7th AF command chief visits Wolf Pack
KUNSAN AIR BASE, Republic of Korea -- Chief Master Sergeant Anthony Johnson, Seventh Air Force command chief, took an immersion tour here at the Wolf Pack Dec. 4-5.
The experience was designed to give the command chief a first-hand look at the 8th Fighter Wing mission.
He toured the 8th Operations Support squadron, Security Forces and Logistics Readiness, sections of the 8th Maintenance Squadron, and various other groups.
“Our folks took away the importance of the chief's focus on wingmanship,” said Master Sgt. Dennis Lotito, 8 Operations Support Squadron aircrew flight equipment superintendent. “I think the immersion highlighted some of the manning challenges associated with our career field against the nature of short tours here and the training issues we face.”
In addition to the information on where and how Kunsan performs day-to-day, leadership gained knowledge on the tough jobs Airmen perform.
After a day of hands-on experience, the command chief had the opportunity to watch the Wolf Pack Theater Group performance on sexual assault, which is one of the highlights of his speech in affiliation with the wingman concept.
“What I first took from when he showed up was that he made time for his Airmen,” said Senior Airman Dorresalyn Moses, 8th Communication Squadron cable and antenna maintenance technician. “When he talked to us he said that ‘when he was coming up in the military ranks, the way people handled these types of subjects was shut up and handle your business’. Therefore in so many words he explained how the military has conformed and how Airmen are being molded as they come in to the military. Even though abuse is prevalent in some areas of the military there is a support system and leadership like this makes a difference.”
