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.

It's that time of year again -- the kids are going back to school and the streets and sidewalks will be filled with children excited, or maybe not, to be getting back into the classroom.
