How do your day-to-day duties contribute to mission success?
By providing service proficiently, it helps boost morale overall. It allows members to focus on their jobs so they are not distracted with financial matters.
If you could change one thing about the Air Force what would it be?
I appreciate the Aerospace Expeditionary Force concept, but I wish it was a bit clearer with respect to who would be deploying when and where.
What has been your most memorable experience in the Air Force?
Honor Guard duty. Being involved in funeral processions for veterans and honoring their memory was a very humbling experience.
Duties, responsibilities, and accomplishments:
I provide customer service and support to the men and women of Buckley Air Force Base by processing travel vouchers, military pay documents and permanent changes of station. Some accomplishments of mine include the leadership and academic achievement awards at Airman Leadership School and being "coined" by Col. David Ziegler, 460th Space Wing commander. I also received a certificate of appreciation from the 140th Civil Engineer Squadron, and a Top Performer Award for my squadron for May 2006.
