Default Air Force Logo DoDDS teacher thanks her 'snow angels'
Saturday night, Feb. 16, my friend and I headed home after dinner at the Spaghetti Restaurant in Towada. The food was great and no alcohol was consumed, tea is my poison. At 9 p.m. in 20 degree weather, traveling slightly over 25 kilometers per hour on a narrow ice-slicked road, my black RAV-4 hit the skids. I careened into a snow-covered rice

Default Air Force Logo Empowering All Our Airmen
I've always believed that the Air Force leads the military in empowering our younger Airmen in making the right calls and acting accordingly based on those decisions. No matter if a person's rank is Airman Basic; we have counted on these young men and women to be thinkers and leaders vice just followers. This past exercise reaffirmed my belief in

Default Air Force Logo The importance of unwavering professionalism
We'd like to address a subject that we take very seriously and that's "Unwavering Professionalism." As U.S. military members, civilians or family members, we are all considered ambassadors for the U.S. to the Japanese. Military members no matter what service are considered U.S. officials.

As Airmen we all go the extra mile to ensure our personal and professional lives are in order. Being on solid financial footing is one very important step in the right direction. You can start by taking advantage of the Thrift Savings Plan, or TSP, which is a long-term retirement savings plan with an eye toward helping you reach your financial

Default Air Force Logo Do your part in safeguarding information
In today's world of instant information, every one of us needs to be on guard. Our adversaries are constantly making efforts to gather information critical to our operational capabilities. This information doesn't have to be classified or sensitive. A simple phone conversation about a deployment, or an e-mail detailing a shortage of certain

Default Air Force Logo Education is key for Airmen
As the most technologically superior and powerful Air Force in the world, we are all aware that we must maintain our intellectual superiority. This takes a lifelong commitment to education for all Airmen - both officer and enlisted.
