Commander’s comments: “Senior Airman Thompson maintains a ‘can-do’ attitude,” said Maj. Raymond Chester, 56th CS commander. “There’s a saying, ‘every challenge is an opportunity.’ She only sees opportunities. As the booster club president, she goes all-out to make the CS a fun place to work where CommBats are proud to serve. She’s an outstanding client systems technician. She resolved more than 30 BlackBerry e-mail issues. I’ve received notes from squadron commanders who she has helped. She’s raising a family and on top of it all, completed requirements for a degree. She is ‘all in’ … the benchmark Airman.”
