"Welcome to Malta. Welcome to paradise," the taxi driver said with a smile as we stepped onto one of the island's costal jewels--St. Julian's.

Upon arriving at our destination, the streets were flooded with the sound of live music, the smell of seafood, and the light of the sun slowly setting over the beaches.

The island country of Malta is a popular tourist destination located just south of Sicily. Out of all the European capitals, the capital of Malta has the warmest winters and the highest amount of sunshine per day. The island is also one of the world's smallest and most densely populated countries, with residents speaking both Maltese and English.

COMMENTARY: A life of balance

This post was originally published by RAF Mildenhall - RAF Mildenhall Latest News

Three concepts spring to mind as I consider how to prepare the Airmen of tomorrow: develop a team mentality, network and know yourself.

Developing a team mentality starts by recognizing the boundaries already established, getting in sync with them and using the structure to carry the team to the next level. It's the time for building technical proficiency while learning what drives the machine forward. This doesn't happen without the members of the team transitioning from an individual to a team mentality.

This is used not only to prevent major damage, but stop the fire as soon as the system acknowledges the signal.

Do you have a unique story about the path that led you to the Air Force? Are you proud of your job and how it impacts the bigger Air Force mission? Do you work in an exceptional unit? If so, the Air Force wants to hear from you!

The 2014 American Airman Video Contest, which began July 1, is open to all Airmen -- uniformed, civilian, Guard and Reserve -- who want to share their story of being an Airman.
