Years in service: Three

Education: Associate in science at Cedar Valley College, associate in electronics systems technology at Community College of the Air Force, pursuing a bachelor’s in management information systems from Park University

Inspirations: Making my family proud, living life free of regrets

Goals: Finish a master’s degree and learn to fly a plane

Greatest feat: Becoming conscious of my faults, then taking my life in a different direction

Famous last words: “The only things we can control are our attitudes, our level of effort and how we manage our time.”

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.”
