Name/Squadron: Airman 1st Class Christine Griffiths 355 FW/PA

First Sergeant: Master Sgt. Michael Kaczmarek

Duty title: Photojournalist

When joined the AF: Dec. 14, 2010

Hometown: Springhill, Florida

Hobbies: Learning graphic arts, soccer, playing with her puppies, exploring Tucson, hiking

Selection reasons: Airman 1st Class Christy Griffiths has been on a tear the last few months. Besides maintaining a high-level of production that we’ve come to expect, she has branched out and stepped up in various areas in the Fighter Wing Public Affairs Office. Taking her passion for graphic arts to a whole new level, Airman Griffiths sought out training to become the DM.AF.MIL webmaster after the guru had PCS’d. She took her new found position to greater heights by consolidating materials from around the website in more organized fashion…going as far as creating a brand new Angel Thunder page that can allow international media to gather information, imagery and video footage from one location. This is critical to highlighting the 1,500+ participants from 24 nations taking part in the Department of Defense’s #1 CSAR Exercise.

- More over with the change-over, Christy has stepped up to take charge of the PA ADPE account. Her tenacious efforts resulted in the discovery of 15 device discrepancies, and ultimately the unfreezing of the PA account allowing new mission critical items to be added and restoring mission capability. Whether it’s scoring a 98% on her PT test, or filling in for a coworker who was unable to complete a task – Airman Griffiths routinely steps up to the plate and shines as an invaluable member of the 355th Fighter Wing Public Affairs Office.
