GOODFELLOW AIR FORCE BASE, Texas --
Congratulations to the Airmen of Class 17-E, who graduated from Airman Leadership School Aug. 3.
ALS is a six-week course designed to prepare senior airmen to assume supervisory duties by offering instruction in the practice of leadership, followership, written and oral communicative skills, and the profession of arms. Students gain an understanding of their role as military supervisors and how they can contribute to the overall goals and mission of the Air Force. Senior airmen must complete ALS to assume the rank of staff sergeant.
