The AFDW Commander's Hotline is fully operational and ready for use.

The rules of engagement are simple. I only ask that you don't make me the first stop for your concern or question. If there is an organization in place that gets paid to solve the problems, please allow them the first crack at it. This will be the first question I ask to ensure you've given the right folks the opportunity to address your concern. If you are still not getting something resolved, I'll be happy to look into it.

This capability is a direct link to me and me only. Nobody else has access to this Hotline. However, please be aware that I might share the info in the email with the appropriate channel - chain of command; Inspector General Hotline; the Department of Defense IG Hotline; Fraud, Waste, and Abuse Hotline; DOD Fraud, Waste, and Abuse Hotline; Congress; Military Equal Opportunity; civilian personnel grievance process; safety; etc. - if I need their input. However, I will respect your privacy to the extent that I am able ...especially if you request to remain anonymous.

I greatly value what you do every day and I hope this provides an additional link to help me help you. Thank you for your hard work and I look forward to your emails.
