Airman’s story:  

 

“I am a community service oriented person who loves to get out and support our community,” Galioto said. “I always head up a food bank event within my unit to help support the community. I also love sports, and since being from the Seattle area, I am a huge Seattle Seahawks fan. I also enjoy hockey and attend many of the games locally.

Supervisor comments:

“Senior Airman Galioto negotiates, selects contractors, and oversees a $7 million construction contract portfolio in support of the 82nd Training Wing and the 80th Flying Training Wing,” said Master Sgt. Willie Davis, source selection NCO in Charge. “Even though his work is often unnoticed by his customers, his actions reach all aspects of Sheppard operations. His projects include the recently completed Sheppard Club renovations, temporary lodging facility upgrades, air conditioner replacement at the 782nd, storm damage repair at Lake Texoma, and airfield drainage improvements. These projects ensure the quality of life and mission effectiveness of all Sheppard trainees, trainers, leaders, and support personnel.”
