Team Buckley still reeling in awards

BUCKLEY AIR FORCE BASE, Colo. --  Some Team Buckley members and units brought home 14th Air Force and Air Force Space Command awards, as the 2012 award season begins to wrap up.

Senior Master Sgt. Bruce Campbell, 460th Security Forces Squadron operations superintendent and Tracy Rousseau, 460th Operation Support Squadron chief of scheduling, sustainment and configuration management, were two recent individuals to be recognized at the 14th Air Force level.


Campbell was the recipient of the General Charles A. Horner Tiger Award. The award recognizes the accomplishments of an officer and enlisted individual assigned to 14th Air Force who demonstrates the highest degree of professionalism, leadership, integrity, dedication and courage in the performance of their duties and conduct of their lives, according to 14th Air Force Instruction 36-2801, Fourteenth Air Force Recognition Program.

Campbell said he was surprised but elated when he heard about winning the award. "To me it just means I'm a representation of the squadron and security forces as a whole."

During the majority of the award period Campbell filled unit's chief slot and was also the operations superintendent, making him the senior enlisted leader responsible for 209 security forces members. During that time period he helped his unit get through some tough times, assisted in relief aid during the Colorado Wildfires, and provided resources during the Aurora Movie Theater shooting.

He was able to maintain eight-hour shifts for his squadron while approximately 70 members deployed during the year. However, Campbell said what meant the most to him was his units Air Force Space Command award.

The 46th SFS was recognized as the best medium security forces squadron AFSPC. "I was happier we won that one, that impacts the whole squadron," Campbell said.


Rousseau was the other 14th AF level Civilian Supervisory Category II award winner. She stated that she was in awe when she heard about her award.

She recalled some things that she thought helped her win her award. She helped manage one of the largest software upgrades in history without operational impact, and reduced software upgrade spending by an estimated $185 million.

"None of these things would have been possible without outstanding leadership support," Rousseau stated. "Without their willingness to allow us to look at things in a new way and find better, more efficient ways to do thing and giving us the support needed to try different things until everything worked properly."
