AETC Form 341: The "Gotcha Form"

By

(Continued from Air Force Technical School Restrictions )

You'll learn all about the AETC Form 341 in Air Force Basic Military Training. This is the primary method the Air Education and Training Command uses to document discrepancies and excellence for non-prior service recruits in both basic training and Air Force Technical Schools.

At the top of the form are places for the recruit to enter his/her name, rank, and their squadron/flight information. Recruits in basic training and non-prior service airmen in technical schools must carry two completed copies of this form with them at all times.

If a staff member (Basic Training MTI, Military Training Leade r, instructor, Airman leader, etc.) observes a discrepancy or observers you doing something extremely excellent, they can "pull" a 341 from you. Then they complete the bottom of the form, documenting what they observed and returns the form to your squadron for further action (disciplinary action, chewing out, pat-on-the-back, or whatever your chain of command determines is appropriate).
