Support Airman of the Week: SSgt. Crayton


Staff Sgt. Anthony Crayton, 82nd Force Support Squadron formal training NCO in charge and native of Trenton, New Jersey, has been in the Air Force for 15 years and is the Support Airman of the Week at Sheppard Air Force Base, Texas, for the week of Aug. 8-14, 2017.


Most significant accomplishments:


“I am the newly appointed unit deployment manager (UDM) and successfully deployed five members to the area of responsibility with zero discrepancies along with accomplishing my duties of formal training,” Crayton said.


Airman’s story:


“I am married with two children - Marques and Sean - ages 12 and nine,” Crayton said. “I enjoy playing basketball and learning new things and I hope to retire from the military to start a business of my own.”


Supervisor’s comments:


“Sergeant Crayton is the Airman responsible for formal training,” said Rhonda Gettig, force development flight chief. “He makes sure that training slots are filled and a seat does not sit vacant in a classroom, especially the squadron officer school residential course. He works with both officers and enlisted personnel and has done an excellent job of managing the formal training program for both wings. There have been no complaints, no missing training documents, and no one saying ‘I did not get notified.’ Added to that is the enlisted professional military education function as well as taking on UDM. Sergeant Crayton also participates in squadron sports every chance he gets and always has a professional and positive attitude.”
