19th Airlift Wing priority portrayed and why?

As a flight and operational medicine technician, Armond identified a critical gap in Fly Status PHA appointment availability.  She coordinated with leadership to convert approximately 60 appointments, and personally reached out to each member coming due to schedule and ensured they continued to be cleared to fly.


Armond was vital to clearing the record review backlog by expediting about 200 reviews and increasing the 19th Airlift Wing's Individual Medical Readiness rate by 9% in just 2 months.


Additionally, she partnered with 19th Security Forces Squadron members and 19th Civil Engineer Squadron firefighters to rally volunteers and ensure medic representation for the base's 9/11 memorial ceremony
