ALS: “Airmen Locating Success”

By Senior Airman Michelle Patten
Air Force Public Affairs Agency

Airman Leadership School can be viewed a few different ways. For some it is just another box to check in order to be able to wear their staff sergeant stripes. Others see ALS as the transition from Airman to non-commissioned officer. Another group of Airmen are just glad to have a break from the daily grind of their regular missions.

Tech. Sgt. Jamie Kienholz, non-commissioned officer in charge at Joint Base San Antonio Airman Leadership School, talks to Airmen from ALS Class 15-3 during the Introduction to Negotiation lecture at Joint Base San Antonio-Lackland, Texas, March 19, 2015. Kienholz has served as NCOIC for the past year and says the change to the developmental special duty process has brought sharp and motivated NCOs to the schoolhouse. (U.S. Air Force photo by Tech.

Eliminating barriers to service

Have you ever experienced a policy or legislative problem in your career?
Have you worked with your chain of command to address it?
Want to fix the process?

Well, here’s your chance!

A View From Below

Continuum of Service (CoS) is designed to assist Airmen in building a lifetime of service to the nation.  To better explain CoS, check out this video–it helps describe exactly what CoS is and how it can help you.

To help Airmen submit issues and concerns, the Air Force developed the CoS Submission and Tracking Tool (CoSTT).  All Airmen can log into the tool (access requires a .mil address and CAC card) to submit an issue, track its progress and view other issues in a variety of categories.

Chief Master Sergeant of the Air Force Rodney McKinley supports CoS saying, “Continuum of Service is a vitally important initiative and seeks to remove barriers to service, enabling us to reach the right Airmen, with the right skills, at the right time.”
