Default Air Force Logo 101 CDOS Week 1: Drinking and driving
It was a sunny, cool, autumn day in Lawton, Oklahoma. I was 16 years old pimping in my beige 1981 Datsun 210 - with the dark brown fur seat covers - hey, it was the 80's. Attempting to show off to my girlfriend and buddies, I peeled out of the Eisenhower High School parking lot - and then was promptly pulled over for speeding 10 mph over the limit

Default Air Force Logo Remembering the Holocaust

Default Air Force Logo Preparedness: are you ready?
I've learned sometimes you have to deal with problems, and sometimes you have to deal with Alaskan-sized problems. We have all dealt with regular problems; driving your car on empty, running to the commissary moments before it closes or staying up late watching over a newborn. But Alaskan-sized problems aren't so easy to tackle.Last week, a broken

Default Air Force Logo Taxes are constitutional
We are fortunate to live in a country where we get to pay taxes. Those taxes pay for our highways, law enforcement, armed forces and many other public services that sometimes we take for granted. Just about every day you can hear news about countries that don't have such services . . . Imagine living in such places.The federal government's power to

You may not have met Technical Sergeant Stephen McGrath, but he works in the Explosive Ordinance Disposal shop here. On Nov. 18, 2007, Sergeant McGrath was on a deployment in Iraq when an enemy force engaged him and a platoon of soldiers with direct small arms fire.

Default Air Force Logo Key principles to help you win in 2010
Like many of you, I enjoyed the college football bowl games that occurred over the past week. Each team that competed had a winning season, and you can believe that none of them became successful by accident. The coaches and staff of these teams did more than hope for success; as a wise man once told me, "hope is not a plan." These leaders spent

Default Air Force Logo Doing time in Alaska
As we begin the second half of our long winter and daylight hours begin to grow, many people in Alaska start to get cabin fever. Being cooped up all winter with the lack of daylight is a tough situation for most families to face, especially for the first time. I think back to when my family and I first arrived here in Alaska, late October 2008, and

Default Air Force Logo The Christmas Spirit
Christmas: It means so many things to so many people - for some, the birth of a savior; for others, a time to reflect; and for still more, a time to share with family and friends. And for a vast number of people across the United States, it means - or at least entails - shopping like at no other time of the year...myself included.I recently found
