Pol-Mil Affairs Strategist

Most officers are selected for PAS development in conjunction with Intermediate Developmental Education (IDE) designation, typically at the 10-12 year commissioned service point. In addition there are limited PAS opportunities as part of SDE. Officers designated on this IAS development path will accomplish a one year IDE or SDE program and serve in an international pol-mil affairs assignment on their first or second assignment post-DE. Further developmental opportunities on the PAS track may be available as determined by the PAFSC functional Development Team (DT) and the needs of the Air Force.


For further information on Attaché and SCO assignment options, or other FAO opportunities, please check out the International Airmen milsuite portal.
