Tonight we honored a fallen soldier during a ramp ceremony at BAF. As his team unloaded the flag draped casket from the HMMWV and walked him up the C-17 ramp, five soldiers from the 10th Mountain Ban

Many senior leaders value the wrong things. We overvalue entertainment, image, compliance and control. We undervalue combat, results, creativity and trust.

I would normally never do this to a fellow airman, but I had the distinct pleasure of cock blocking a Tops in Blue tool bag on a flight to San Antonio a few months ago. We both totally lucked out by

What exactly is "cheating" on a boldface? You fuck it up, you probably die.

You know...a bunch of us huddled around the desk, sharing the answers at the beginning of the month, as the commander walks by...something like that.

Do other communities have the "periodic testing" every month? Pulled from the same MQF as the closed book check ride test?

Forward deployed on the flight line changing a engine and hearing them in the hanger with a rousing tribute and review to Walt Disney. If I was king I get rid of of the male soloists and keep the females who can sing and good looking dressed like any other female pop star with songs that are not 5 years old. The troops like rap, metal and top 40 plus have a couple civilian comedians who are not afraid to tell senior leadership jokes at their expense.

If the Air Force actually chose 4600 survey participants completely randomly, that's a legit sample. The shitty part is that leadership needs a survey to make a decision.

The surveymonkey poll may be bullshit but I couldn't pass up an opportunity to tell someone that TIB sucks. Worst case is some guy gets 10,000 responses for his Masters thesis survey.

...Exec given the task of finding out what the Wing thinks about TIB, "Survey Monkey" is probably the most appropriate level of effort...

I've actually done this with fantastic results.  Now if I could just get the OG/CC to realize what his Airmen want, it might be worthwhile.

Never thought I'd see it. Where will the Air Force turn for jazz hands in the future...

“The decision to pause and reassess the 2016 Tops in Blue season was a tough one,” said Lt. Gen. Gina Grosso....

The hell it was.  An overwhelming number of members have been screaming it from the rafters for years!  The SecAF has been gently nudged on this several times during her all-too-frequent All Calls.  

Good Riddance!

Kopack is just excited he was the first to post it on here.  I know I would be.

I'd like to believe that's true, but anyone who has such a lack of mission focus as to volunteer for that train wreck probably won't truly excel at much we actually expect of them.
