Active-duty staff sergeants through senior master sergeants interested in attaché duty opportunities with international affairs teams around the world must submit their applications by June 15, to be considered.

The Office of the Deputy Under Secretary of the Air Force, International Affairs is accepting applications for enlisted defense attaché specialists at 23 locations, with tour lengths ranging from 12-36 months, said Staff Sgt. Rey Perez Cruz, NCO in charge of joint departmental assignments.

Enlisted attaché support positions include operations coordinator and operations NCO. Duties include managing logistics and administrative support, executing budget requirements, working various clearances, supervising foreign national staff and direct support for distinguished guest visits, Perez Cruz said.

"Attaché personnel represent the secretary and chief of staff of the Air Force to the host nation government officials, and are charged with developing and maintaining harmonious and cooperative relationships between the U.S. Air Force and the host nation air force," Perez Cruz said. "They must be self-starters who are flexible, persuasive and persistent."

Applicants and all immediate family members must be U.S. citizens. In addition, member and all accompanying family members' health, educational and special needs must be medically cleared.

Complete eligibility requirements and application instructions are available on myPers.

Air Force Personnel Center representatives will contact Airmen selected for further screening, and applications from Airmen who are not selected this cycle will be retained through the end of the cycle in the event a primary selectee is unable to fulfill the requirement.
