Academy seeks Reserve Airmen
Through the LEAD program, 85 slots are available to highly-qualified Reserve and Guard Airmen at the Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, Col., via a preparatory school. Every year, many of these slots go unfilled and a great opportunity is wasted. Admissions standards are high, and the academy is demanding of its students, but the rewards are substantial. Selectees receive a full scholarship to one of the nation's best schools and the opportunity to become a commissioned officer. Applications and letters of recommendation are due Dec. 31. The rest of the package, such as high school transcripts and test scores, is due Jan. 31. For more information, visit www.academyadmissions.com, click admission and then Airmen, call (719) 333-2653 or type Air Force LEAD program into a search engine.

Free tutoring for reservists, families
Tutor.com have been made available to Guard and Reserve servicemembers and their dependents. Military families in the Army, Marines, Navy, and Air Force are eligible for free access to the Department of Defense online tutoring program, which allows K-12 and adult students to connect to a live tutor online at anytime for help with their homework, studying, college coursework and more.

NCO Development
A command-sponsored Noncommissioned Leadership Development Course will be held here May 14 - 25. This class is targeted for staff sergeants, but technical sergeants and highly motivated senior airmen will be considered on a space-available basis. Unit funds will not be required for those in military status. Airmen interested in attending should contact their unit training manager. Applications must be submitted to the wing training office by Feb. 14.
