Commander’s comments: “Staff sergeant Scharp is an exceptional junior NCO that consistently exceeds his personal and professional goals,” said Maj. Kathryn Roman, 56th EMS commander. “His professional attitude and enthusiasm have a positive impact on not only the maintenance flight but the squadron as well. He is very hands-on when it comes to training and helping others. He volunteers his time on and off base to help people. He strives for perfection; he tries to never be satisfied with the status quo. His ambition, drive and willingness to accept challenges are evident as he fills in the position of dock chief and continues to be a problem solver for issues well above his rank. He is an invaluable asset to the unit and epitomizes living the Air Force core values.”
