AFSA 615 Presents Barksdale ALS with a Piece of History

AFSA Chapter 615 President TSgt Smith presents a signed shirt to Barksdale Airman Leadership School Commandant MSgt Woods on September 20th, 2016.

This morning I was given the opportunity to present a framed and signed shirt from none other then the 9th CMSAF Jim Binnicker. Chief Binnicker served the men and women of the  Air Force in 1957 until 1990. He served as our 9th CMSAF from 1986-1990. He was credited with transitioning from the APR to the EPR system as well as developing the feedback form to enhance communication between a rater and ratee. After his retirement he served as the CEO of the Enlisted Village in Shalimar FL from 2000-2015. Your chapter 615 knows this memorabilia is proudly displayed in the right place at the Barksdale Airmen Leadership School. Thank you to the commandant MSgt Woods, presenting along with me VP (r)CMSgt Forman and awards trustee SMSgt Kasch. As well as every AFSA Chapter 615 member who make our work possible. Your chapter purchased this at your 2016 international convention through funds raised at our weekly bingo sessions. Together we are AFSA!


Christopher "Dex" Smith, TSgt, USAF
President, AFSA Chapter 615
