    HULMAN FIELD AIR NATIONAL GUARD BASE, Ind. (Nov. 4, 2018) — More than 20 Airmen assigned to the 181st Intelligence Wing engaged in professional development training Nov. 3-4 at Hulman Field Air National Guard Base, Indiana.

    The training involved Airmen of many ranks and sought to help align personal development with organizational health and overall mission success.

    The purpose of the training is to determine how you fit in to what matters to the Air Force, said U.S. Air Force Master Sgt. Rachel, a plans and integration non-commissioned officer-in-charge for the 181st Intelligence Wing. And, at the local level, we think about how what we do as Indiana Guardsmen fits in to the National Guard.

    One way 181st IW Airmen become part of the bigger picture is by completing job responsibilities.

    “No matter how small you think your job may be, it’s still important,” said U.S. Air Force Senior Airman Shelby R. Knight, a health services management specialist assigned to the 181st IW.

    To Airmen, local unit health and morale goes hand in hand with mission success.

    “Our unit is healthy when we take care of our own members,” said U.S. Air Force Airman 1st Class Maridalia Merino, a logistics specialist assigned to the 181st IW. “And here, we take care of each other.”

    That willingness to help fellow Airmen resonates because of a common, core value: service before self.

    “Our base really helps out the community,” said Merino. “We can also bring that focus back home. We all come to base to serve. There are many other things we can be doing, but we’re here to serve because it’s important to all of us.”

    Indeed, Airmen were encouraged to take their personal values to improve the missions of the units assigned to the 181st IW.

    “I want you to consider what you value,” said Rachel. “Can you change the way the Air Force operates? One-hundred percent. Incorporate your own values. You can change yourself, and you can change your workplace.”
