Meet Protocol Professional Jason Seales!

PSOW Staff - Monday, March 24, 2014

What is your proudest moment as a protocol officer? My proudest moment so far was wrapping up the 2012 Chiefs of Defense (CHOD) Conference in Sydney, Australia. It was a huge conference with over 30 VIPs, their spouses, and their staffs in attendance. We executed the conference flawlessly, thanks to the outstanding working relationship we had with the Australian CHOD team, and of course, an excellent protocol team! Both ADM Locklear (Commander, U.S. Pacific Command) and GEN Hurley (Chief of Australia’s Defense Forces) were very pleased, and I was very proud to know that I contributed so much to that effort!  Read more


Meet Protocol Professional Rhonda McMichael!

What is your proudest moment as a protocol officer? While serving as the Protocol Manager, assigned to First Air Force (Air Forces Northern), Tyndall AFB, Florida in Oct 2012, I was tasked to escort the Chief of Staff of the Air Force, General Mark A. Welsh, III while at Tyndall AFB. The significance of this task was that I had been assigned under “Colonel” Welsh at Maxwell AFB, Alabama, 15 years prior to this meeting, when I was just starting my Air Force career. Being able to reengage with General Welsh in the capacity of lead protocol officer has definitely been the highlight of my career thus far.  Read more

You Only Get Once Chance to Make a First Impression

PSOW Staff - Tuesday, February 18, 2014

Here’s the scenario...a disheveled man wearing a suit straight out of the ‘80s walks into a boardroom. He sports a wrinkled, poorly fitted jacket with pants that are much too short for his stature. His white socks peek out from the two inches of space left between the top of his black shoes and the hem of his pants. A plaid collared shirt and horizontally striped tie completes the ensemble. Now, I would like to introduce you to your attorney. What do you think of this man? Do you respect him? Are you confident in his abilities?   Read more
