“…I want to do everything I can…”

BEALE AIR FORCE BASE, Calif. --
"I've been the noncommissioned officer in charge of the community partnership office since last October, meaning I am responsible for ensuring Airmen have plenty of events to attend on and off base. It's an experimental job title Beale has been assigned to test and I am the third person at this base to hold the position. I gained some experience hosting events when I ran the fitness center, but having to organize large scale events and arrange for civilians to come on base is definitely a big difference. We use every avenue we can to make the base aware of the events we have planned. I even personally visit Airmen at their shops to inform them of an upcoming event. It's my job to make sure there's always something to do on base, and I want to do everything I can to make each event memorable."
