Top Hand – the program, the Airmen, the legacy

Maj. Mark Carter, assistant director of operations and member of the Top Hand program, 576th Flight Test Squadron, Vandenberg Air Force Base, Calif., poses for a photo in the ICBM Heritage Room, May 7, 2021. The Top Hand program, which was started in 1972, offers a high-pace environment, professional development and career opportunities for missile operators (13N). The program has also experienced many changes throughout the years, with the latest change allowing for missile maintainer Airmen, both officer and enlisted, to apply to the program.
