Default Air Force Logo Career Focus: Blue Star Mothers give every Airman a hero’s welcome
I am always amazed at how quickly time passes. It also amazes me to think of the thousands of wonderful people I've met serving as an aircraft maintainer, instructor, career advisor and acting first sergeant.

Default Air Force Logo Commander’s Corner: Get out, experience Team Kirtland
One of the most repeated comments heard after Air Force members attend in-residence Professional Military Education is that the best thing about the course was the chance to interact and learn from their Air Force teammates. Our new Airman's Creed reminds us of all that binds us together as Airmen. However, our culture is a mosaic rich in different

Default Air Force Logo Career Focus: Key spouses have connection power
Have you ever thought about the number of people who make Team Kirtland's missions happen? Airmen are launching fixed- and rotary-wing aircraft, and training to be, or serving as aircrews.

Default Air Force Logo Commander’s Corner: Save our TDYs, turn down your thermostat
When you turn your thermostat down at work, you wouldn't think the energy that you're saving could translate into more temporary duty assignments for yourself or other Airmen. However, that's exactly the thinking that's taking place at Kirtland and across the Air Force right now. It's no secret that the Air Force is searching for clever ways to

I'd like to thank Colonel Suminsby for offering up this week's Commander's Corner to me so I can make some final comments as I depart for Fairchild AFB, Wash.

Default Air Force Logo Commander’s Corner: New Air Force creed brings honor, pride
Last week, Gen. T. Michael Moseley released his monthly CSAF's Vector and with it, the new Airman's Creed. For those of you who haven't read the new creed, I encourage you to take a few minutes to study the 18 lines on Page 7 that will replace all Air Force-related creeds currently in existence.

Default Air Force Logo Career Focus: Pay yourself first

Default Air Force Logo Career Focus: Don’t make the wrong decision
When I volunteered to serve as my squadron's additional duty first sergeant, I was very motivated to learn about this prestigious and demanding position. I knew it was going to be tough.
