Commander’s comments: “Senior Airman Williams has a great work ethic,” said Lt. Col.

He’s a hard working Airman, quiet and focused on every task. He steps out of his comfort zone to learn new things and has a quiet confidence that sets him apart. This has earned him the respect of his peers. He has excelled in every section he’s been placed in and is committed to doing his best on every job given. He was recently promoted below-the-zone, and I have nothing but great things to say about him.”
