Graduation Information

Graduation not only represents the successful completion of Squadron Officer School but enables those graduating to become better leaders and the future leaders of the Air Force.  Graduation takes place in Polifka and is attended by distinguished guests including Honorary Squadron Commanders as well as family, spouses and children.  Graduation is a time to acknowledge the contributions of groups, individuals, and flights for exceptional work throughout their course. 

Congratulations to the class of 18D and the flight commanders who were vital to the success of the class sharing their expertise and knowledge on each and every lesson!

18D graduated 669 students across 49 flights.   Each flight was composed of thirteen to fourteen Air Force officers and Department of Defense civilians who worked together throughout the course. Although the class was here for six and a half weeks their impact is long lasting.  These students donate much of their time and resources to special programs.  This class donated over 492 hours of community service to different organizations in the local community including the Montgomery Zoo, a widow's group, a women's transitional house, a high school, and an Alabama State Park. In addition, they donated over 6,401 items to the Maxwell AFB Airmen's Attic.  Finally, they generously donated 251 pints of blood to LifeSouth Community Blood Center and registered 96 bone marrow donors to the C.W. Bill Young Department of Defense Marrow Donor Program.

Here is a look at the six and a half weeks of 18D:


Good luck to the Class of 18D as you go forth with new relationships that last a lifetime and welcome to the class of 18E.
