Air Force Recruits in Texas to Get More Training 12/22/13
December 22, 2013
SAN ANTONIO - Air Force recruits at Joint Base San Antonio-Lackland
will get more training on life skills ranging from handling money to protection
against sexual assault.
The San Antonio Express-News reports recruits will spend up to a week after
graduating from basic training to take an expanded skills course.
It's the latest in a series of basic training changes after a sex scandal at
Lackland led to more than two dozen instructors convicted of wrongdoing.
Chief Master Sgt. of the Air Force James Cody said Thursday that the
curriculum is being developed in Washington, D.C. and at the Air Force Air
Education and Training Command in San Antonio. The course, tentatively set for
rollout next year, will also include more information on handling stress and
situations such as suicide.
