SAN ANTONIO (AFPN) -- Chief Master Sgt. of the Air Force-select Rodney J. McKinley said his new job brings with it a great responsibility to the service’s enlisted force.

As such, when he assumes his new post as the Air Force’s 15th top enlisted leader July 1, he’s not planning to make immediate changes, he said during an Air Force Report interview at Hickam Air Force Base, Hawaii.

Instead, the current command chief master sergeant for Pacific Air Forces said he will be busy helping Air Force leaders achieve three top priorities.

“Number one: Winning the war on terrorism. Number 2: Taking care of our Airmen. And number 3: Recapitalizing our Air Force,” Chief McKinley said.

For the complete Air Force Report interview, see the "15th CMSAF" video on the Air Force Report section on Air Force Link.
