  • A Partner in Battle and a Furry Companion

    Nothing in this world can compare to the bond between humans and their animals. There is a special connection people have with their beloved animals that is wildly unique and can never be replicated. For U.S. Air Force Tech. Sgt.

Military Working Dog Sam and Tejada were an inseparable duo and had a bond no time or distance could ever break.

  • Learning to be a Guardian while a “casual lieutenant”

    When you think of a “casual lieutenant” you probably don’t think of writing strategic messages that are distributed to thousands of people, drafting talking points for a general officer, or coordinating and narrating a two star “All Call” with 300 personnel attending. However, that is exactly what I have done, and more, in my first 2 months in the Space Force. In anticipation of my Officer Undergraduate Space Training date, I was lucky enough to be selected to work on the commander’s action group for Maj. Gen. DeAnna Burt, the Commander of the Combined Force Space Component Command, and it has been a priceless experience in my development as a Guardian.
