JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIO-RANDOLPH, Texas (AFNS) -- Development teams from airfield operations, support, materiel leader and health professions functional communities selected more than 800 officers as candidates for squadron command in 2018.  

Projected command vacancies also include training, recruiting, 365-day extended deployment and Test Pilot School (Test Eagle) command opportunities. The development teams reviewed all aspects of the candidates’ records, duty histories, demonstrated leadership potential, professional development and appropriate timing to identify those officers most qualified for command.
 
“This is a highly competitive selection process as squadrons are the most essential level of command,” said Sophia Barnard, Air Force Personnel Center special duty assignments branch. “Selected candidates have demonstrated traits essential for leading and developing Airmen while ensuring generation and sustainment of readiness.” 
 
Wing commanders will use the candidate list to select candidates for their projected 2018 squadron commander vacancies, with those selection results planned for a December release.
 
Candidates will remain on the list, if not selected for command, until the list is superseded by the following year’s results, unless they are removed for one of a variety of reasons, such as selection for another assignment opportunity.
 
“Not all officers on the candidate lists will get command assignments,” Barnard said. “The development teams typically select more qualified officers than there are projected vacancies to account for any unexpected events during the year.”

Candidate lists have posted to myPers. To view the list, select “Active Duty Officer” from the dropdown menu and search “Consolidated Squadron.”
