SAN ANTONIO (AFNS) -- The chief master sergeant of the Air Force has released an "Enlisted Perspective" focusing on Airmen working downrange in the U.S. Central Command area of responsibility.

After visiting during the recent holiday season, Chief Master Sgt. of the Air Force James A. Roy, the Air Force's top enlisted Airman, knows how Airmen are contributing to the mission in nontraditional wartime taskings. 

"An example is the great work Airmen are performing as air advisers in Iraq and Afghanistan," said Chief Roy. "These Airmen train and mentor Iraqi and Afghan forces, helping them build capacity so they'll be able to take over security for their homeland."

Chief Roy said he spoke with Airmen across the AOR and two concerns stand out. One is ensuring that the Air Force is giving the proper amount of training to deploying Airmen, and the other is making sure the Air Force is doing the best job possible reintegrating Airmen to their home stations and families when they return from deployment.

"I assure you, I take these and other concerns seriously and will work with our Air Force senior leaders and the Air Staff to resolve issues," said the chief. "I also highlight these two issues so our commanders, officers in charge, chiefs, first sergeants and supervisors throughout the chain of command can take notice. There are no excuses for improper training or lack of care for our Airmen and families."

The complete perspective can be read on Chief Roy's page.
