Juliet Gudgel


Juliet Gudgel, Retired from the United States Air Force in 2021 with her final assignment as the Air Education & Training Command, Command Chief Master Sergeant.  With over 28 years of military service Juliet still had a passion to support her fellow service members.  She is the Director of the Aligned Education Foundation (AEF) headquartered in San Antonio, Texas. 

The AEF is a 501(c)(3) service organization run by “Team 9” – a group of retired E-9 Senior Enlisted Leaders (SELs) who remain dedicated to the care and mentorship of our Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, Marines, Coastguardsmen, and Guardians.  I may be retired, but my passion to serve remains

“I believe we can use our experiences to help others… We lived it ourselves and learned how to fill in the gaps – and we want to share that knowledge”
