Beale Air Force Base, Calif. -- Airmen from various career fields now have a chance to learn about how their impact and mission comes together to make the bigger picture with maintainers.
Airman 1st Class Nicholas Morris, 9th Communication Squadron mission defense team technician, and Staff Sgt. Stephanie Echeverria-Correa, 9th Force Support Squadron NCOIC of customer support, came and learned how their jobs effect the mission with the Maintainer For A Day program.
“To learn a new job and see how my job combines for our mission here at Beale is an eye opener and I really enjoy learning that we are all connected.” said Morris.
The MFAD program combines Airmen from different careers and allows them to come out and learn how maintainers work and how each section builds the big mission picture with integration.
“In my understanding, mission success is not only my mission, but every mission stems from total integration of all brother and sister squadrons here at Beale.” said Staff Sgt. Michael Browell, 99th Aircraft Maintance Unit crew chief.
The 9th Aircraft Maintance Squadron is revamping the program to get more Airmen involved and bring awareness to the Recce town mission. With feedback and coordination this has the potential for so much integration and education among the Recce Airmen.
“I really enjoyed how the maintainers took their time to explain and teach us how things operate and even though there was a lot of Information” said Echeverria-Correa, “This experience definitely shines a light on our team and how our jobs help Recce Town Airmen all across the base.“
