Congratulations to Senior Airman Melodye Mosby, 39th Air Base Wing Command Post senior emergency actions controller, for winning the deployed Larger Than Life award. Mosby volunteered to come on the 120-day manning assist temporary duty to Incirlik Air Base, Turkey, from Aviano Air Base, Italy. In recent months, Mosby has worked primarily as the senior emergency actions controller, and led a four man team during a high controller turnover period.
“Great mentors are the key to going down the right path,” said Mosby. “I would like to thank my supervision here, as well as at Aviano, for getting me to this point.” (U.S. Air Force photo by Staff Sgt. Brittany E. N. Murphy)
