A look inside the enlisted professional military education is the topic of the latest “Developing Mach-21 Airmen,” Air Education and Training Command’s professional development podcast series, released July 19.

On the pod, Senior Airman Francisco Melendez from the Air University public affairs office sits down with Tech. Sgt. Joshua Steward and Senior Master Sgt.
