  • Enhancing trust is the first step to reforming the organization

    In my last commentary, I rolled out three individual lines of effort – comprehensive readiness, deliberate talent management and enhancing organizational trust – to align with our strategic priorities. Today, I want to focus on LOE3, enhancing organizational trust.
  • New leaders poised to do great things for the command

    The success of any organization depends on its leaders. The Air Force Reserve is comprised of numerous units, and each has its own set of leaders. Some manage a section, others helm a numbered Air Force, but all are leaders. We rely on each and every one to conduct our day-to-day operations and provide outstanding support to our Airmen and their families.
  • Organizational improvement key to mission readiness, taking care of Airmen

    As a commander, my goals have always been to ensure mission readiness and enhance the quality of life for my Airmen. These are complex objectives, which can only be accomplished through multiple lines of effort. One initiative which substantially contributes toward both goals is organizational improvement.
  • Enlisted force lines of effort will help us meet strategic goals

    Since being selected as the command chief, I have been routinely asked about my focus areas for the enlisted force. At first, I was a little hesitant to establish focus areas because our priorities of prioritizing strategic depth while accelerating readiness, developing resilient leaders and reforming the organization have been clearly defined by our commander, Lt.

  • It’s Been an Amazing Journey

    As I reflect on my career and prepare for retirement from my beloved Air Force Reserve, I am so thankful for having had the opportunity to serve my country and I am so excited to see what all of you will do in the future.In my journey, I have laughed, cried and sang. My two amazing sons were born. I built friendships and found a family with all of
  • 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.
