The BMT Capstone transition week is expected to allow Airmen to more deeply reflect on character values, principles and behaviors expected of all Airmen, as learned earlier in BMT. Specifically, this capstone period must motivate and challenge Airmen to compare their own personal character (what “is”) to the character expected of all Airmen (what “ought” to be); to identify gaps; to learn to apply strategies to close the gaps; and to become highly motivated to adopt such strategies as a part of a life-long practice to continually improve in their personal and professional lives as Airmen. By doing this, Airmen will better prepare themselves to face increased freedoms during technical training and beyond, along with the increased challenges that go along with such freedom. They will learn to take greater responsibility for their personal behavior by understanding their true goals in life as Airmen; gain deeper respect for and skills in working with and caring for all fellow Airmen, regardless of differences; and learn practices to promote their own personal and professional growth as resilient Airmen. The capstone week should strengthen the respect and dignity Airmen have in themselves and for others, increase their respect for the diversity we have in the Air Force, and reinforce their commitment to our Air Force core values.
