Holy City Tour
September 24, 2021
— On September 14, 2021, Chaplain Joel Kornegay and Historian Josh Mayes combined expertise and competencies to provide Joint Base Charleston an opportunity to visit five historic churches in the 'Holy City' – downtown Charleston. It was ideal weather for the ten JB Charleston teammates who ventured on the 2.8-mile walking tour. In the beginning, Mayes dispelled the myth the Holy City's moniker for Charleston was based on religious tolerance. Instead, he explained the name was "popularized in the 1930s in an obituary. The English settled South Carolina in Charles Towne Landing to be proprietary – a money maker." ...
Words matter in creating a climate and culture of trust
June 9, 2021
— Trust is built over time generally based on character, commitment, competence, and compassion. Service members (military and civilian) must trust each other in order to execute our no-fail mission. Sometimes, the environment created diminishes someone purposefully or accidentally, and everyone is empowered to prevent and stop those...

Social Connection through Human Dignity and Respect
April 7, 2021
— “People do not care how much you know until they know how much you care.” - Theodore Roosevelt The Community Action Team (JBCARES) is comprised of agencies that work together to track program trends and develop potential action plans that impact our Joint Base Charleston community – our collective goal is to always create and sustain a thriving connection culture. People programs that leverage and build “critical/soft skills” sometimes take a back burner to the prioritized programs that build the “hard skills” necessary to fly, fight and win in air, space and cyberspace. The Air Force excels at progressive upgrade training for the knowledge, skills and abilities to do the essential components of jobs and finding efficiencies for processes to streamline those jobs. I believe people are the critical component of mission accomplishment – and their deliberate development in skills that make them a consummate teammate and leader is equally important. ...
But it’s all natural!
March 23, 2021
— The air floods thick with pollen every spring. This is nature’s way of saying, “I’m alive and ready for the new year.” The ensuing blanket of yellow is followed by shouts and gestures resembling a mother’s reaction to finding a can of open paint in the same room with the rapture of children at play. Rain puddles mixed with pollen do resemble a puddle of yellow paint. Another common sound heard may be the noise of a power washer running or the screams of people being sprayed with cold water while trying to wash the unsightly pollen and other detritus off houses, vehicles, driveways and white picket fences. This is all a natural response to; “Hey … it’s dirty and needs washing!”...
Why we need to protect wetlands
September 30, 2020
— Many people living in the United States are unaware of the importance of wetlands and the need to protect them. It's an issue occasionally reported on television news and sometimes on programs found on cable TV channels such as The Discovery Channel, Animal Planet and the National Geographic Channel. But what are wetlands? And why are they so important? Wetlands are land in which the soil is saturated with moisture either permanently or during certain times during the year. Wetlands may be partially or completely covered by shallow pools of water and include lakes, rivers, streams, ponds, swamps and marshes. They can be saltwater, freshwater or brackish. Another way to describe a wetland is that it is an area of land having a water table that stands at or near the surface for a long enough season each year to support aquatic plants. ...
Suicide and Mental Health Awareness
September 23, 2020
— Life is filled with obstacles and stressors amplified by uncertainty related to the pandemic. As children return to school and parents return to work, managing stress in both environments requires a team approach to transition back into these environments and overcome difficulties. During these times it is vital to assist service members with adjusting to the work environment, help manage stress and find ways to remain connected while social distancing as pandemic precautions fluctuate. While brief periods of stress motivate us to achieve goals and develop creative solutions; extreme and ongoing stress can lead to financial problems, relationship concerns, job issues, changes in sleep and eating patterns or health challenges...
Retraining into Equal Opportunity for FY21
September 9, 2020
— This is one of the most meaningful times to retrain into the equal opportunity field. The field has been instrumental in discussions regarding societal trends of racism, sexism and many other current hot topics, and will continue to be critical in the future as a sustained by-law program. For service members interested in fairness, equality, human dignity and respect, the fiscal year 21 Retraining Advisory Listing on the myPers website showed the Equal Opportunity career field, AFSC “3F411,” has a total of 10 retraining quotas, five Tech. Sgt.’s and five Staff Sgt.’s, available for members to retrain into EO. ...
