Greatest accomplishment:  Back in February of 2004, in Lakehurst, NJ, I performed life sustaining measures until emergency responders arrived. I secured the scene, eliminated fire hazards, and saved the life of a 38 year old man. The man sustained a fractured cervical injury, collapsed lung, four broken ribs, and a severe concussion. I received a coin by Major General Grey for my selfless actions and was commended by the first responders.

Hobbies, off-duty interests: Working with various private/public organizations to better the community, volunteering at the Wichita Falls Susan G.

Also enjoys training dogs and volunteering at the Wichita Falls Humane Society.

Reason for submission:  In the past five weeks, Tech. Sgt. Humbert represented the 82nd TRW SAPR Office at the National Sexual Assault Conference and provided victim care during a sexual assault courts martial as a victim advocate.  He also garnered 70 volunteers for the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure. Furthermore, Humbert has revamped the Unit Training Program operating instruction, ensuring compliance with multiple instructions and submitted 28 Instructor Qualification worksheets, CCAF Instructor certifications and Master Instructor packages.

Commander's comments: Lt. Col. James R. Beam, Jr., 366th TRS commander:  Since voluntarily stepping up to take over the Unit Training and Deployment office, Tech. Sgt. Humbert has ensured the squadron is always in compliance with all applicable instructions. He further cross talks with two detachments and works jointly with Army/Navy personnel to ensure mission accomplishment. Additionally, his expertise in management and leadership has paved the way to correct more than 300 potential write ups during the last Compliance Inspection and ensured across the board mission readiness. Dustin has reviewed more than 200 faculty and Air Force Training Records, submitted 201 training requests and validated 137 Master Instructor and CCAF Instructor certification packages. Lastly, Dustin is a true wingman; leading the way for the 82nd TRW Students Against Sexual Assault and Harassment as the program manager and a SAPR Victim Advocate. Dustin has accomplished all of this while attending school full time towards his Masters of Business Administration and maintaining a 3.7 CGPA. Lastly, he was this quarter's group Support NCO winner. 

Humbert was recognized with a wing coin presented by Brig. Gen. Michael Fantini, 82nd TRW commander.
