  • Get Out of Your Comfort Zone and Embrace Change

    I welcome change with a vision of understanding that change will bring a positive transformation in the way we define leadership. Socrates once said, “The secret of change is to focus all of your energy, not on fighting the old, but on building the new.”
  • Building on a Solid Foundation

    Heroes of the Air Force Reserve: Our success as an organization and our achievements as individuals depend on having a solid foundation. A solid foundation provides a basis for us to continue building, the flexibility to adjust to changing conditions, and as Hurricanes Florence and Michael recently taught us, the faith that we can survive and rebuild after even the worst of storms.
  • From the Top

    Heroes of the Air Force Reserve: I’m honored and humbled to take command of this outstanding organization.
  • Chief’s View

    (Editor’s note: Gen. Maryanne Miller assumed command of Air Mobility Command on Sept. 7, becoming the first traditional Reservist to be promoted to four-star general and lead an Air Force major command outside of Air Force Reserve Command. She served as chief of Air Force Reserve and AFRC commander from July 2016 to September 2018.)
  • IMAs play critical role in our success

    As I travel across the command and spend time with our Airmen, I find that Individual Mobilization Augmentees (IMAs) consistently experience unique challenges.
  • To remain combat ready, we must continue to evolve, adapt

    We live in a world that is constantly changing. Today, technology evolves at a rapid pace. The global-geopolitical environment is always in flux. Equipment, strategy, tactics, theaters of operation and adversaries shift over time. If our Air Force Reserve is to remain a combat-ready force, we must continue to evolve and adapt.
  • Chief’s View: Knowing our past helps secure our future

    As the Air Force Reserve celebrates its 70th anniversary, I thought this would be the perfect time to talk about our heritage. The Reserve Citizen Airmen of yesterday paved the way for where we are today. We certainly would not be the elite fighting force we are right now without the foundation built by those who came before us.
  • Make safety a top priority on and off the job

    So far this year, the Air Force has experienced 15 Class A mishaps. Tragically, we have lost 18 lives.
  • Enlisted force development must remain a priority

    Every Citizen Airman is a vital asset to Air Force Reserve Command and enlisted force development is critical to cultivating leaders to succeed in strategic planning and executing mission operations.
  • Together we must develop exceptional Air Force Reserve leaders

    I recently had the opportunity to meet with my top senior leaders to discuss a broad range of critical challenges affecting our Air Force Reserve. Reflecting afterwards, there was one underlying truth that stood out during every discussion: Reserve Citizen Airmen are our greatest strength.
