19th Airlift Wing priority portrayed and why? SrA Gray leads well above his pay grade, directing teams in the repair of emergency egress lighting systems across the wing.  Additionally, he embraces combat culture, recently training five Airmen on electrical system troubleshooting in Chemical, Biological, Radiological and Nuclear (CBRN) a environments, preparing them for upcoming deployments and the next peer fight.  Finally, SrA Gray aided the 19th Airlift Wing’s recognition of the Month of the Military Family, by replacing the lighting system at the main gate’s static display with high efficiency color-changing LEDs which bathe the C-130 in a purple hue.
