WRIGHT-PATTERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Ohio -- The other night I was driving home from work listening to the radio. A commercial came on for Mountain Dew and Jason Aldean, a popular country singer, said, "This is how I do" -- then went on to explain his life philosophy. Later I saw a commercial with another music star that was advertising for Mountain Dew. He also said, "This is how I do" and explained his philosophy. That "how I do" tagline prompted me to think about what we do as NCOs. In essence, "this is how we do."
In my 29 years in the Air Force I have seen a lot of things change but there has always been one constant -- Airmen. It does not matter what you are engaged in there are Airmen making it happen.

However, our technology may be having a detrimental effect on our team.
