“Don’t Just Talk About It, Be About It.” In this episode, I interview MSgt Ron Esposo, a former teammate from the mighty 673d Communications Squadron and co-founder of the Filipino-American Airmen group on Facebook, boasting more than 4,500 worldwide members. We discuss our origin story, the power of a global community through a shared culture that always makes you feel at home, and his personal leadership philosophy using the acronym CYBER that embodies his style and passion for getting the mission done but never forgetting the people are the foundation that makes the mission happen. Let’s go!
