STEP promotion!

Col. Benjamin Jonsson, right, 6th Air Refueling Wing commander, promotes Staff Sgt. Michael Otremba, 6th Security Forces Squadron, to the rank of technical sergeant under the Stripes for Exceptional Performers program (STEP) at MacDill Air Force Base, Florida Oct. 16, 2020. The STEP program was established in 1980 and is designed to meet those unique circumstances that, in the commander’s judgment, clearly warrant promotion. Under the STEP program, commanders of MAJCOMs, field operating agencies and senior officers in organizations with large enlisted populations may promote a limited number of Airmen who show exceptional potential to the grades of staff and technical sergeant.
