BUCKLEY AIR FORCE BASE, Colo. -- Panthers, welcome to Buckley's leadership corner.
Over the next year, this page will be a place for Team Buckley leaders to address important issues affecting the health, morale and welfare of our workforce and the missions we collectively support. By exploring local, regional and national topics important to members of Team Buckley, we hope to clarify, enlighten and entertain in line with Department of Defense priorities as well as our own.
Why is this important?
We think offering commentaries from your commanders and Chiefs can help you glean perspectives and viewpoints you otherwise may not have seen or heard. This will help build unit cohesion and understanding which, in turn, should help you better see the "big picture". You each play a key role in the defense of our nation and we want you to fully realize your importance to the mission and feel fulfilled in your work.
By reading through some of the coming month's commentaries, you will gain an appreciation for the numerous unique missions and tasks your fellow teammates accomplish on a daily basis. Not only will you learn about other units within the wing, but also some of the 84 partner organizations we host here at Buckley.
We hope the candid and honest words you'll find here will help you relate to the command on not only an intellectual level, but a human one; that these pieces will inspire trust in your chain-of- command and that they will stimulate curiosity and critical thinking about the way we work as a team and as a base.
