Enlisted commissioning process aided by program CGOs

This post was originally published by Moody Air Force Base - Moody News

August 20, 2013 in Georgia, Moody Air Force Base by clevine

For enlisted Airmen who feel they have leadership potential and want to be challenged a little differently in their Air Force career, becoming an officer through one of the several programs available for enlisted Airmen may be the answer.

Additional support has recently been included in the commissioning briefings held by the Moody Education Center, now held once a week instead of twice a month.

Programs such as the Airman Scholarship and Commissioning Program (ASCP), Professional Officer Course-Early Release Program (POC-ERP), Scholarships for Outstanding Airman (SOAR) and others are now briefed individually with a company grade officer (CGO) who has first-hand experience in that particular program.

The members were pinned behind their vehicles and three of the Soldiers suffered injuries. The unit was under fire and the wounded members needed a casualty evacuation so they ca

This post was originally published by Moody Air Force Base - Moody News

The Allied bombing of Ploesti, Romania, on Aug. 1, 1943, stands as a defining moment in the history of the 93d Bombardment Group and the war effort in the European Theater of Operations.

The critical mission, to cripple the German war machine through the destruction of vital petroleum, would be one of the most dangerous missions of the war in Europe. More than two years into the war in Europe, many generals believed that if no crews returned and the objectives were destroyed, the mission would have been successful.
