Despite the high ops-tempo in his duty section, Sergeant Crawford manages to find time to volunteer as a Youth Sports referee, lead volunteers for the Special Olympics, serve as his unit CFC officer, and lead 66 members through 70 fitness sessions. Sergeant Crawford also plays a vital role in the development and progression of the Airmen in his care. He consistently inspires each of them to complete educational classes, participate in base events, and contribute to the Tucson community. Sergeant Crawford is a totally involved professional and we are fortunate to have him as part of our service!
