Building a World-Class Noncommissioned Officer Corps.

I enjoyed Chief Master Sergeant of the Air Force Gerald R. Murray's article "Developing Airmen: Building a World-Class Noncommissioned Officer Corps" (winter 2005, http:// apj/apj05/win05/murray.html). Chief Murray mentioned the importance of mentoring, and I have been fortunate enough to have had great mentoring over the years. One thing I discovered early on is that learning the next level of responsibility and leadership needs to start before one gets there. Hopefully I can mentor and inspire the next generation of leaders. As a junior noncommissioned officer (NCO) hoping to reach senior NCO leadership at the strategic level, I appreciate what Air and Space Power Journal does in allowing me to educate myself and my troops. Thanks!

Chief Murray's article contains an excellent figure labeled "development and utilization across a 30-year career." Our unit plans to use it for Enlisted Professional Development purposes and for training our younger troops to give them a guideline on career progression.
