  • Speaking Air Force-fully

    When I began working for the Air Force Culture and Language Center as a Subject Matter Expert in Culture (aka SME, pronounced like Capt Hook’s clownish pirate boatswain), I recognized that I was immersing myself in a culture that was fairly new to me – that of the United States Air Force. I quickly came to realize that there are many cultural assumptions in the Air Force that I was not aware of. Even now, years later, I am still occasionally caught off guard by a disconnect between my own cultural assumptions, and those of the larger Air Force. That’s when I learn something new about Air Force culture.

Some women have served as vocal activists in many major movements; other women have worked quietly behind the scenes to battle oppression and injustices. This March, the Air Force Culture and Language Center celebrates all of these accomplishments for Women’s History Month. AFCLC pays homage to the wives, mothers, professors, service members, and pioneers who are making the world a better place.

  • LEAP: Improving my language skills at ISOS
