Graduation not only represents the successful completion of Squadron Officer School but enables those graduating to become better leaders and the future leaders of the Air Force. Graduation takes place in Polifka and is attended by distinguished guests including Honorary Squadron Commanders as well as family, spouses and children. Graduation is a time to acknowledge the contributions of groups, individuals, and flights for exceptional work throughout their course.
Congratulations to the class of 19B and the flight commanders who were vital to the success of the class sharing their expertise and knowledge on each and every lesson!
19B graduated 607 students across 44 flights. Each flight was composed of thirteen to fourteen Air Force officers, Department of Defense civilians, and International Officers who worked together throughout the course. Although the class was here for six and a half weeks their impact is long lasting. These students donated much of their time and resources to special programs. 19B donated over 114 hours of community service to the Montgomery Zoo, a local animal rescue, and a local church. This class donated over $550 for Hurricane Michael relief and 150 pounds to the Montgomery Food Bank. Finally, 19B donated 102 units of blood to the Armed Services Blood Program and to the American Red Cross.
Here is a look at the six and a half weeks of 19B:
Good luck to the Class of 19B as you go forth with new relationships that last a lifetime and welcome to the class of 19C.
