The three Ps

First things first, my name is Brett Newman and I am the Maintenance Group Commander. I want to thank you all for the warm welcome you have given my family and me. We feel a true sense of family here at the 934th Airlift Wing.
That being said, I would like to share with you a portion of my change of command comments. I talked about the three 'P's" (not to be confused with "P3's" for you Navy types).

The three "P's" are: people, planes and processes.
In a nutshell, what I am talking about is that if we take care of the people who take care of the planes, and continuously improve our processes, we all succeed! I would like to focus on the people right now.

I think it is fair to say we have had successful year here at the 934th AW. We have seen a boatload of construction completed. We passed a communications inspection with flying colors and we blazed a trail for all others to follow at the AOR.

Congratulations to you all! However, our Air Force family has also been met with unexpected tragedy this year as well. With this being the Year of the Air Force Family and the holiday season just around the corner, I would like to ask you all to take a moment and be sure to check on one another. Especially remember to check on those families in need. In this time of an unstable economy, things can get and be difficult.

I said at the beginning, my family feels the sense of "family" here. They are involved with the Key Family Member Program (aka Key Spouse Program) to aid in taking care of our AF family. My family will do all that they can to help take care of you and your families.
So, from my family to your family, have a joyous holiday season and a happy new year!
