JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIO-LACKLAND, Texas – The 37th Training Wing is standing up its A-staff, in response to a command-wide implementation this year. The 37th TRW is one of three wings within Air Education and Training Command to undergo the transition that aims to streamline coordination and empowers units to focus on mission execution. 

The reorganization is expected to be a seamless transition that will join vital capabilities across the wing and delineate clear lines of communication that emphasize planning, integration and coordination ahead of a crisis. 

“Implementing this new organizational alignment will enable the Warhawk Wing to thrive,” said Col. Lauren Courchaine, 37th Training Wing commander, “When there is alignment, all aspects of the Wing including the mission, values, strategies, policies, processes and people are integrated and coordinated, leading to unprecedented success.” 

The new operational framework enhances decision-making processes and ensures decisions are communicated to higher and lateral headquarters. The streamlined reorganization assures better communication that extends to joint partners who currently operate with similar staff structures. 

The A-staff implementation was effective as of July 21.
