Core Value Portrayed: Service Before Self
Why is serving in the Air Force important to you?
“In the Air Force I feel my contribution carries the most weight. I don't think it's fair to enjoy the amazing life America offers without giving our country something back in return.”
What accomplishment during your Air Force career are you most proud of?
“I'm proud of becoming part of the NCO corps and being trusted to shape today's Airmen and make them better.”
What are your personal and/or professional goals?
“My personal goal is that I would like to complete my bachelor degree in Aeronautical Science. My professional goal is to mentor my Airmen to the best of my ability and set them up for success.”
What is your favorite part of your job?
“My favorite part of the job is the importance of it. Ever since airplanes left the ground they've needed a strong and light structure from wood and canvas, to aluminum, to advanced composites. My duty is to make that structure strong and secure for our pilots to fly safely.”
How does the individual portray that core value?
Service Before Self: “Staff Sgt. Hall is a rare NCO,” said Master Sgt. Jennifer Moser, 100th MXS Aircraft Structural Maintenance section chief. “He’s a caring individual that takes hours out of his day to develop and mentor his Airmen. He is a hard worker and enjoys the challenges that our job presents on a daily basis. He is very task oriented and has both followership and leadership traits. He’s one of the NCO’s in our section that will volunteer at the expense of his own personal desire or needs.”
