Maj. David Cazier, 354th Fighter Wing deputy staff judge advocate.                        Understanding the costs of a DUI
Have you ever wondered what are the consequences of receiving a DUI? While most Airmen are aware there are negative consequences associated with drinking and driving, most probably do not understand the full impact of these consequences. Perhaps if Airmen better understood the true cost of drinking and driving they would be less likely to engage in

Command Chief Master Sgt. Earl Hannon official photo. Face-to-face leadership still most effective
The date is Sept. 1, 1993, and a young staff sergeant is at Kunsan AB, South Korea. His wife undergoes "routine" surgery back at his last duty station in the United States. The surgery appears to be a success, and an e-mail is sent to the staff sergeant's first sergeant at Kunsan. Now, it's Labor Day weekend, so the staff sergeant doesn't get the

Default Air Force Logo Eielson: Making the best better
As noted well outside the confines of Eielson AFB, in less than a year, the 18th Aggressor Squadron transformed from a go-to-war mission to a team dedicated to providing the best adversary training in the Air Force, and indeed the world! A significant element of this transformation lies in the ability to harness and improve on the best practices of

Lt. Col. Mark Murphy, 354th Maintenance Group deputy commander. The Value of Service
I learned a big lesson on service Aug. 4, 2008, when Eielson had the rare honor of hosting President Bush on a refueling stop as he traveled to Asia. It was an event Eielson will never forget -- a hangar full of Airmen and Soldiers getting to see the Commander in Chief up close, and perhaps even shaking his hand. An incredible amount of effort goes

The IG office is one of several grievance channels and there are four types of complaints for which the IG is uniquely responsible for: reprisal, restriction, improper mental health referrals, and fraud, waste, and abuse. The IG is also the focal point for all Congressional Inquiries.

1st Lt. Frank Hartnett, 354th Fighter Wing Public Affairs officer in charge. Education; how will you gain the edge?
The Air Force needs intelligent Airmen. More importantly, it needs Airmen who are willing to hone their skills and talents. We have been built by a tradition of honor and a legacy of valor, but it is our ingenuity and knowledge that has brought victory when American Airmen have stepped into harm's way. Aviation history is full of stories of men and

Default Air Force Logo Leisure necessary for healthy body, minds
"Otium Sanctum" That Latin phrase translates into Holy Leisure. It captures within it a mandate to decouple from the frantic pace of work. A mandate to relax and regain your focus on yourself, your family and your God. Holy, meaning to set apart and make sacred. Leisure meaning discretionary, enjoyable, non-work activities. Summer has Otium Sanctum

Default Air Force Logo Complying with standards makes AF great
As most Airmen know by now, the Secretary and Chief of Staff of the Air Force resigned from their positions as top Air Force leadership on June 5, 2008. This sparked much dialogue, in particular, of compliance with existing standards. Standards encompass many things. Checklists -- in reference to the Minot incident, was specifically mentioned by

Default Air Force Logo Personal responsibility in an automated world
When was the last time you printed your leave and earnings statement from MyPay and looked it over line-by-line? And are you sure your last enlisted or officer performance report made it into your military records? It is essential in the current era of automation and self-service processing that you monitor your own records. You have a more vested

Default Air Force Logo Setting Priorities: The Six Fs
As Airmen, we have been trained to prioritize our professional life, but when it comes to our life outside of work it might be a bit more challenging. At work, normally our supervisor and commander will set priorities for us; however, sometimes we are given numerous tasks and allowed to set our own priorities.  Even if you don't have a structured
