First Sergeants’ Corner

Be professional, don’t drink and drive
Members of the U.S. Air Force must be professionals in every aspect of their lives, both on- and off-duty. So why do Airmen in the KMC still willfully and intentionally drive while impaired by alcohol?

An Air Force professional must always follow our Core Values: “Integrity First, Service Before Self, and Excellence In All We Do.” Without question, driving under the influence of alcohol breaks all three of these core values. 
So why does this criminal activity still take place on a regular basis? If we are to be considered a professional organization, we must follow the rules laid out before us and ensure those around do the same. 

Be a professional; do not drink and drive. No exceptions.
