U.S. Air Force Col. Garret Bilbo, 92nd Air Refueling Wing deputy commander, delivers opening remarks during the First Sergeant Symposium at Fairchild Air Force Base, Washington, Oct. 31, 2023. Bilbo spoke on the importance of first sergeants and the role they play in ensuring unit readiness and keeping good order and discipline. First sergeant symposiums provide information and resources to Airmen and future additional-duty first sergeants about the roles and responsibilities of the position. Air Force first sergeants, also known as “shirts,” advise unit commanders on the readiness, health, morale, welfare, and quality-of-life of Airmen and their families to ensure a mission-ready force. The First Sergeants Council at Fairchild AFB was recently recognized as Air Mobility Command’s First Sergeant Council of the quarter. (U.S. Air Force photo by Airman 1st Class Matthew Arachikavitz)
