Logistics Officer (Current Employee) – Shaw Air Force Base – December 16, 2017
As an Air Force logistics officer, you are a leader and manager from day one. You have to learn quickly and adapt to new situations, discovering and developing your own leadership and communication skills along the way. The Air Force has a phenomenal enlisted force, but the strain of 16+ years of the War on Terror has taken its toll. The people and the equipment are stressed, and retention rates are struggling to keep up even with monetary bonuses. I've enjoyed the continuous learning and development that is required to keep up with Air Force life, as you frequently change jobs and locations, and are presented with new opportunities to excel.
