A First for the Weapons School

The Air Force Weapons School at Nellis AFB, Nev., graduated its first-ever class of joint terminal attack controller advanced instructors, announced school officials. “This is a historic event for enlisted airmen and our nation’s combat power,” states the Dec. 18 release. This inaugural class of the JTAC Advanced Instructor Course had seven airmen in it, including an air liaison officer, combat controllers, and Tactical Air Control Party members. They graduated on Dec. 15 and “are now considered expert instructors for the full spectrum of terminal attack control operations and joint air-ground integration,” states the release.
