My first few months as your region commander have flown by at an alarming rate.  I enjoy meeting the amazing volunteers of the North Central Region and learning about all the good work you do as I travel to events.  I may be biased but I think that NCR has some of the finest volunteer Airmen in the nation.  I am inspired by the members I have met on my travels!

Let me recap my experiences in this new commentary called “Command Trajectory.”  I want to thank Major Daren Jaeger of Kansas Wing for his assistance with the title.  Why did I choose trajectory as the name?  One reason is that it has an aerospace connection and that is one of our missions.  Second, according to Wikipedia, a trajectory is, “the path that a moving object follows through space as a function of time.”  What better way to describe the path I take on my journey as commander?  Finally, a trajectory is about where we are and where we want to be.  The plan is for new “Command Trajectory” columns to appear on the website shortly after the first of each month.
