As a 913th Operations Support Squadron intelligence analyst, SSgt Lawson has portrayed undaunted tactical airlift and bolstered Agile Combat Support through intelligence integration with mission planning aircrew. In supporting both 19th Airlift Wing and 913th Airlift Group aircrew, he exemplifies total force integration
