MCGHEE TYSON AIR NATIONAL GAURD BASE, Tenn. -- A team of instructors from the I.G. Brown Training and Education Center's Paul H. Lankford Enlisted PME Center here recently traveled to the Gulfport Combat Readiness Training Center in Mississippi to conduct the second phase of satellite Airman leadership school.

"We're down here in Gulfport to increase the throughput ... to get 56 additional students through Airman leadership school," said Master Sgt. Elizabeth Ruiz, superintendent of satellite EPME.

Officials said they chose the CRTC as a testing site for a mobile satellite training team to complete EPME for the backlog of Airmen needing ALS in the Air National Guard.
