JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIO-FORT SAM HOUSTON, Texas —


 

As San Antonio prepares for Fiesta 2020, each military service at Joint Base San Antonio begins its search for a male and female military ambassador. The Air Force Military Ambassador Program will feature two Airmen, one female and one male, to represent the service.

All E-4 to E-7 Air Force members, 21 years old and older and assigned to JBSA, are eligible to apply to become a military ambassador. Nomination packages will be distributed to public affairs offices across JBSA Sept. 1.

“The program plays an essential role in promoting the Air Force global community relations program and promote the military’s commitment with the local communities around South Texas,” said Kathleen Salazar, 502nd Air Base Wing Public Affairs. "The ambassadors are given the opportunity to showcase the professionalism and skills of the Air Force, while fostering a positive rapport in the community."

Nominations are due to the 502nd Air Base Wing Public Affairs Office, at JBSA-Fort Sam Houston by close of business Oct. 4. Nominees must provide a letter of recommendation from their unit commander.

Once nominated, candidates appear before a selection panel of chief master sergeants and former Air Force ambassadors. The selection panel reviews applications, conducts interviews and selects the ambassadors.

An application packet can be submitted to usaf.502.pao@mail.mil or contact the 502nd ABW PA Office, 210-221-0546 for more information.
