He was selected to oversee a position normally held by an NCO, where he leads four technicians in day-to-day operations. His team averages 1,300 prescriptions daily using a $10 million state-of-the-art automated robot. His performance has resulted in him being chosen as the squadron’s Combined Federal Campaign representative and emcee for group events.”
