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

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.

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!

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

Default Air Force Logo Commander’s Corner: Spend hard-earned time off with family, friends
As the kids head back to school, it may seem that vacation opportunities are also winding down. That may be true for longer, extended vacations in the family wagon to see the World's Largest Ball of String, but days off to spend with family and friends are just as important.

Default Air Force Logo Airmail: Insult to guards accidental
Q. The Aug. 10 Nucleus newspaper contained an Airmail article titled "What can be done about high music volume in cars?" Buried in the middle of the article was a statement unrelated to the main point that I feel was an insult to our gate guards and uncalled for. A.
