JBSA-FORT SAM HOUSTON — Air Force military ambassador program accepting applications.

Two articulate, self-confident Air Force, Air Force Reserve or Air National Guard members are needed to serve as military ambassadors at community events to represent Joint Base San Antonio in 2015.

One male and one female ambassador are chosen each year to represent the Air Force at many community events and promote the military's commitment and relationship with the local communities around South Texas.

"The program strengthens Joint Base San Antonio's relationship with the local community while educating the public about the Air Force," said Bill Gaines, 502nd Air Base Wing Public Affairs at JBSA-Fort Sam Houston civic outreach chief. "The ambassadors are given the opportunity to showcase the professionalism and skills of the Air Force while fostering a positive rapport in the community."

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

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.

Nomination deadline is Oct. 15. For more information, call 808-0002.
