1. Welcome to Officer Training School! You will discover that this training is critical to hone and develop your leadership skills, as well as provide you with the necessary tools to be the best Air and Space Force officer you can be. As you pack your bags and head towards Maxwell AFB, we want to encourage you to bring any religious items that may encourage your spiritual resiliency (i.g., faith books/devotionals, religious apparel, Eucharistic Mass kits, rosary, and/or prayer mats). All religious materials must be secured with your personal belongings in order to maintain a pluralistic environment (AFI 1-1, 2.11).
2. Trainees who have facial hair must have a religious or medical waiver. Without either one of these waivers, the trainee will be required to shave, immediately, until a waiver is obtained.
3. Additionally, once you in-process at OTS, all religious accommodation requests must be submitted and approved by your flight instructor. If need be, one of the chaplains can help provide or facilitate your request.
4. If you have any questions, please contact the OTS Chaplain at 334-462-4411.
