Biography


Congratulations on your selection to attend the Officer Training School (OTS). You are about to embark on one of the most challenging and memorable training and education programs of your Air Force career.  Our primary mission at OTS is to educate and train officers of character, who are committed to the Air Force Core Values - equipped to lead and ready to win.  Our instructors are highly motivated, exceptionally talented and extremely dedicated to their obligation to ensure that every student who passes through this program develops the skills necessary to be an outstanding Air Force officer.  When you graduate from OTS you will leave Maxwell Air Force Base equipped with the right tools and the knowledge necessary to be an effective and professional leader in our Air Force.

The OTS instructors are here to guide you through the program, but your successful completion of the course depends ultimately on your complete commitment to your training.  OTS standards and expectations are very high and our training is intentionally rigorous because the Airmen who you will one day lead deserve no less than the finest officers our Air Force has to offer.

I know that you are up to the challenge of OTS. Dedicate yourself now to listen, to learn and ultimately, to lead!  I look forward to returning your salute at the end of this rewarding experience as our newest Air Force officers. 

Good luck and I look forward to serving with you.
