The 184th Wing enlisted councils hosted an all call at McConnell Air Force Base on Jan. 5 to emphasize the importance of mentorship and interpersonal relationships.
The three enlisted councils include the Airman’s
Council, Noncommissioned Officer’s Council, and Top 3 Council. Enlisted
councils provide a networking outlet and professional development opportunities
that coincide with the levels of rank and experience.
Research says that around 60 percent of the public use the
beginning of a new year to try to make changes in our life. Unfortunately, only
about 8 percent of those who make a New Year’s resolutions are successful in
One of those positive but rarely successful changes is

My story: Growing up, joining the military was one of the first goals I remember setting when I was 12 years old. In school, I ran long-distance and enjoyed mental/physical challenges. I hoped to enlist after high school. Turned out, life had different plans for me—an ACL reconstruction at 18 years old. A few years later I happened to mention to a friend that I was still interested in serving but was looking for a unit that was organized and competent. He recommended I talk to the 184th recruiting team and I was blown away with that first impression. Out of all the recruiters I had spoken to from every single branch, the 184th was the unit I was looking for.
