Quotes

...may not be able to change the entire Air Force, but you certainly have a tremendous influence on your little portion of the Air Force," he said. "When you empower others to do the mission, it's awesome to see how they are able to do more than what they think they can do, and that's what it's all about."
...He outlined the IG's mission as "Determining the combat and logistic effectiveness of the Air Force, insuring the maintenance of discipline and security, and investigating matters involving crime and other violations of public trust."
According to Phil Hansen, Regional Executive of the American Red Cross Northern Minnesota Region, "many people will spend the Labor Day weekend traveling and spending time with family and friends, no one should take a vacation from safety."
"The skills I develop here can help me to remain competitive for promotions," he said. "As you climb up the latter to superintendant positions, you tend to do a lot more public speaking, so it's going to help there as well."
