Warrior of the Week


Staff Sgt. Michael Greer, 34th Aircraft Maintenance Squadron, is the Warrior of the Week. He is an aircraft armament systems specialist deployed from Hill Air Force Base, Utah and from Moss Point Miss. His primary duty is to load and unload munitions and troubleshoot and repair weapons systems on the F-16 Fighting Falcon. When asked his thought on being named Warrior of the Week Sergeant Greer replied, “It gives other people a chance to see what we do on the flightline everyday and it highlights my careerfield.” Sergeant Greer explains the importance of his job by saying, “It keeps servicemembers on the ground safe and allows them to focus on their mission.” His supervision stated, Sergeant Greer has a “Take the Bull by the Horns” job and leadership attitude. He continually steps up no matter what he is tasked with to get the mission accomplished. Sergeant Greer stepped up as the weapons section PTL, as a certified cross fit trainer he took the weapons section from a 68 percent pass rate to 94 percent pass rate of the 455 AEW fitness assessment in just a matter of weeks greatly improving the overall health and well being of the entire section. He has volunteered numerous hours at the USO stocking the refrigerator and has volunteered time and donated equipment at the “Rock” gym for a circuit class. Sergeant Greer continually sets the standard for the 34 EAMU weapons section. He is definitely an example others follow.

I've tried so hard to stay away from military.com, Stars and Stripes and www.af.mil, etc.

I can't. I need to know what is going on over there.

I need to know the good, I need to know the not-so-good. I need to know.

Hubster gave me one of 'those' looks, when I told him I am posting on my blog. But, this is a 'feel-good' story. There are so many of our soldiers who deserve to be recognized...and I will continue to do my part to share their story. Unless...my heart hurts too much. I will then evaporate for as long as it takes for me to take a deep breath and pull it together.

May Almighty God Bless and Protect each and every Airman, Soldier, Sailor and Marine.

I know, too, and I am glad to see you post something on the positive side. I read and appreciate the Star to Gold post, but they will take their toll. These guys and gals will ever be in the minds and hearts of those of us who appreciate them. But the untold, positive stories mean even more. Great post, AM.
