Senior enlisted Airman sends typo-riddled letter demanding ‘flawless’ paperwork


A senior enlisted man of the US Air Force recently issued a memo demanding proofreading prior to submitting official documents- and the memo was filled with typos.

The letter, which was posted to the now infamous Air Force amn/nco/snco page on Facebook, shows the importance of practicing what you preach.

“MEMORANDUM FOR 379 ESFS NON-COMISIONED OFFICERS,” the document began, misspelling “non-commissioned.”

“The role of an NCO is one of considerable responsibility and a special position of trust within the squadron’s chain of command,” the memo read. “An NCO often represents our Wing Commander during emergency responses as well as daily in-garrison operations. This role and position is especially true while deployed or overseeing a geographically separated unit.”

It is unknown who exactly sent the memo- all that is known is that he or she is a senior master sergeant in the 379th Expeditionary Security Forces Squadron at Al Udeid Air Base, Qatar.

“Airmen only know what they see occur on flight, peer input, and technical training,” the senior master sergeant wrote. “An Airmen [sic] who is not competent or excellent at their corresponding level of knowledge of their post … is a direct reflection of their chain of command.”

Paperwork has been an issue in the USAF, to include mistakenly issuing six months of transitional medical benefits to 4,200 airmen leaving the service in 2014.
