  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.)
