Amn Moses Alexander graduated Basic Military Training and Security Forces Technical School in 2016. During his time in the Air Force, Amn Moses has scored a 92 on his initial DPE and set the bar for his peers. He has assisted with many volunteer opportunities in the local community and within his assigned wing. He was hand selected for two notable TCPs. One being for former CMSAF #17 and the other in response for an F-16 crash. In March of this year, Amn Alexander was providing security at the front gate of his assigned installation. He encountered multiple incidents where he was confronted by individuals not having the proper access information to enter the base. He acted swiftly with unfettered integrity and devotion to duty while remaining calm displaying the highest military bearing. This is something that many of our defenders do every day. He represents the thousands of warriors that protect our Air Force families. Amn Alexander was recently coined by his squadron CC for excellence. Since the day that he joined he has set his sight on serving 20 years in our Air Force. He is following in the footsteps of his aunt and uncle who have been successful in guiding him to where he is today. Amn Alexander, “thanks for serving!”

Civilian Developmental Education (CDE) Nomination Handbook
The development and leadership programs offered through CDE prepare future leaders with the skills to meet both corporate Air Force and functional leadership requirements. This is accomplished by selecting the right person at the right time for the right training and putting that training to work in an appropriate follow-on assignment. We must encourage civilians to continue in self-development as the Air Force works to increase the leadership potential of our most important resource—our people.
The tools below are designed to help senior leaders recognize civilian Airmen accomplishments with an official ceremony. These ceremonies provide fellow Airmen the opportunity to see the important roles civilians accomplish to meet Air Force mission requirements. These events provide the civilian Airman the opportunity to identify themselves as an Airman first. These tools are not intended to be all inclusive, nor replace regulatory guidance, but provide most frequently used recognition information.
