YOUNGSTOWN AIR RESERVE STATION, Ohio --

The 910th Airlift Wing hosted a Non-Commissioned Officer Leadership Development course, Sept. 17-21 at Youngstown Air Reserve Station.

The NCOLDC students consisted of Airmen, Marines and a Sailor stationed at YARS.

The course focused on Non-Commissioned Officer core competencies such as employment of military capabilities, individual readiness, organization and resource management, strategic thinking, leadership, effective communication and embodying enlisted culture.

“It’s only a week. It's only five days, but it’s still an important milestone, and now we have to build on that,” said Chief Master Sgt. Bob Potts, the 910th Airlift Wing command chief while addressing the graduates. “We have to continually look for other opportunities to be in that growth mindset. Continue to look for ways to improve the unit, improve yourself, to be the best version of yourself every day.”

Training from Air Force Reserve military facilitators provided the students with tools to be the tactical leaders needed to successfully accomplish the United States military missions.
