“I am only one class away from earning my Bachelor’s in management,” Buerck said. “I am also one credit away from earning my Instructor of Technology and Military Science Community College of the Air Force degree. Also, being vectored to be an instructor was a great accomplishment.”

“I was born and raised in the small town of Perryville, Missouri,” he said. “I have a wonderful wife, Danielle, who is also from Perryville; we have been married for 10 years now. She is a stay at home mom to our three sons and one daughter. Our oldest, Brayden, is seven years old, Bentley is six, Bryler is three, and our daughter was born November 12 this year. We have two family dogs named Callie and Sadie. In my spare time I like to go bowling, hang out with friends, and play whatever my kids want to do.”


Supervisor comments:


“Staff Sergeant Buerck brings discipline, tact and promptness to a world of young new Airmen daily, said Tech. Sgt. James Williams, fuels training course supervisor. “Being able to have NCO’s with 10 years of operational time come back to Sheppard is a blessing for our staff members and the Airmen in Training. Ranging from Deployments to overseas duty his vast experience in the fuels career field reflect in his teaching style keeping Airmen engaged and interested in not only the mission, but that of the United States Air Force as well.”
