BUCKLEY AIR FORCE BASE, Colo. -- Staff Sgt. Sean Cochran, 2nd Space Warning Squadron, is Team Buckley's Warrior of the Week for Feb. 8. Sergeant Cochran is from Lisbon, Ohio and has served in the Air Force for four years. He enjoys playing billiards and spending time with friends.
Why was Staff Sgt Cochran nominated for Warrior of the Week?
"Sergeant Cochran was nominated for Warrior of the Week because of his impeccable work ethic. After serving four years in the 460th Space Communications Squasdron, where he was lauded as a top NCO, he is now assigned to the 2nd Space Warning Squadron. In only three months, he has accomplished more than many do in a year. He became 100 percent qualified on three critical space system networks in record time and has developed into a lead tester for the entire Space community. During the week of Dec. 7, Sergeant Cochran was vital in conducting a USSTRATCOM-led certification test for the missile warning mission. His knowledge and hard work ensures the mission of the 460th Operations Group continues to be a success," said Lt. Col. Jennifer Jenkins, 2nd SWS commander. "We'll be losing Sergeant Cochran this summer, as he's been selected for the White House Communications Team! We'll miss his energy and expertise for sure!"
