    The 691st Cyber Operations Squadron graduated 10 Airmen from the two-day Airmanship 101 professional development seminar March 13, 2021 at Ramstein Air Force Base, Germany.

    Hellhound Airmanship 101 was developed to provide E-4 and below Airmen and Guardians with a practical professional development seminar.
    “This two-day PDS touched on seventeen relevant briefing topics that ranged from squadron history to handling toxic leadership,” said Chief Master Sgt. Chet Tonge, 691 COS.

    “With the exception of financial management, all of the sessions were designed and briefed by Hellhound non-commissioned officers and senior non-commissioned officers.”

    The intent was two-fold; to provide relevant content to the junior enlisted attendees and give our NCOs/SNCOs some experience with organizing and facilitating a large PDS, Tonge added.

    Graduates from the course included: Airman 1st Class Taeyah Brown, Airman 1st Class Bradley Carter, Airman 1st Class Andrew Dates, Airman 1st Class Jeffrey Goetz, Airman 1st Class Dylan Hammel, Airman 1st Class Kareem Henley, Senior Airman Matos-Cruz, Senior Airman Zachary Wheaton, Airman 1st Class Andrew Wheeler and Senior Airman Dana Wolfe.

    “The seminar helped me understand more what it means to be a better Airman and help prepare myself and others for the future,” said Airman 1st Class Andrew Dates.

    Another Airman who attended shared the same sentiment.
    “The 691st Airman PDS was a wealth of knowledge and very well structured,” said Senior Airman Dana Wolfe.

    “The lecturers were engaging and knowledgeable. Not to mention interacting and networking with my fellow Airmen is always a bonus. I recommend this PDS to all Airmen, new and seasoned. There is always something to take away from each topic.”

    The Airmanship 101 was the first installment of its kind for the 691st COS’s professional development seminars.

    “The feedback from the attendees was phenomenal so we’re going to do at least one of these seminars per quarter going forward,” said Tonge.
