This eighth edition of Airman's Guide includes a wide range of information about current policies and procedures that relate to pursuing a successful career in the U.S.
Air Force. It has been prepared for new airmen, airmen-to-be, career airmen, and family members - all of whom will find it a convenient way to stay abreast of formal policy changes and other matters. Airman's Guide was written with two primary purposes in mind: to serve as a convenient personal reference, since most airmen don't have access to a"five-foot shelf" of all the pertinent directives and information that directly affect their careers and their families; to present in one volume some of the most important Air Force programs and to discuss them in everyday terms.
The guide also includes sources of further information. Whether you are a young airman who just recently entered the USAF, a career-minded noncommissioned officer, or a family member, this book is for you.
