PLEASE NOTE: Per the 2020 SECDEF Memo, dated 14 Jul 2020, “Immediate Actions to Address Diversity, Inclusion and Equal Opportunity in the military services,” photo requirements for promotion selection boards and selection processes pertaining to assignment, training, education, and command is prohibited. This includes any consideration for Developmental Special Duty such as First Sergeant, Instructor, Recruiter, etc. A photo requirement, as a mandatory document, in an application for retraining into any AFSC, consideration for any assignment, or educational opportunity are not in compliance with the SecDef memo.

Award winners and award programs such as First Sergeant of the Year, 12 Outstanding Airmen of the Year, etc., do not fall into the category above. These photos are not used to select winners, the 1206s are, but are used to highlight winners at the different competition levels.
