Squadron commanders play key role in building alliances through LEAP
First Lt. Lorrayne Kealty, 14th Air Support Operations Squadron, Pope Army Airfield, N.C., speaks with Central and South American air force leaders at the Conference of American Air Chiefs in Panama in June 2019. As a Language Enabled Airman Program scholar, Kealty presented at the conference at the encouragement of Lt. Col. Christopher Sweeny, her squadron commander. Conference attendees were pleasantly surprised by Kealty’s mastery of their native language, choosing to listen to her in person instead of relying on interpreters speaking through their earpieces.
