Commanders comments: “Staff sergeant Baker is an NCO who often operates above her rank,” said Maj. Jessi Rozman, 56th CPTS commander. “She displays a positive attitude and work ethic that is reflected in her duty performance. She sets the standard for others to follow. Her attention to detail and desire to exceed expectations is evident in the quality of work she produces, most notably as the 56th Fighter Wing unit deployment manager. Her demeanor is always spot on and the caliber of NCO every commander desires. She leads with a smile and encourages others to succeed.”
