Squadron commanders: keys to building alliances through LEAP
1st Lt. Lorrayne Kealty, 14th Air Support Operations Squadron, Pope Army Air Field, N.C., speaks with Central and South American air force leaders at the Conference of American Air Chiefs in Panama in June 2019. As a Language Enabled Airman Program scholar, Kealty presented at the conference at the encouragement of her squadron commander, Lt. Col. Christopher Sweeny. Conference attendees were pleasantly surprised by Kealty’s mastery of their native language, choosing to listen to her in person instead of relying on interpreters speaking through their earpieces.
