Default Air Force Logo Courtesy and cleanliness add to gym success
In addition to packing clean socks, headphones, shorts and bottled water, Sabers should start bringing some courtesy when they enter the fitness center for their work-outs. Of about 15,000 people tied to the 52nd Fighter Wing, many are not only required, but also eager to exercise to stay in shape.

Default Air Force Logo Attitude is everything
This week I have followed a sport I never really paid attention to in the past. I sat and watched tennis during the U.S. Open not because of the sport itself, but because of the story unfolding on the screen. Melanie Oudin, ranked number 70 in the world, was beating opponents she was not supposed to beat. The competitors were ranked much higher and

Default Air Force Logo Growing from Failure
"If everything you do works, you are not trying hard enough." -Unknown We all experience failure in our lives. At one time or another, we run into an obstacle that stymies our intellect or abilities.

Default Air Force Logo Chaplains lead the way to spiritual fitness

We are all leaders no matter what our rank or title. Our goal is to accomplish the mission while helping our troops grow. Whether we are a parent and our mission is to get our children to clean their room or a commander tasked to manage airfield operations, we all have to inspire ourselves and others to get things done.

Default Air Force Logo Basic values!
Making a difference in today's world starts with you! It doesn't matter if you are an airman basic, general officer, retiree or family member.

Default Air Force Logo Fast track to losing stripes
April 17 started off just like every Friday. Wake up, get ready for the night shift and get through the work day to start my weekend. What I didn't see coming was the decision I would make at the end of my night, a decision that would ultimately put my career at risk. I made a choice that would affect many more people than just myself. My name was
