A new series of videos is showcasing Michigan Citizen-Airmen performing their duties at Selfridge Air National Guard Base.

The videos, each about a minute long, highlight a single Airmen and profiles what he or she does as a member of the Michigan Air National Guard. All members of the Air Force are assigned to an Air Force Specialty Code, known as an AFSC, which identifies their particular career field. As an example, the videographers who created the videos are assigned to the 3N0X2 AFSC and are trained to create, edit and distribute videos to promote the Air Force, to document specific missions and to assist in the creation of an historical record through the use of video.

So far, five videos have been released by the 127th Wing, the host unit at Selfridge, highlighting Airmen who work in logistics and supply, dental readiness, aerospace ground equipment, metallurgy and as a crew chief.

"The best explanation of what happens at the 127th Wing comes directly from our Airmen," said Capt. Penny Carroll, the 127th Wing public affairs officer. "These videos will not only help to explain to our friends and neighbors some of what we do here at Selfridge, but may also spark an interest in a possible military career with the Michigan Air National Guard."

About two-three of the videos are expected to be produced and distributed on a monthly basis.
