The course is designed to test the physical and mental toughness needed for the
warrior ethos, the foundation of what it means to be an Airman, said Master Sgt. Patrick Dutkevitch, flight chief for the 4th Space Launch Squadron and one of the event planners. In fact, "Fitness" is the Year of Leadership focus for June, while "Warrior Ethos" is the Year of Leadership focus for July. This event encompasses both.
