The Profiles in Leadership showcases Reserve Citizen Airmen who are making a difference in the Air Force and in their communities. These Citizen Airmen are chosen because of their compelling stories of leadership, impact, and contributions in both their military and civilian occupations, and for their potential as future leaders. Each year, we will highlight Air Force Reserve leaders who demonstration service, excellence and integrity as America’s Reserve Citizen Airmen.

ROBINS AIR FORCE BASE, Ga. -- The fourth edition of the Air Force Reserve Profiles in Leadership featuring 16 Reserve Citizen Airmen, went on display in the Pentagon Dec. 14.   

This year’s display includes the first woman F-35 wing commander; a driven senior airman who developed a life-saving class for her native country of Ghana; and a first sergeant and city detective who is building bridges with the Tampa Bay community. In fact, women dominated the selections this year, making up 9 of the 16 Citizen Airmen and civilians in the display.

Profiles in Leadership continues a tradition of honoring Reserve Citizen Airmen and civilians who make significant contributions to their communities and the nation.

Visitors to the Pentagon can view the display on the fifth floor A-ring, between corridors 10 and one. The individual portraits can also be viewed on the web at https://www.afrc.af.mil/About-Us/Profiles-in-Leadership/Volume-IV/
