It is truly an honor to serve the Airmen of Air Force Materiel Command as your command chief. Every day I witness incredible things that our Airmen are doing for our command, our Air Force, and our nation. As I travel and engage with our Airmen, mentorship is a topic that often comes up. It’s a subject that I am extremely passionate about, and I appreciate every opportunity I have to discuss it.

Default Air Force Logo Viewpoints: Mentors provide guidance, expectations amid new Air Force experiences
I started with the Air Force as a Palace Acquire intern roughly 18 months ago. Adjusting to the Air Force culture has been exciting, but challenging. There is so much to learn and remember, such as the many protocols, the vast number of acronyms, and even just navigating the two areas that make up Wright-Patterson Air Force Base. While this adjustment has taken time and effort, my mentors have made it easier, and have had a huge impact on my career.

When I started my career as a Palace Acquire intern in the Human Resources field, I had no idea what I was getting myself into. My first day -- more realistically my first couple of months -- was a culture shock. I knew nothing about the federal civilian world or military protocols and procedures. My new colleagues and section chief helped tremendously with getting me acclimated to my new environment.

Default Air Force Logo Viewpoints: All because of my mentors
The words, ‘U.S. Air Force’ are sewn into my jacket that I wear every day, because of my mentors. Each stage of life requires role models to help you along the way, and it is no different in the professional world. In 8th grade, I went to Colorado on a family vacation, and my parents took me to see the United States Air Force Academy. We went there because it was a tourist spot, but little did we know that it would change my life forever.
