Commander’s comments: “Airman Justiniani has distinguished herself since arriving at Luke,” said Lt. Col.

She’s a selfless volunteer and is on pace to set the record for shortest time period for an apprentice controller to obtain a tower certification here at Luke. She is self-motivated, never requires directive guidance and is receptive to constructive criticism.”
