23d Wing Public Affairs
"As a young weapons troop, one of the greatest things is seeing the aircraft that I finished loading with munitions, come back from a combat sortie empty with all the munitions expended. There is no greater feeling of accomplishment than knowing that your hard work payed off. "Now that I am a flight chief, my feeling of accomplishment comes from taking care of my troops -- whether it's watching them turn wrenches, load during load competitions, or better yet watching them receive the recognition they deserve during award ceremonies. It all makes it worth it at the end of the day!" (U.S. Air Force Master Sgt. Joe Holdcroft, armament flight chief from the 23d Equipment Maintenance Squadron)
