19th Airlift Wing priority portrayed and why?

Staff Sgt. Cameron Goebel expertly scheduled and solidified twenty-five Royal New Zealand Air Force, Air National Guard, Reserve, host unit, and faculty development courses. These efforts led to the graduation of 121 students through the delivery of 2,554 hours of instruction.

Additionally, SSgt Goebel united with the maintenance contractor for the 714th TRS and coordinated the replacement of a worn landing gear component on the Main Landing Gear Trainer which is utilized for Air Force, Coast Guard, Marine, and international training courses.  This action expedited the return of capabilities and avoided an estimated 320 hours of lost training time.

Finally, SSgt Goebel paired with the Detachment’s Curriculum team as the Aerospace Reclamation & Repair Subject Matter Expert.  He evaluated fourteen objectives for two international courses, concreting the FY23 training plan and $10M in international contracts.
