Command Chief's Commentary

  • Resilience tactical pause: It's OK not to feel OK

    As you are probably aware, the chief of staff and the chief master sergeant of the Air Force directed all units to institute a tactical pause to address the suicide problem affecting the Total Force.
  • 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.
  • Enlisted force lines of effort will help us meet strategic goals

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 70 Years and Still Going Strong

    As we enter the new year, Reserve Citizen Airmen across the country are gearing up for another unit training assembly – getting ready for two days of hard work at their squadrons after working 40 hours at their civilian jobs.
