The Evolution of Airmen: Conversations with the Chief Master Sergeants of the Air Force
Fifty years ago, our Air Force made a significant step forward. Our senior leaders recognized the need for an enlisted voice on the headquarters staff and, after a significant vetting and interview process, selected Chief Master Sergeant Paul Airey to become the first Chief Master Sergeant of the Air Force, 3 April 1967. In the 50 years since, 17 Airmen have worn the chevrons, championed enlisted development and retired knowing the enlisted force had moved forward. This book is more than a recognition of our past Chief Master Sergeants of the Air Force. It’s a celebration of enlisted Airmen and an acknowledgement of their considerable evolution. It’s a story about our 70 years as a separate service, told through the lens of Airmen who have served every step of the way. As we celebrate our 70th year as a separate service, let us look to the past and reflect on the barriers we’ve broken to become the world’s greatest Air Force.
