Brian Eskew, 82nd Civil Engineer Squadron contracting officer representative and native of Greenville, South Carolina, has been with the Air Force for 26 years and is the Support Airman of the Week at Sheppard Air Force Base, Texas, for the week of Nov. 22-28, 2016.


Most significant accomplishments:    


- Being a father to three children


Airman’s story:


“Being a parent takes up a lot of my time with school and sports activities,” Eskew said. “What time I have left, I do landscaping and home improvements. It’s been said that I am a jack of all trades and master of none. I have been in the Wichita Falls area since 1977 and have worked at Sheppard since April 1990 and have been with the amazing 82nd Civil Engineer Squadron for little over a year now. I enjoy working with my peers closely in meeting the continuing challenges this installation hands us daily.”


Supervisor comments:


“The Civil Engineering Squadron was incredibly blessed to have lured Brian away from the Force Support Squadron,” said Richard Milhollon, performance management chief. “He brings a whole new meaning to the phrase ‘exceptional customer service.’ Brain is part of my service contract section which surveils and monitors more than $5.5 million worth of contracts.”


“Our service contract section was under manned until Brian showed up,” Milhollon continued. “During this past year in CES as a contract monitor, he has used his extraordinary skills to effectively execute more than $1.6 million in work associated with the protective coating maintenance contract. This greatly impacts Sheppard’s training mission by not only keeping the facilities looking great but also saving energy dollars as well. I am very thankful to have Brian as a part of the CES family.”
