   ages to the Military Personnel Flight (MPF) Career Enhancement Element (DPMSC) by the estab-

       1.4.12. Losing Commander’s recommendation. Individuals may also include additional letters of

       petence, education, AFOQT scores, military bearing and appearance, and verbal communication
       skills are considered.
       1.6.3. Each individual being considered appears before the selection board for a formal interview

       The board will interview the candidate(s) to receive insight into the total person concept.
       1.6.4. Each candidate’s score factors are based on the whole person concept. Board members
       must evaluate the package and interview session to decide the individual’s relative potential. The
       board members evaluations are then converted to a numerical score between 1 and 10 in whole
       numbers. (Attachment 9)
       1.6.5. The selection board will generate a list of candidate eligible for commission within a year’s
       time frame. Once a valid vacancy is established for the 403 WG, the list will be supplied to select-
       ing officials.

Applicant meets all the prerequisite qualifications. Applicant has been thoroughly counseled that gaining

tionally, effective on class start date, a selective reenlistment bonus recipient’s future installments is ter-
minated. The suspension is lifted if the airman is not commissioned. If reenlistment occurs more than 3
months prior to current ETS, selectees are not entitled to sell leave.

                             STATEMENT OF UNDERSTANDING
In submitting an application to become a commissioned officer in the Air Force Reserve, I under-
stand that should I be selected and commissioned, securing a reservist Officer position is my
responsibility. Furthermore, in accordance with AFRCI 36-114, Procedures on Air Reserve Tech-
nicians (ART) who Lose Active Membership in the Reserve, 14 Feb 97, para 3.3.9., I understand
that becoming a commissioned officer will result in loss of active membership in the Reserve as an
Enlisted ART for reasons considered to be within my control and that upon receiving commission,
I face immediate removal from my ART position. I fully understand that there are no entitlements
or priorities for consideration of placement into an ART Officer position or non-ART civilian posi-
tion due to loss of active enlisted membership in the Reserve resulting from my commission as an
Air Force Reserve Officer.




Indorsement:


I understand and accept the aforementioned conditions.
