Default Air Force Logo Upcoming group reorganizations will streamline operations
In my last article, I compared life to a game of Texas Hold 'Em poker and the final statement was "I can't wait to see what is in your winning hand." Life certainly ran Team McChord hard over the past seven months. A short-notice Nuclear Surety Inspection, a Logistics Standardization Evaluation Program/Unit Compliance Inspection, an Air Traffic

Default Air Force Logo Pride in mission unites Team McChord
With the sun making a welcomed and unexpected visit during this past President's Day weekend, I like many, took advantage of the weather and headed out to see what the members of Team McChord did during their "down time". Of many experiences, I had the pleasure of seeing two retirees walking along a perimeter road, in conversation, pausing every

Default Air Force Logo Team McChord is synonymous with family
During the past two weeks, I have had the chance to meet many of the outstanding professionals comprising Team McChord.

Default Air Force Logo Team McChord: It's been a privilege
On Wednesday, we will pass the 62nd Airlift Wing flag from one wing commander to another. It is difficult for me to think of no longer being McChord's wing commander, because I have such strong affection for the men and women who make this a great and successful wing. We have accomplished much together, and had fun doing it.

Default Air Force Logo Team McChord: Ready when duty calls
Our motto, Global Reach for America, rang loud and true last week. A C-17 from McChord air dropped critical engine supplies to a disabled British fishing trawler caught for over two weeks in packed ice off Antarctica's northern coast. The Argos Georgia had a very grim outlook with dangerous icebergs and low-pressure weather systems looming in the
