19th Airlift Wing priority portrayed and why?

Johnson serves as a Health Services Administrator which is a primarily administrative career field, but he demonstrated his capabilities as a multi-capable Airman providing medic coverage for a Security Forces joint heavy weapons certification course. During this five-day course, Johnson provided preventative care to the students, treated four injuries, and was vital to the team accomplishing all training ahead of schedule with no mission impacting injuries.
