Around the Air Force: CMSAF Talks Promotion Changes / C-17 Humanitarian Mission


HEY THERE EVERYONE, I’M
SENIOR AIRMAN JASMINE VANDERHEYDEN WITH YOUR
LOOK AROUND THE AIR FORCE. CHIEF MASTER SERGEANT
OF THE AIR FORCE KALETH WRIGHT SAT DOWN TO TALK
ABOUT THE DECISION TO ELIMINATE THE WEIGHTED
AIRMAN PROMOTION SYSTEM TESTING FOR PROMOTIONS
TO E-7 THROUGH E-9. “ONE OF THE THINGS WE
REALIZED WITH TESTING IS YOU CAN BE AN AVERAGE TO
BELOW AVERAGE PERFORMER AND TEST YOUR WAY INTO
A PROMOTION THAT YOU PROBABLY DON’T DESERVE. YOU COULD BE AN EXCELLENT
PERFORMER AND TEST YOUR WAY OUT OF A PROMOTION
THAT YOU LIKELY DESERVE AND SO WE WANTED TO
ELIMINATE THAT BIT OF INCONSISTANCY. IN THE PROCESS. AND OH BY THE WAY ONE
OF THE FRINGE BENEIFTS I WOULD SAY IS WE GET
TO GIVE SENIOR NON COMISSIONED OFFICERS
A TON OF TIME BACK. MOST OF US SPEND ANYWHERE
FROM FOUR TO EIGHT MONTHS STUDYING PREPARING REALLY
MEMORIZING THE THINGS FROM THE PFE. NOW YOU CAN USE THAT TIME
TO FOCUS ON FAMILY, YOUR OWN PERSONAL RESILIANCE. TAKING CARE OF YOUR
AIRMEN, YOUR CAT, YOUR DOG WHATEVER THINGS YOU
WANNA DO WITH THAT TIME. YOU CAN HEAR MORE ABOUT
WHAT CHIEF WRIGHT HAS TO SAY ON THIS BY GOING TO
HIS OFFICIAL FACEBOOK PAGE. OVER THE WEEKEND THREE
C-17 GLOBEMASTER THREE AIRCRAFT AND AIRMEN OUT
OF JOINT BASE CHARLESTON, SOUTH CAROLINA FLEW A
COMBINED HUMANITARIAN AND TRAINING MISSION, HELPING
ALMOST ONE HUNDRED THIRTY THOUSAND PEOPLE IN
THREE COUNTRIES. THE MISSIONS WERE PLANNED
TO MAINTAIN THE AIRCREWS FLYING CURRENCY AND
READINESS REQUIREMENTS WHILE DELIVERING CARGOES
OF MEDICAL SUPPLIES, AN SEVERAL TONS OF FOOD TO
OUTREACH ORGANIZATIONS IN HONDURAS, GUATEMALA,
AND HAITI. THESE MISSIONS ALLOW
AIRCREWS TO ACCOMPLISH SEVERAL TRAINING AREAS
INCLUDING RECERTIFICATIONS AND PRACTICING SKILLS
WHILE OPERATING IN INTERNATIONAL
ENVIRONMENTS. THE HUMANITARIAN AID WAS
DONATED BY SEVERAL U-S CHARITIES AND WAS VALUED
AROUND NINETY THOUSAND DOLLARS. AND THAT’S YOUR LOOK
AROUND THE AIR FORCE.

  1. That is great about the humanitarian aid being delivered by the Air Force crews to those countries and the people receiving it should appreciate it.
