Maxwell Air Force Base, Ala. --
The 908th Airlift Wing’s top priorities are enhancing combat capability and developing our Airmen. One way to help develop Airmen is through the Non-Extended Active Duty Airmen Commissioning Program (formerly the Deserving Airmen Commissioning Program). The wing has identified Traditional Reserve officer positions in AMXS, MXS, ASTS (Nurse), LRS, SFS, OSS (Intel), and the Airlift Squadron (CSO), that can be filled with deserving Airmen.
The wing will conduct a selection board on Saturday, 6 April 2019 for Airmen that would like to apply for a commission. Please note, it is highly unlikely that an enlisted member would become an officer within the same squadron they currently serve in, but would instead serve in another squadron within the 908th.
The application process is thorough; everything from college transcripts to AFOQT scores to EPRs, and much, much more (the checklist to interview is attached) and will have to be turned in to Tech. Sgt. Zachary Bush by Close of Business 29 March 2019.
Make an appointment with Tech. Sgt. Bush to verify basic eligibility requirements or check the myPers website at https://mypers.af.mil/app/answers/detail/a_id/14263/kw/deserving%20airmen/p/18/p/18
Invitations to interview on 6 April will be issued after a complete application package has been received and reviewed.
A professional commissioning interview will be conducted in the Service Dress Uniform with a five member panel consisting of Lt Cols and Cols.
There are plans to have a second board in October, or sooner, if requirements dictate.
