GOODFELLOW AIR FORCE BASE, Texas --
During the 2021 E-7 promotion cycle, 4,676 of 24,721 eligible personnel were selected to join the highest tier of the enlisted force. Goodfellow celebrated the successful 18.91 percent of applicants on May 20, at the Event Center.
 
Promotion to master sergeant marks an Airman's first step into assuming a senior noncommissioned officer's duties. The United States Air Force enlisted force structure clearly outlines the 13 core duties of SNCOs. These expectations hold SNCOs accountable for ensuring mission requirements are met while inspiring Airmen to embrace a culture of leadership, professionalism, and responsibility. 
 
Master sergeants are transitioning from working as technical experts and frontline supervisors into a dedicated administration role while growing their technical and managerial talents. Master sergeants often serve not only as leaders but as mentors to junior Airmen and noncommissioned officers, sharing the lessons they've learned throughout their careers.
 
Congratulations to the 17th Training Wing selectees for becoming the next master sergeants of the Air Force!
