To become an officer in the U.S. Air Force, an individual must display strong moral character, high academic strength, and be devoted to an honorable conduct with a persistent exemplification of integrity, service, and excellence in all that they do.
Individuals who seek to transition into this increased responsibility from enlisted service face the additional challenge of maintaining an outstanding career with which to compete against the large pool of applicants.
To be selected and successfully become an officer is not only an honor, it is a reflection of one’s accomplishments and leadership potential. For Capt. Kristi Machado, 56th Force Support Squadron sustainment services flight commander, selection came naturally.
