GRAND FORKS AIR FORCE BASE, N.D. -- A KC-135 stratotanker prepares to refuel an F-15 Eagle over the midwest August 13. (U.S. Air Force photo/Airman 1st Class Chad Kellum) Graphics flight
My normal job usually consists of long hours in front of a computer drawing up amazing works of art and designing layouts for my customers.

So, I geared up and packed for the long flight. I arrived at

Default Air Force Logo Col. Hull: Exercise because the threats are real
We're gearing up for some pretty heavy exercising during the next couple months. No, I'm not talking about running a few laps at the gym in our sneakers and Air Force PT uniforms, although that form of exercise is important. I'm referring to several training exercises on the near horizon. What we do and how we perform during these exercises will

Default Air Force Logo My Airman brothers
We have a choice as Airmen. We can either put on our uniforms and go to work, or we can put on our uniforms and serve our country. Please don't get the wrong idea. This isn't just another rant about patriotism from some Airman who writes for the Air Force. It's a rant about family ... from an Airman who writes for the Air Force. The line between

Default Air Force Logo AFSO21 made a believer out of me
Air Force Smart Operations for the 21st Century -- is it just one of those new catch-phrases or current buzzwords? I used to think so. I know that it sounds shocking coming from a senior NCO, but after almost 24 years of service and the "baggage" of being shell-shocked from total quality management, I honestly thought that AFSO21 was just another

Default Air Force Logo Liberty under law empowering youth, ensuring democracy
When you enlisted or were commissioned in the Air Force, you swore to support and defend the Constitution of the United States. What does the Constitution mean to you? When was the last time you talked with your kids about the Constitution? What have you told them about our country and system of government? As Airmen, it's important for us to serve

Default Air Force Logo Network 56: bridging the gap between enlisted ranks
When you hear the name Network 56, what comes to mind? Many people would say it's an association, like Top 3, for active duty members in the ranks of E-5 and E-6. But is that really what Network 56 is all about? Not quite. Network 56 is an organization that serves as an internal resource for networking among staff sergeants and tech sergeants to
