AFCLC selects 149 cadets for the Language Enabled Airman Program

MAXWELL AIR FORCE BASE, Ala. --

After a rigorous selection board process, the Air Force Culture and Language Center has selected 149 new cadets for the Language Enabled Airman Program.

Participation in LEAP is voluntary and to become a LEAP scholar, Airmen must demonstrate proficiency in a foreign language specified on the Air Force Strategic Language List, receive endorsement from their unit commander, and compete via a board process.  Selection to LEAP is based on applicants’ existing language proficiency, potential to achieve higher levels of language proficiency, and Air Force language requirements.

AFCLC is proud to announce the following cadets met these requirements and are now members of the career-spanning program:
