Fiscal responsibility in the New Year – Every Airman’s charge
October 24, 2018
— Last month, we closed out a successful Fiscal Year 2018. We saw significant increases to our defense budget as the president and Congress showed their support to modernize the military, sustain ongoing readiness recovery efforts and ensure we’re prepared for future conflicts with a $654 billion budget. At the 21st Space Wing, we executed a $353 million budget by providing vital infrastructure and mission support capabilities to the wing and our mission partners and pushing resources to our space warfighters worldwide...
Passing on a few of life’s important lessons
October 19, 2018
— It is no secret that I like quotes. In the past, I have used them at our wing’s Newcomer Orientation, with recruits from the Developmental and Training Flights, and even at our Commander’s Call...
Positive parenting really pays off
October 12, 2018
— Positive parenting really pays off. This was evident by seeing the product of the hard work of Mrs. Aretha Adams, mother of JB Charleston’s newest commander, Colonel Terrance Adams. I had a pleasant conversation with her on Sept. 5, 2018, after the Change of Command Ceremony at the Charleston Club. I chuckled and laughed with her about her son sharing with the audience that there were “drugs” in his home when he was growing up...
The importance and power of feedback
September 26, 2018
— I once heard General Everhart say, “Feedback isn’t personal, it’s professional,” and it struck me how much truth that statement contained. As humans and, unfortunately as Airmen, we often avoid giving honest feedback because we want to be liked. As a result, we avoid the confrontation that comes with honest feedback, which makes us feel better but hurts the individual and organization as a whole...
USAF Combat Camera: talented Airmen with a particular set of skills
September 21, 2018
— Today’s national security challenges are compelling leaders at all levels to identify priorities that focus on improving who we are as Airmen and what we deliver as joint warfighters in air, space and cyberspace. Airmen must develop themselves by: capitalizing on education and training opportunities; being knowledgeable about what they do, why they do it and understanding their unique impact on the mission; and leveraging their talents to be effective in today’s Air Force and joint warfighting environment. This includes public affairs Airmen assigned to the 1st Combat Camera Squadron. ...
It's been an honor and a privilege to serve in Charleston
September 19, 2018
— Next month, after a little more than three years as commanding officer of Space and Naval Warfare (SPAWAR) Systems Center Atlantic, I will pass the mantle of leadership to Capt. Wesley Sanders in a traditional Navy change of command ceremony. In these last 1,113 days as CO of SSC Atlantic, I have traveled the globe to meet our deployed employees, industry partners and customers. From Stuttgart to Naples to Bahrain to Rota and around the world, I am amazed at how our strong, dedicated team provides information warfare solutions for Navy, Marine Corps, joint and combined operations...
‘Be There’— Suicide Prevention, often a difficult topic
September 17, 2018
— “Be there” is the official Department of Defense theme of this year’s Suicide Prevention Campaign and September is Suicide Prevention Month. So, I was staring at the web page www.dspo.mil/2018SPM, looking for inspiration, when a visitor came in my room and pointed at a photo on my desk of Brig. Gen. James Fontanella, my first commander in late 2013. Serendipity! A story came to mind that encompassed the "Be There" theme. It started with one phone call and some knowledgeable, compassionate individuals who formed a telephone chain across several states to intervene in the life of a warrior and his family...
An appointment missed by you is an appointment missed by two
September 6, 2018
— Naval Health Clinic Charleston encourages patients to cancel appointments 24 hours in advance. An appointment missed by you is really missed by two. When a patient misses or “no-shows” for a medical or dental appointment, it keeps another service member, family member, or other beneficiary from using that appointment slot for the care they need. This means it can also impact the medical and dental readiness of the military fighting force. ...
Cosmetic surgery in the military has considerations, limitations
September 5, 2018
— In 2016, Americans spent more than $16 billon on cosmetic surgery. Military personnel are no exception. However, unlike our civilian counterparts, limitations exist for military personnel seeking cosmetic surgery...
Challenging conventional wisdom with creative messages
August 30, 2018
— There are numerous business books on the market intended to help guide improvement activities for organizations. One book I particularly like is titled “If it Ain’t Broke. Break It!: And Other Unconventional Wisdom for a Changing Business World,” by Robert J. Kriegel and Louis Palter. Now don’t jump to the conclusion that it means break up the organization and then rebuild it. It is more in line with “seeking a new way to think.”...
