Airman Hughes has set himself apart from his peers with the knowledge and experience that he brought from his previous career field in civilian aviation, always striving to excel in his current job as a Crew Chief. To document his thirst for excellence, he has had three Quality Assurance evaluations since his arrival in September 2012 resulting in three perfect passes by QA.
