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 19F and the flight commanders who were vital to the success of the class sharing their expertise and knowledge on each and every lesson!
19F graduated 617 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. These 33 International Officers represented the nations of Azerbaijan, Benin, Burkina Faso, Chile, Colombia, Côte d'Ivoire, Croatia, Czech Republic, Egypt, Ethiopia, Gabon, Indonesia, South Korea, Lebanon, Madagascar, Saudi Arabia, Serbia, and Suriname. Although the class was here for six and a half weeks their impact is long lasting. These students donated over 218 hours of community services to the following charities and organizations: The Montgomery Humane Society, the Montgomery and Lee County Food Banks, Halcyon Elementary School, and visited a World War II veteran and gave birthday cards. Finally, 19F donated over 175 units of blood to LifeSouth Community Blood Center.
Here is a look at the six and a half weeks of 19F:
Good luck to the Class of 19F as you go forth with new relationships that last a lifetime and welcome to the class of 19G.
