WASHINGTON – The Air Force Washington Area Top III (WAT III) organization will host a welcome to the Top III celebration, and membership drive at Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling (JBAB) on June 6.
The event takes place at JBAB’s Slip Inn (adjacent to the Marina) at 2 p.m. to honor those selected for promotion into the Senior Non-Commissioned Officer (SNCO) corps.
WAT III exists to increase the visibility, recognition, and esprit de corps of Airmen assigned to the Pentagon, Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling, and throughout the National Capital Region. As such, we want to welcome all those who will soon join the SNCO corps.
The event will include food and refreshments, along with an informal ceremony to congratulate the newly selected promotees.
The WAT III welcomes all newly selected master sergeants, all current WAT III members and any SNCOs who wish to celebrate the accomplishments of the Air Force’s newly selected promotees to join us.
The WAT III is an organization of exemplary SNCOs making a difference every day for our enlisted corps. Some of our annual events include the Community College of the Air Force graduation ceremony, the SNCO induction ceremony and the junior enlisted holiday social, along with numerous mentoring and professional development opportunities.
To join the WAT III, the annual dues are $20 and the meetings are on the third Thursday of every month, alternating between JBAB and the Pentagon.
Please come out and help us honor our newest members!
Additionally, the WAT III will formally recognize newly minted Air Fore SNCOs at the annual National Capital Region SNCO induction ceremony. This event will take place at the JBAB Club on Aug. 15 at 6 p.m.
