What is our wing image?

Posted by Gary A. Daniel on June 30, 2014 at 2:00pm 0 Comments

What name would best encapsulate that image ?
We have a historic opportunity to name the 124th Fighter Wing. As you know many wings/units have historical names which you may be familiar with - The Wolfpack, The Swamp Foxes, The Gunfighters, The Blacksnakes, The Capital Guardians, etc. The names often originate from a local historical event, a military history theme or geographic tie. It could also tie to our motto " First Class or Not at All". We have read through all of the available IDANG historical documents and haven't found a name widely used for the 124th. Col. McCandless wants to bring the idea of a common identity forward for us all to consider. We have a combat focused team of warriors here at Gowen - is there a name out there that fits ?

Please take a moment and share your idea at our BRIEF SURVEY HERE

Update your Education Records

Per AFI 36-2305, Educational Classification and Coding Procedure, officer and enlisted personnel are responsible for ensuring the accuracy of their education records annually.  It’s a good idea to do this when you log into Virtual MPF to review your personnel record.

 

Officer: Air Force Institute of Technology (AFIT) is responsible for maintaining the academic records for active duty, guard and reserve officers of the USAF.

Mail or e-mail your degree progress or graduation official transcript you’re your university in order to obtain an educational level update.

 

Enlisted: It is the Airman’s responsibility to contact the issuing institution(s) for update and/or correction of military records.  Mail or send electronically your Transcripts/documentation from the issuing institution directly to the Base Education and Training Section (ETS). 

 

FULL details and points of contact are HERE.EDUCATION LEVELS UPDATE.doc

What's for lunch?
