Air Force Reserve Command's senior enlisted advisors and command chief master sergeants

Citizen Airman/Oct. 08 -- Once referred to as senior airman advisor, by the mid-1970s the Air Force officially adopted the term senior enlisted advisor when describing the top chevron representing the enlisted force at wing, numbered air force and major command headquarters levels. To help identify a chief master sergeant who was filling the position of SEA, a two-line name tag adorned the uniform. This changed in 1998 when SEAs became known as command chief master sergeants, and a new chevron authorized for their wear contained a solid star in the middle of the upper blue field of the designation.

In 1973, Maj. Gen. Homer I. Lewis, chief of the Air Force Reserve and commander, Headquarters Air Force Reserve, selected Chief Master Sgt. Robert I. Boyle to become HQ AFRES's first senior enlisted advisor. In 1997, when HQ AFRES became the Air Force's ninth major air command, Chief Master Sgt. Carol Smits exchanged her chief stripes for the new command chief master sergeant chevron. Since March 2007, Chief Master Sgt. Troy J. McIntosh has served as Air Force Reserve Command's 13th command chief master sergeant. Each SEA/command chief has brought to the position his or her own experiences from the many different specialties they held prior to assuming the post. However, consistent with every one of them has been their insistence on improving the enlisted corps by applying effective leadership techniques and motivating others to greater heights of achievement.
 
The command chief master sergeant advises the commander on matters influencing the health, morale, welfare and effective utilization of more than 58,000 authorized active-duty and Reserve enlisted members within the command and serves as the commander's representative to numerous committees, councils, boards, and military and civilian functions.
