11/8/2007 - MINOT AIR FORCE BASE, N.D. -- Congratulations to the senior airmen who graduated from Airman Leadership School here Nov. 1.

ALS is six week-long course designed to develop Airmen's leadership and supervisory capabilities.

After ALS, Airmen are better prepared for the increased responsibility as they ascend the rank as they become non-commissioned officers.

Upon graduation, awards are given to the Airmen who were top in their class, including the John L. Levitow award, which is presented to the top professional military education graduate. Levitow is the only Air Force enlisted man to be awarded the Medal of Honor during the Vietnam War.

The top graduate was Brady Rinke, 791st Missile Security Squadron, who won the John L. Levitow award. Charley Young, 5th Munitions Squadron, earned the Flight Chief Leadership award. Christina Day, 5th Maintenance Support Squadron, and Ryan Brown, 91st Maintenance Operations Squadron, earned the Distinguished Graduate award. Day also earned the Academic award.
