Inductees transitioned from technical experts and first-line supervisors of their fields to operational leaders. They are skilled in merging subordinates’ talents, skills, and resources with other teams’ functions to effectively accomplish the mission.

Inductees joined their leadership, fellow SNCOs, and their families for a night of legacy, honor and celebration. 

Chief Master Sgt. Hamp Lee III, the Program Manager for Air Force Handbook 1, Airman, spoke at the event after spending the week with senior enlisted members and selectees during the SNCO Professional Development Seminar. Lee emphasized the importance of advocacy and empathy that senior noncommissioned officers must have to lead junior enlisted Airmen to build the Air Force’s future leaders.
