Selection Reasons: 

As the NCOIC of Intelligence Training, Technical Sgt. Tinsley consistently excels in the management of a complicated and time-consuming shop. He flawlessly oversees internal training, running all new members through initial orientation training, scheduling and tracking weekly in-depth continuation training for intel members from four squadrons, monitors CFETP progress for the entire shop, and provides critical support for his leadership on a day-to-day basis. In addition, he certified members as External Intelligence Trainers providing quality feedback, guidance and instruction. This allowed three personnel to be qualified to teach aircrew assigned threats and instruction. Additionally, he underwent certification to become a qualified Intel Evaluator, giving him the credentials to evaluate and instruct intel personnel, maintaining vital currencies and helping members to attain CMR status. After being IE certified, he executed a quick turnaround, overdue trip to Nellis in order to evaluate four personnel. Sergeant Tinsley also provides valuable mentorship to all of the Airmen in the intel shop. He shows a genuine concern for their professional and personal advancement, consistently spending time mentoring and guiding young Airmen as they begin their AF career. By all accounts, he is an exemplary example of what a technical sergeant should strive to be.

Concurrently, Sergeant Tinsley excelled in his additional duties. As a Government Purchase Card manager he monitored and executed $60,000 in purchases of new squadron equipment, ensuring critical modernization for necessary equipment. Additionally, as an ADPE assistant custodian he aided with the DRMO of over 50 computers while helping to manage the program for the entire squadron.

Sergeant Tinsley also spends time working within the local community – despite managing a busy home life.  He is involved in the planning and execution of a WWII medallion ceremony to honor 14 local veterans. He is also working as a volunteer for the DM-50 UofA tailgate and serves as a volunteer driver for AADD.
