Abstract : This paper emphasizes that entry-level training in the Air Force is a process that goes beyond military and technical skills training. It necessarily involves character development and value reinforcement. While the Air Education and Training Command is geared toward developing the technicians and specialists needed to support the Service's highly sophisticated mission, first and foremost it must produce people who have the personal characteristics to perform well in this environment--the qualities of airmanship. Currently, there is no central focus or overriding entry-level training philosophy that emphasizes the importance of this socialization, yet it is absolutely critical if we are to maintain the quality of the enlisted force in the years to come.
