SAN ANTONIO (AFNEWS) — In his latest “Enlisted Perspective,” Chief Master Sgt. of the Air Force Rodney J. McKinley discusses the new heritage service dress uniform and how the uniform will better represent the Air Force to the American public.
“I look forward to the day when I stand tall in a new service dress uniform with a stronger military image, one that will make a powerful statement about who we are: America’s Airmen who fly, fight and win in any domain,” Chief McKinley said.
“The proposed heritage jacket will give us a uniform with more historical significance, better functionality, and most importantly, will embody the warrior spirit that defines us as Airmen serving in the profession of arms,” he said.
Chief McKinley, the Air Force’s top enlisted Airman, said the new heritage service dress uniform will say to the world that Airmen are linked to a combat-forged past, and they are warriors prepared for today’s challenges and future battlefields.
