FROM THE SECURITY FORCES DIRECTORATE
by CMSgt Tamala L. Hartz
I am honored by the opportunity to serve our Defenders as the Career Field Manager. I want to publically thank CMSgt Steve White for his help as I transition into what I am sure will be the most challenging assignment of my career. As always there is much to do and finite resources and time to do it in. This is nothing new and with your assistance I am confident we will continue to be the great career field our predecessors and you have made us. Much of what makes Defenders great occurs at the squadron level and as Brigadier General Tullos has said, this will be the focus of our efforts. My job is to facilitate your success. Please know that my first and last thought will always be of the Defenders on post at every location executing the spectrum of operations. To that end I plan to engage on a number of issues affecting our Defenders.
To discuss just a few examples, initially we will tackle a number of short term goals intended to understand new staff relationships and ensure we are using every available resource to accomplish our missions and improve the personal and professional quality of life of our Defenders. We will also seek to make every effort to put the right people in the right places at the right time from SF Academy graduates to Chief Master Sergeants. We will educate our people on the deliberate development process so that every Defender will know what they must do to achieve the level of personal and professional success they strive for.
In the long term you can look forward to an intense focus on training our Defenders smartly. We will eliminate redundancies and inefficiencies, put training in the hands of our leaders at the squadron and flight level to the greatest extent possible, and improve training for Senior NCOs preparing to assume Superintendent and SFM positions. These issues and many more will be pursued and accomplished in accordance with the Security Forces Flight Plan and will always be aligned with General Tullos’ focus on squadrons.
I look forward to meeting and working with you and I encourage your feedback whenever you have the opportunity. Please accept my heartfelt thanks for all you do to serve our country and our Air Force, and represent the Security Forces Career Field.
