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 19E and the flight commanders who were vital to the success of the class sharing their expertise and knowledge on each and every lesson!
19E graduated 691 students across 50 flights. Each flight was composed of thirteen to fourteen Air Force officers and Department of Defense civilians 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. 19E donated for the Legacy Flight Academy Eyes Above the Horizon Event 105 youth served, 10+ hours volunteered, and 60 volunteers; for the Legacy Flight Academy 5k Fundraiser 120 runners raising over $2500; and overall 10,500 items donated to Airman's Attic, over $7040, and over 320 hours volunteered. . Finally, 19E donated over 314 units of blood to the Armed Services Blood Program and The American Red Cross.
Here is a look at the six and a half weeks of 19E:
Good luck to the Class of 19E as you go forth with new relationships that last a lifetime and welcome to the class of 19F.
