Mr Herrera, SAF/FM, had a great visit with Team Maxwell/Gunter! Thanks to Eaker/FM, DFM&CS, 42d CPTS, and the Business and Enterprise Systems Directorate for hosting us! It’s always great to share perspectives and exchange ideas.
Thanks HQ AMC/FM, Col Whitfill & Chief Rice, for inviting/hosting me at your leadership summit. It was great being back at the home of Rapid Global Mobility and to see our leaders tackling challenges to ensure this core mission remains resourced and airmen financed. Thanks also to the 375th CPTS! Interacting with FMers and sharing perspectives is always the best part of any visit!! Bonus: seeing MGen (ret) Brown, COO Dept of Education!
FM Teammates, please take the time to hear CMSAF Wright's resiliency message (video) embedded in this article. We've lost too many airmen to suicide this year and must focus our collective energy and efforts to combat it. I'm proud to serve with each and every one of you because I know financial managers work extremely hard to resource missions and finance airmen. We're not a large career field, which most often feels like a tight-knit family. Continue to take care of each other and make sure to lean on support structures on/off duty to decompress and recharge. Lastly, let's continue to minimize money as a stressor for our customers by meeting/exceeding their expectations.

FM! We’re wrapping up our Developmental Teams this week. The level of detail panel members comb through to appraise talent across the career field is astonishing. Vectoring financial managers to key leadership/development positions that will benefit the AF and the FMer’s growth is a tough task with a vastly talented workforce. On our enlisted DT, your Chiefs reviewed MSgt records to vector leaders to critical missions. Thanks 502d CPTS for hosting a JBSA FM Enlisted Call! Loved hearing from you! Also great to see MGen (ret) Flowers, AF’s longest serving airman and FM Legend, Col (ret) Hutchinson and Chief (ret) Castenada (☹️ no pic). The connection from their time as DT members to this week brings everything full circle.
Morning inspiration!! Also note Col Jason Corrothers, precious BMT Commander - now our HQ PACAF/FM Director, in this update. We (FM) have one CC, Chief, six MTIs currently turn citizens into American Airmen!! FM represent!!

FM!! Your senior leaders spent the week discussing the future of the career field in Colorado Springs, the home of HQ AF Space Command. We are working to deliver the FM the AF needs for the future fight. Even in a post AFIPPS environment, FM will remain essential to maintaining air/space/cyberspace superiority because we resource missions and finance the airmen who perform them!! It was great to have our front range airmen hear from our highest ranking military leader, MGen John Pletcher, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Budget. He’s a champion for Airmen and ensure we continue to advance our lines of efforts to deliver financial excellence. Thanks also to our MAJCOM Chiefs for sharing their perspective and shaping the future through their collective experiences.
Congratulations to the newest Air Force Reserve FM Major Selects!
Good Morning FM!! I had a blast attending the 2019 American Society of Military Comptrollers Professional Development Institute. Got a chance to further my knowledge and leadership through the workshops. Best of all, seeing familiar faces and meeting new ones to enhance my AF journey. So thankful for TSgt Curtis Krenzkie, AF Wounded Warrior Ambassador, for sharing his amazing story of resilience and reminding us we’re stronger when we ask for help. It’s a good reminder that we serve with phenomenal airmen and we’re all “One Team, One Fight”!
We enjoyed hearing from the Honorable John Roth providing a Financial Management update to the 2019 American Society of Military Comptrollers and Palace Acquires.
Team, It gives me great pleasure to announce the newest FM Master Sergeant selects. This is a significant accomplishment in their careers and I am extremely proud of their selection. We wish each of them continued success and look forward to them leading the next generation of Airmen. Best, JR
