‘Tis the season for the three Rs.

No, I’m not talking about reading, ‘riting and ‘rithmatic. I’m talking about the need to refill, rejuvenate, and reconnect.

With all that 2020 threw our way, it’s understandable that we’re tired, worn out and frustrated. That’s why - this year in particular - it’s even more important than ever to take some time over the holidays to spend with family, friends and loved ones. I need you to refill, rejuvenate and reconnect.

There’s an age-old debate on whether a partially filled glass is half full or half empty, but the more important point is to realize the glass is refillable.  So if you hoist a glass this holiday season, please do so safely and responsibly.  But also make sure to refill the glass that is you. We need every Airman back safe so we can meet the challenges that 2021 is sure to bring! 

Happy holidays!!!
