    181st Intelligence Wing

    HULMAN FIELD AIR NATIONAL GUARD BASE, Ind. — Thirty-three Airmen assigned to the 181st Intelligence Wing received Community College of the Air Force associate’s degrees June 10 at Hulman Field Air National Guard Base, Indiana.

    Friends, family, coworkers and military leadership attended the graduation ceremony in support of the CCAF graduates.

    Display your degree with pride, said Senior Master Sgt. John Mehringer, the force development superintendent of the 181st IW. You earned it.

    The vice commander of the 181st IW, who is also a 1997 CCAF graduate, served as keynote speaker for the ceremony.

    Congratulations on accomplishing your goal, said Col. Matthew C. Brown, the vice commander of the 181st IW. It is a great day for us as a wing and for you as individual Airmen.

    CCAF degrees can play an important role for citizen Airmen in both their military and civilian lives.

    The CCAF is the same as any other college or university, said Mehringer. It is fully accredited and partnered with 37 sister colleges and universities. You begin receiving college credits in basic military training, and you continue to earn college credits through technical training school. You can then earn the rest of your credits in the classroom. Also, you can earn credits through the College Level Examination Program offered by the Defense Activity for Non-Traditional Education Support, which is free to military servicemembers.

    Receiving CCAF credits adds up.

    With a CCAF degree, Airmen can earn their bachelor’s degrees faster, said Mehringer. CCAF credits will transfer to civilian colleges and universities. The CCAF is the envy of all the other military services for what it offers to Airmen.

    By receiving their CCAF degrees, the 33 Airmen have furthered their civilian and professional military education. More importantly, they can hold themselves with pride knowing that they exemplify the Air Force core value of Excellence in All We Do.
