A Senior Airman is promoted from an Airman First class after 36 months time in service and 20 months time as an Airman First Class, or 28 months time as an airman first class, along with a commander's recommendation. A Senior Airman's responsibilities include being proficient in their technical abilities, developing leadership skills, and sometimes supervising an airman of a lesser rank. They must also study at the Airman Leadership School ALS for six weeks; this school is the first part of the Air Force's required professional military education. The Senior Airman's rank insignia is the same as an Airman's and the Airman First Class's, a silver chevron, outlined in blue, with a downwards point that has an encircled star at the center, except that it has three stripes in the chevron. A Senior Airman is most often promoted from Airman First Class A1C , although promotion from lower paygrades may occur with sufficient display of leadership and experience.
I've been talking to someone in the Air Force since April, so about 9 months roughly, but we just started officially "dating" at the beginning of December. The reason we weren't together before was because our feelings were not clear to one another. When we first started hanging out in April, I didn't know he was going into the Air Force, and now I realize what comes along with it. He is now stationed in Korea. I'm a very independent person and am able to do a long-distance relationship.

The Air Force places a high value on professional relationships within its ranks, which are vital to the functional effectiveness of the service. The Air Force work environment differs greatly from what you find in a civilian work environment, with missions involving difficult challenges, hardships, and the potential for injury and even death. Professional relationships encourage communication between members and between members and their superiors.
An airman is a member of an air force or air arm of a nation's armed forces. In certain air forces, it can also refer to a specific enlisted rank. In civilian aviation usage, the term airman is analogous to the term sailor in nautical usage.
