  • Reservists connect with the past at Tuskegee Airmen gathering

    Behind each successful event are the efforts of a work force blending into a seamless process of teamwork, professional presentation and event coordination. The 33rd annual convention of the Tuskegee Airmen Inc. Aug 4-8 in Omaha, Neb., exemplified these attributes and more. “From the opening ceremony to the awards banquet to the forums on military
  • Daughter challenges mother in sprint to chief promotion

    A daughter in Minnesota and her mother in Texas had a race recently. No track shoes or racing slicks were needed. No one handed out yellow jerseys, and the checkered flag waved blue.

  • Iraqi Freedom mission takes Reserve colonel back to Hungary

    When Peter Doby was 5 years old, Soviet tanks were patrolling his neighborhood.

  • Space aggressors sail into military's newest frontier

    That glint you see in the corner of his eye as he looks toward the sky could be a star. Maybe it’s the noon sun high in the Colorado sky.

  • Air Force is a way of life for McMillan clan

    In his poem “Road Less Traveled,” Robert Frost wrote, “Two roads diverged in a wood, and I — I took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference.” For one Air Force chief master sergeant at the Air Reserve Personnel Center in Denver, the road less traveled has become one well traveled by her family. Chief Master Sgt. Karen
  • Reserve medics build NATO ties during Cooperative Key '05
