Return of roll call: What do you think?

The Air Force announced last week that, beginning immediately, the service-wide roll call was back. As Chief Master Sergeant of the Air Force James Cody said, some airmen might start roll call the very next day.

Air Force Times would like to hear your thoughts on the return of this very old tradition. Has your unit started roll call yet? If not, do you know when it will begin? What do you think? Was it worth your time, and did you get anything out of it? Or if not, what do you think is wrong with roll call?

E-mail me at if you’d like to talk. If you’d prefer to remain anonymous, that’s fine.
