KEESLER AIR FORCE BASE, Miss. --

“Start Your Adventure” is the Air Force Reserve Command Recruiting Service’s slogan to draw in potential new Airmen. But if someone is already a part of the Air Force Reserve, they can share their adventure through the Get 1 Now program.

 

The 403rd Wing Recruiting Office has been diligent in spreading the word about the Get 1 Now program. So diligent, in fact, that they won the AFRCRS’s Share Your Adventure Award for having 10 accessions through the Get 1 Now program, the most in Air Force Reserve Command. The award was presented by Lt. Gen. Maryanne Miller, AFRC commander, and Chief Master Sgt. Ericka E. Kelly, AFRC command chief, Oct. 27 during the AFRCRS Deployment Readiness Training at the Doubletree by Hilton hotel in Orlando, Florida.

 

Senior Master Sgt. Dominique Hogan, 403rd Wing recruiting flight chief, said that one benefit of the Get 1 Now program is that the encouragement to join the Air Force Reserve is coming from someone who can share their direct experiences because they’re already serving.

 

“It comes from the heart when it comes from a reservist,” Hogan said.

 

She also added that when the information and encouragement come solely from a recruiter, there can sometimes be a perception that the recruiter is “selling” the Air Force Reserve. With the Get 1 Now program, it’s just two people discussing potential opportunities.

 

“It also gives Air Force Reserve members an opportunity to give back and share the good experiences that they’ve had,” said Master Sgt. Tavores Royster, 403rd Wing recruiter. “It also helps us recruiters because reservists generally know what it takes to join, and they don’t send us people that they know aren’t qualified.”

 

How the Get 1 Now program works is that if a reservist meets someone who is interested in joining the Air Force Reserve, they can enter their name and contact information at http://get1now.us or download the Get 1 Now app on their smartphone. Once the information has been submitted, the potential recruit can be prequalified and contacted by an e-recruiter, then the information is passed to a recruiter in the local area.

 

Master Sgt. Paul Martin, who has used the Get 1 Now program to help several people join the Air Force Reserve, said, “The main reason is because that is the simplest and fastest way to get a recruiter to see them, because all their information is there and it’s tracked.”

 

“If we can get all reservists on board with Get 1, it’ll allow us recruiters to fill these critical positions,” Hogan said. “Just like every Airman is a wingman, every Airman is also a recruiter.”

 

There are dozens of open positions at the 403rd Wing, particularly in the aeromedical evacuation and maintenance career fields. Those interested in starting their adventure with the 403rd Wing and Air Force Reserve can visit http://www.403wg.afrc.af.mil/About/Recruiting.aspx for more information.
