AFI 36-2113 The First Sergeant

The Mentor - A Comprehensive Guide to Army Counseling and Leadership

This instruction sets the policy for management of first sergeants and implements AFPD 36-21, Utilization and Classification of Air Force Military Personnel. First Sergeant is an expeditionary leader serving in a time honored special duty position, rich in custom and tradition. The position is critical to the execution of the unit mission. Although the first sergeant does not typically have a specific operational or technical expertise requirement, he or she must thoroughly understand how decisions affect unit performance. The first sergeant primarily supports the mission through interaction, support and management of Airmen and families. The first sergeant works directly for and derives authority from the unit commander, and serves a critical link for the commander within the unit. The first sergeant must ensure the force understands the commander’s policies, goals, and objectives and must also ensure support agencies, i.e., security forces, civil engineer, medical facilities, services, etc., are responsive to the needs of unit personnel and their families.
