  • First Sergeants: More Than a Position, A Calling That Requires Having a Heart as Strong as a Diamond

    The Air Force first recognized the outcry for a career field that focused on the health and well-being of Airmen and the overall unit by establishing the first sergeant position in 1961. This move was then followed by the Strategic Air Command’s 15th Air Force opening their own first sergeant school in 1967 at March Air Force Base, California. It is vital for units to have first sergeants that have their finger on the pulse of a command. By getting service members at every level the chance to be taken care of fosters an environment of open communication. This transparency allows for both junior enlisted and top leadership to succeed in their mission.
