A major change in body and mind is coming to the way Basic Military Training transitions civilians into Mach-21 Airmen. The changes, which start Sept. 4 and will increase the time trainees spend at BMT from 7.5 to 8.5 weeks, are being made in an effort to better develop the next generation of Airmen with an increased focus on and by modeling four lines of effort including readiness and lethality, airmanship, fitness and a warrior ethos.
