Words from the Commander

Chief Master Sgt. Brian Lewis, 47th Operations Group superintendent, encourages Airmen to explore their "why." He says, "Allow your 'why' to fuel passion within you. This will then push you to higher heights. At least it did for me." (U.S. Air Force photo by Senior Airman Anne McCready)
Col. Lee Gentile, 47th Flying Training Wing commander, coins the Operation XL Junior Deployment after having successfully completed their mock deployment day on Nov. 2, 2019 at Laughlin Air Force Base, Texas. After the events of the day, Junior Deployers watched a MWD demonstration and were coined by Col. Gentile before having a provided lunch. (U.S. Air Force photo by Senior Airman John A. Crawford)

Col. Carey Jones, 47th Operations Group commander, shares her thoughts on connection throughout a unit and key takeaways that lead to unit success. "The key to mitigating this pitfall is shifting our mindset outward," said Jones. "Take a moment to consider the needs of others, their challenges, objectives and focus on collective results."
