JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIO-RANDOLPH, Texas (AFNS) — Active duty staff through senior master sergeants interested in attaché duty could find themselves on an international affairs team in Argentina, Taiwan, Russia and other countries, but those interested must submit their applications by June 16 to be considered, Air Force Personnel Center officials announced today.

The Secretary of the Air Force, International Affairs is accepting applications for enlisted Defense Attaché Specialists at 19 locations, with tour lengths ranging from 12 to 36 months, said Senior Master Sgt.

These enlisted attaché support positions are open to staff through senior master sergeants, and include operations coordinator and operations NCO. Duties include managing logistics and administrative support, executing budget requirements, working various clearances, supervising foreign national staff, and direct support for distinguished guest visits, Geren said.

“Attaché support personnel must be self-starters who are flexible, persuasive and persistent,” Geren said . “This duty is open to Airmen in all Air Force specialty codes, capitalizing on the wide range of professional expertise in the enlisted corps.”

Applicants and all immediate family members must be U.S. citizens. In addition, members’ and all accompanying family members’ health, educational, and special needs must be medically cleared.

“Selection for enlisted attaché duty is very competitive,” he said. “In this role, OPSCOs and OPSNCOs are charged with developing and maintaining harmonious and cooperative relationships between the USAF and the host nation defense department, so only exceptional NCOs will be considered.”

AFPC will notify Airmen selected for further screening, and applications from those who are not selected this cycle will be retained through the end of the cycle in the event a primary selectee is unable to fulfill the requirement.
