Why distribute fliers if prices are wrong?
Q. A couple of times a month "The Nucleus" has a four-color ad insert titled "Commissary Specials." While I was waiting for a transaction today, another customer was told by a clerk that the Kirtland Commissary does not honor the prices in that sales flier. The customer pointed out that someone at the front of the store was passing out the fliers.

Default Air Force Logo Career Focus: Assistance program outstanding
Our Air Force has gone through many changes in 60 years. One of the big changes happened in 1990 when we began downsizing the Air Force. At that time, we had 600,000 Airmen! Early retirements and separation bonuses flourished and many folks leaped at the opportunity to leave. With such a large number of military members re-entering the civilian

Default Air Force Logo Commander’s Corner : What can you do to improve your lifestyle?
As Airmen, whether we wear BDUs, a coat and tie, or blue jeans, we must be fit to fight. For uniformed Airmen, it begins with unit PT. Performing PT with our units is a good start, and it is good for unit cohesiveness, but our overall fitness and health requires much more than just a few jumping jacks and a little running. Last week, I attended a
