12/4/2012 - JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIO-RANDOLPH, Texas (AFNS) -- Six Air Force company grade officers have been selected for the Chief of Staff's prestigious PhD program, Air Force Personnel Center officials said Nov. 4.
Three captains have been named primary selectees and are expected to begin their education program this fall, said Master Sgt. Teresa Dixon, Officer Developmental Education superintendent.
"Three alternates -- two captains and a captain-select -- have also been identified in case the primaries are unable to attend," she explained.
Capt. Paul Latour, Air Force Space Command
Capt. Craig Neuman, Air Force Special Operations Command
Capt. Paul Tisa, Air Mobility Command
Capt. Joseph Brown, U.S. Air Force Academy
Capt. Levi Thomas, Air Force Research Laboratory
1st Lt. Erik Lin-Greenberg, Air Force Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance Agency
Selections were based on academic experience and job performance, said Dixon.
"The program exists to identify promising officers early in their careers and begin the development that will help them become strong Air Force and joint leaders capable of broad strategic and critical thinking and decision-making," said Dixon.
