9/20/2006 - WASHINGTON (AFPN) -- A recently released publication aims to help Airmen and commanders become better strategic communicators when talking about the Air Force to the public.
The Air Force Story, available now on this site, is a high-level summary of information about the Air Force, with topics ranging from heritage to missions, vision and people.
The publication is meant to help Airmen understand and talk about the Air Force.
"The Air Force Story provides talking points to get you started talking about the Air Force," said Brig. Gen. Erwin F. Lessel III, Air Force director of Communication, "and help you explain to a variety of audiences who you are as an Airman and what America's Air Force does for the nation."
The talking points are bulleted, and divided into many appropriate topics. General Lessel said it is important for Airmen to understand the messages in the publication.
"We are responsible for telling the Air Force Story credibly and accurately," he said. "Our Air Force needs every Airman to be a communicator and tell our story and this document is the right tool to get started. We want to communicate 'one message with many voices.'"
