SGT XXXX provided indispensable leadership and direction for an 11-man Aerial Port team during Arctic Anvil/Rapid Airlift Week '18. Using his experience and knowledge, he mentored his team during 12 mission uploads and 5 mission downloads and 11 joint inspections. To meet evolving changes, he swapped chalks between the 1/5 Stryker BCT and the 821 Contingency Response Element in order to fully support their loads. His expertise and leadership ensured the safe transportation of more than 250 tons and 455 passengers and avoided critical mission delays. SGT XXXXX's performance reflects great credit upon himself, the 821 CRS, and the United States Army.
