WHAT IS AN AIRMAN?  Air Force Doctrine Document 1-1 defines "airman" as "any US Air Force member (officer or enlisted, active, reserve, or guard, along with Department of the Air Force civilians) who supports and defends the US Constitution and serves our country. Air Force Airmen are those people who formally belong to the US Air Force and employ or support some aspect of the US Air Force's air and space power capabilities. An Airman is any person who understands and appreciates the full range of air and space power capabilities and can employ or support some aspect of air and space power capabilities."

Let's give Sgt. Rene’ Rivera from the Keesler Marine Detachment a shout-out for being chosen as Warrior of the Week during this week's staff meeting! Rivera was recognized for exemplary performance of his duties and level of professionalism while serving as a formal schools instructor for the calibration technician course. He provides instruction to more than 30 entry-level Marines a year on basic electronics and troubleshooting skills for test, measurement and diagnostic equipment all while providing mentorship throughout the course. He recently coordinated the establishment of a Knowledge Resource Center filled with over 10 network computers in the student barracks to help lower student attrition rate. Rivera serves as the Keesler Marine Detachment Color Sergeant managing the Color Guard for all formal ceremonies and was also recently selected as the MARDET Non-Commissioned Officer of the Quarter.
We are starting a video series about #resilience that we will be posting throughout fall and winter where people from Keesler will be sharing their stories of overcoming their personal obstacles. #YoureNotAlone.
