Sheppard’s Peer-to-Peer Airman Mentoring Program, aimed at developing student Airmen into future leaders, was featured as a “Best Practice” during the Air Force Community Action Information Board January 24, 2017. As its name implies, the program fosters a culture of positive influence driven and regulated by Airmen, with only oversight and occasional direction from the program managers. Peer-to-Peer developed from the ground up at Sheppard, focuses on developing professionalism, dignity, respect and aspects of emotional intelligence, according to Tommy Bonner, the Peer-to-Peer program manager. “We wanted to find a way to change the culture and thought processes of Airmen,” he said.

Have you served between two and ten years as an active duty Air Force officer? Are you interested in attending law school and becoming a judge advocate (JAG)? The Funded Legal Education Program (FLEP) or Excess Leave Program (ELP) may be just for you! Officers interested in continuing to serve the Air Force as a JAG are invited to apply for either of these highly competitive programs.  Officers selected for FLEP have the opportunity to attend law school at Air Force expense while also continuing to receive full pay, allowances, and tuition.  Officers chosen for ELP are responsible for their own law school expenses and do not receive full pay, allowances, and tuition.  However, ELP participants remain eligible for active duty benefits and continue to accrue time towards retirement and promotion. (U.S. Air Force graphic/2nd Lt. Brittany Curry)

Imagine a work day without electricity; not being able to send emails or use radars; living in a tent with no heat or air conditioning. Luckily, this isn’t a reality for most bases, thanks largely to the Airmen--trained at Sheppard AFB--who maintain the electrical systems. At forward-deployed locations such as Al Asad Air Base, it’s a bit more complicated since they rely on generators to produce most of their power.

He told the Airmen of new technologies, strategies and equipment. He told them they would win the war and help guide the future though their training and professionalism.

Default Air Force Logo Resilience: More than just a buzzword
For Erich Lofton, it came after responding to a head-on collision as a volunteer firefighter. “It was pretty routine at first. We put the fire out and started putting the gear away. Then the chief came over and asked for volunteers to pull the body out of the car,” he said, as the memory showed in his expression. We had to peel off the door so I could climb in and get to her… “It took me months to deal with that,” Lofton said. That was the day “resilience” became something more to him than just another Air Force program or buzzword.
