This past quarter, he oversaw 338 cases. He is the primary coordinator of the DS awards program, which ensures all squadron packages are reviewed, well-written and turned in on time. He is the clinic’s alternate education and training monitor for two specialty codes. Sergeant Toliver has offered his time at the Airman’s Attic, Operation Thunderbox, and numerous squadron, group, and wing functions. He leads from the front.”
