My Rich Uncle

“A no-nonsense, tell-it-like-it-is guide to pursuing a successful military career” from a Senior Master Sergeant in the United States Air Force (Midwest Book Review).

A.J. Kehl’s well-crafted guide is designed with one purpose in mind: To make sure you make the most out of your time in the armed forces. Sgt. Kehl distinguishes his book from any other you will read, pointing out all the important things that rarely, if ever, make it to print. Hot items such as promotion, leadership, networking, and traveling make this a must-read for anyone now on active duty, thinking of joining the military, or who has spent time within this unique lifestyle.

My Rich Uncle includes an invaluable collection of knowledge, wisdom, and insight from numerous USAF leaders, all of which is geared toward helping fellow airmen find success in their careers by highlighting the cultural things we expect airmen to know, or at least figure out, but which are rarely taught. This book will help you successfully navigate an Air Force career by providing insight into the expectations and the steps for YOU to take in order to maximize your service time and set yourself up for success. It also highlights little known programs, like Air Force Lean and Continuous Process Improvement, that empower airmen to find root cause solutions and reduce time-wasting practices that do not further your career.

My Rich Uncle: An Informal Guide to Maximizing Your Enlistment is written by an airman for men and women who want to get the most out of their service.

“This is a military guide like no other!” — J. Lewis, Command CMSgt (Ret.)
