Mixed NCO leadership school with Women in the Air Force and staff
Noncommissioned Officer Leadership school 71-2L, with 22 Women in the Air Force, or WAFs, and staff in November 1970 at the I.G. Brown Training and Education Center on McGhee Tyson Air National Guard Base in Louisville, Tenn. NCO leadership school was the precursor to today's Air Force Airman leadership school. This class was also reported as the largest single graduation of WAFs in a leadership school to date, and these women were the first to attend classes at the TEC. They graduated Nov. 27, 1970. Women were accepted on an equal basis with men in 1976, and the WAF program ended. (U.S. Air National Guard photo)
