Josh maintains air traffic control radios and navigational aids in direct support of the flying mission, and he understands the importance and value of his work. Despite being a young Airman, he truly gets it. He tackles issues with a sense of urgency and does not rest until he has resolution. He’s a natural leader and rallies those around him. The sky is the limit for this young man.”
