Praise for Buckley gate guard
Published November 24, 2014
It has been a long time since I was an active-duty major in the Air Force and I just want to take a moment to commend and thank a senior airman, sergeant in my day, who was on duty this past Saturday at the Aspen St Gate at 0835. This proud, sharp-dressed professional of your security forces, security police in my day, rendered me a sharp salute and a courteous welcome. This security sentry personifies professionalism and reflects well on your wing and the USAF.
In my unit, and on my watch, I would have nominated this outstanding team member for the Stripes for Exceptional Performers Program. Sadly, from my car view, I did not get his name. Please pass on my thanks and commendation to this fine young man. All of you remain in my prayers.
I'm extremely proud of our defenders and comments like yours confirm my belief that our 460th Security Forces Squadron Defenders are among the very best in our Air Force. Our Defenders continually sacrifice and protect us across the installation. Thanks again for the great words - HUA!
