Before the oath
U.S. Air Force Brig. Gen. Jonathan Ellis, mobilization assistant to the 8th Air Force commander, addresses a group of future Airmen right before they take their oath of enlistment at the MEPS in Shreveport, Louisiana, Feb. 27, 2018. Commonly referred to as “shippers”, once the oath is taken, the new recruits are almost immediately shipped out to basic military training in San Antonio, Texas to begin their journey into the Air Force.
