When discussing the National Guardsmen citizen-soldier relationship, what are they able to bring from their civilian jobs to their military assignments? Another important aspect of the citizen soldier relationship, which is also true with Air Force Reserve members, is the broad range of talent and experience that traditional Guard members bring from their civilian jobs to their military assignments.
Why do members of the Air Force Reserve consider themselves Citizen Airmen? because in addition to their military duties, they are employed in the private sector in a wide variety of career field; yet they dedicate a considerable portion of their lives to serving as a part of the total force.
What is the secondary purpose of the AEF? The AEF’s secondary purpose is to provide predictability and stability to Airmen.
List some items that are vital to understand about the AEF doctrine. The AEF doctrine is not only vital to understand how to best employ air and space power, but it is also vital to understand the proper way to organize, present, and deploy air and space forces.
