Default Air Force Logo The Misadventures of Airman Snuffy McDufflebag and Master Sgt. Johnny Mentor
What a wild week! Let's see, the Air Force turned 59 Monday, hawks attacked more than 100 people in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil, my Dallas Cowboys improved to 1-1, (did you see that Eagles game), and my wife celebrated the Michigan Wolverines 47-21 thrashing of the Notre Dame Fighting Irish. (she was born in Ann Arbor, Mich.) While all that is

Wow, what an exciting couple of weeks, Team Incirlik doing great on the NSI, the start of the college and professional football seasons, and yes, the two biggest awards at the 58th annual Emmy Awards (best comedy and dramatic series) went to first-timers "The Office" and "24," two quality shows. While the last couple of weeks have been hectic, Team

Airman Snuffy McDufflebag did it! I mean it. He really did it. He lived up to the old adage "The sun even shines on a dog's ... face sometimes, Uh no! That's not it. OK, this one "Even a blind pig can find ... corn," No! Alright "If ties are like kissing your sister then losing is like kissing your grandmother with her teeth out!" Wait, that

Unless you just arrived here or have no TV, can't read, really have trouble focusing at work and are deaf, you know there is an inspection beginning this week. As Col. "Tip" Stinnette said in his awe-inspiring Pattonesque speech to the members of Team Incirlik, we all know when the time comes "We'll Know What to Do." Well, those two commander's

I got a new motto for you, "CAC cards - Don't leave home without them." Let that soak in for a second. Then replace CAC cards with gate passes, blue books, passports and any other official documents you have to keep up with at the 'Lik.' Before I get started, I do have a question. Why do we call them CAC cards? I mean, CAC stands for common access

Wow, I can't believe my sons will be in first and second grade this year at Incirlik Elementary and my daughter will be attending pre-K classes. Man, where does the time go! All the time I've spent getting my children ready for the upcoming school year, got me to thinking -- Why did I join the Air Force 10 years ago? Was it to travel the world -

I had to wipe the sleep out my eyes as I entered the base theater Aug. 2. It was a bittersweet morning I was missing PT, but I had to sit through this mandatory Airmen's Call. Ughh! -- Just kidding or am I? Yeah, anyway with the dining facility closing I wanted to hear what the plans were for feeding my Airmen. As Chief Master Sgt. O.G. Hardball,

After returning from my TDY, I was anxious to do my part in helping the displaced Americans from Lebanon. The base was all a buzz, building the Patriot Village, while providing housing, telephone access, a 24-hour BX/Shoppette, a children's play area, chaplain's assistance and medical services for more than 1,700 people transitioning back to the

I was at the hospital finishing up some last minute out processing for an up coming TDY when I ran into my good friend, Master Sgt. Jonny Mentor. He had this look on his face like his dogs, Tango and Cash, got ran over by somebody speeding through housing. Slow it down people, my kids play out there! Anyway, I asked him what was wrong and he said

I usually have lunch with Master Sgt. Johnny Mentor every other week and he tells me the stories about the Airmen he supervises. He has five Airmen and according to him most of them are good, hard working people. Occasionally he says he has to "kick them in the pants," I toned it down since we have children who read our publication, but for the
