The mission of the United State Air Force Military Training Instructor Association (MTIA) is to improve the morale and esprit de corps of all current and former Military Training Instructors, as well as advance the cause of drill and ceremonies. To that end, we support numerous social events throughout the year at JBSA-Lackland and abroad. Principally, we host an annual convention during the month of October that recognizes the numerous contributions of Military Training Instructors who are currently serving on active duty, as well as those who are retired. Additionally, we also provide support in other arenas, such as High School JROTC, where many former active duty instructors serve in post-retirement positions, while others volunteer their time at drill meets and encampments. Our goal is to highlight the accomplishments of our membership as they continue to mold the youth of today to ensure the bright future of the Air Force tomorrow.
