SCOTT AIR FORCE BASE, Ill. – A group of command senior enlisted leaders visited U.S. Transportation Command here Jan. 17, to broaden their working knowledge of all military services as part of the Keystone course.
The course, offered by the National Defense University, educates command senior enlisted leaders (E-9s) currently serving or slated to serve in a general or flag officer level joint headquarters that could be assigned as a joint task force.
During the course, attendees visit the combatant commands, joint task forces and senior leaders (officer and enlisted) in the Washington, D.C., area to explore the relationships and challenges of operating in a joint environment.
Keystone covers the very special relationship between the command senior enlisted leader of a joint force commander and the enlisted personnel from all the services operating under the commander.
“We received excellent feedback from the Keystone fellows and senior enlisted leaders,” said Chief Master Sgt. Kevin Moon, acting senior enlisted leader for USTRANSCOM. “I believe we accurately conveyed our command's capability.
“More importantly,” Moon added, “by the time the visit ended, they knew who to call when a requirement surfaced - USTRANSCOM.”
Moon thanked the USTRANSCOM members who assisted the large crowd of senior enlisted leaders during their command visit.
“I was extremely proud to be a part of the exceptional team of professionals that represented TRANSCOM today,” Moon said. “From Sgt. 1st Class (Shawn) Grace, coordinating the overall effort as the new executive assistant to the USTRANSCOM SEL, to Protocol officers ensuring proper customs and courtesies and critical logistical details were in the right place at the right time - truly outstanding.”
