3/28/2013 - LAUGHLIN AIR FORCE BASE, Texas -- The 47th Operations Group Aviation Resource Management team was awarded the Sergeant Dee Campbell Outstanding Small Unit award for 2012.
This award is given to the best ARM team in Air Education and Training Command that operates with 29 or less members.
"This is a huge accomplishment," said Tech. Sgt. Sonya Moran, 85th Flying Training Squadron ARM team member. "We support the busiest airfield in the Air Force, and it is very rewarding to receive recognition for the amount of work our team has done."
Aviation resource managers are responsible for in- and out-processing pilots, monitoring flight pay, standardizing processes and training plans, and basically everything that pertains to a pilot's career while they're at Laughlin, said Moran.
"The mission requires a collective effort from all the ARMs," said Chief Master Sgt. Carl Tennyson, 47th OG command chief. "Everyone has to do their part and be willing to fill in for other tasks if needed."
Some of the major accomplishments by the aviation resource managers include receiving an excellent on the consolidated unit inspection with three professional performers and standardizing the wing's Go/No-Go program.
"This is a true testament to the dedication and hard work put in by our ARMs," said Col. Andrew Brabson, 47th OG commander. "The level of performance across the group is so high that it is great to see our team be recognized by AETC."
