Commander’s comments: “Airman Wilcox ‘gets it,’” said Maj. Raymond Chester, 56th CS. “He is a rare individual who holds himself to a high level of accountability, yet doesn’t take life so seriously he misses out on the good things. He has a fantastic attitude and outlook on life; perhaps one of the most positive individuals I have met. As a recent Airman Leadership School graduate, he’ll be a great mentor to any Airman he supervises as he naturally embodies the concepts being taught in today’s resiliency trainings.”
