Airman magazine interview with Chief Master Sergeant of the Air Force JoAnne Bass covering her accomplishments, priorities and the need to increase the capabilities and resilience of Airmen for a potential future fight with peer adversaries.


“While the Spectrum of Resilience is a great program, what we know is programs do not save lives; people save lives,” Chief Master Sgt. of the Air Force JoAnne S. Bass emphasized. “It’s really important that we create a culture and an atmosphere of connectedness; of purpose. It’s that culture that, perhaps, is something somebody will need when they’re having some of their worst days. They’ll know they can call on their brother or sister that’s right next to them.”
