CMSgt Del Valle wraps up Team Osan immersion
OSAN AIR BASE, Republic of Korea -- Since his arrival at Osan in late February, Chief Master Sgt. Alex Del Valle, 51st Fighter Wing command chief, has been introduced to the various groups and tenant units across the base.
The Airmen provided Del Valle with insight about their respective units and also highlighted individual accomplishments.
“The Osan family is a tight-knit group of people,” said Del Valle. “I’ve seen a lot of tremendous work in my short time here.”
Through immersions with the groups, he is able to gain a deeper understanding of the employment of the Airmen across the base.
“It’s important for me to know [the units] to help make strategic decisions and get the resources needed to accomplish the missions here,” Del Valle said. “As I continue to move forward, I’ll continue to look toward the successes of our Airmen so we can praise them and also look for the shortfalls so we can fix them.
“The overall goal is to make Osan better with a stronger mission,” he continued.
Del Valle recently served as the Senior Enlisted Leader, Train, Advise, Assist Command-Air and Command Chief Master Sergeant, stationed at the 438th Air Expeditionary Wing, Forward Operated Base Oqab, Kabul, Afghanistan.
He is joined here by his wife, Caroline, and son, Gregory.
