The 82nd Training Wing "Commander's Wingman of Choice" award program is the commander's way of acknowledging Airmen for a job well done and to recognize Airmen who exemplify the spirit of the program.

Award recipients, who can be either military or government civilian employees, are nominated by their respective groups and also includes the wing staff agencies. Criteria for consideration include outstanding duty performance, community involvement and exemplary leadership.

Go by name: Chris

Duty title: Commercial Acquisition Team Lead

Hometown: Westhampton Beach, NY

Years of service and time on Sheppard: 82d Airborne Division, Team/Squad leader, US Army Ranger, 1986-89. (Earned Purple Heart due to injuries in Panama during Operation Just Cause). 701st MP Battalion, 1990-91.  While at Sheppard, has worked for 82 SVS from 2001-2007; 82 CES, 2007-2009; and 82 CONS, 2009 - Present.

Family: 2 sons, Derek (20 yrs old and in the USMC) and Stefan (17 yrs old, High School senior)

Education: BS in Mechanical Engineering, with Honors, Anglia Polytechnic (Cambridge, UK)

What inspires you: The ability of certain people to adjust under fire and still complete the mission

Future goals: To expand on the wide variety of job experience I have obtained at Sheppard AFB in order to make mission completion easier for all involved

Greatest accomplishment: My children

Hobbies, off-duty interests: Auto racing, the outdoors, hunting and general wildlife

Reason for submission: Executed over $5 million in contract requirements at end of year, a key reason the unit was able to execute $158 million total in FY12, the highest total in squadron history. Chris' impact can literally be felt across the installation, having procured everything from switches and servers for 82 CS critical to maintaining the base network, to classroom furtniture and training supplies for the training squadrons, to a new Fused Deposition Modeling system for the 982 MXS.

Commander's comments: "Chris' impact is measured by more than just dollars and number of contracts. The customer service he and his team deliver is what really sets him apart. Chris is constantly out and about and in the customers workplace, establishing relationships rather than sitting at his desk, and that's the brand of customer service he's teaching his Airmen every day." - Maj Hayes Weidman
