Why is serving in the Air Force important to you?

What is your favorite part of your job?
my primary career field as a tiltrotor mechanic, and managing the squadron’s
finances as the resource advisor, has truly opened my eyes to all the things that
happen behind the scenes to make the mission happen.
How does the individual portray that core value?
"Tech. Sgt. Cirioni is the
squadron resource advisor and his position deals with large amounts of money
and resources," said Master Sgt. Carlton Wilson, 352nd SOMXS Commander's Support Staff section chief. "He's in a
prime position to guard against fraud, waste and abuse. Moreover, Tech. Sgt. Cirioni is in a key position to advise
the squadron commander on resource availability, constraints, and
"On top of that, it's his
responsibility to review the squadron’s Defense Travel System and Government
Travel Card reports and to identify potential misuse. Integrity is at the core of the position Sergeant
Cirioni holds and a great understanding and application of “Integrity First” is
imperative to the success of his mission in our squadron," Wilson said.
