Default Air Force Logo Use your voice, vote, to be heard on Capitol Hill
When I enlisted in 1977, there were more than 600,000 Airmen in the Air Force. In the very near future, because of budget cuts, force shaping, outsourcing and privatization, the number will most likely be half its current size. As our Air Force continues to get smaller, who is speaking for us on Capitol Hill? A better question might be, "What are

Default Air Force Logo Know your rights; when in doubt call ADC
If your first sergeant calls you into his office and says you are being charged with a crime, you are being accused of a crime by the Office of Special Investigation or Security Forces, or you may have done something illegal and you want advice about what to do next, call the Area Defense Counsel. As the new ADC on the defense team here, I am a

Default Air Force Logo Pivotal time in Air Force calls for new perspective
As Airmen we will soon, and some have already, feel the effects of having to do less with less. Why is this? Take into consideration our aging fleet of aircraft, which need to be replaced and debt from the current war, which is soon expected to exceed an estimated $320 billion.

Default Air Force Logo Airman finds ways to cope with marriage separation
"Soldiers' divorce rates up sharply," a USA Weekly headline reads. Due to the war on terror and longer deployments, more military couples are calling it quits, reports say. It's hard being away from the one you love and even harder when there is nothing you can do about it. I'm a newlywed and even though my husband and I have a great relationship,

Default Air Force Logo Never say never - just do it
No one ever said you had to be "rail thin" and a six-minute miler to be considered a runner. Some run for the great feeling afterward when endorphins kick in and others run to compete. The point is just to get out there and get moving to get yourself in shape. Being physically fit is important for the mind, body and soul. The problem is most of us

Default Air Force Logo Tell the Air Force story ... it's your story to tell
The American public loves a great story. With that said, the Air Force has that great story and it's your story to tell. Not surprising to anyone in this day and age as we are fighting a Global War on Terror, there are great stories in the making every day not only in Iraq, Afghanistan, the Pacific theater and a number of countries in Africa, but
