Congratulations to Airman 1st Class Tavon Trotman, 86th Communications Squadron client systems technician, for winning the Larger Than Life award. Trotman is deployed here from Ramstein Air Base, Germany, to support the 39th Communications Squadron. As a client systems tech, Trotman sustains, troubleshoots, and repairs standard voice, data, video network, and cryptographic client devices in fixed and deployed environments. “During tech school I hit a rough patch and…began to give up on myself, but my classroom instructor, Master Sgt. Linstrom, would not give up on me. He took me to the side and kept telling me not to give up or quit because it would lead to a long, disappointing career of quitting and giving up. Then, on my final chance, I passed and I couldn’t believe it. He never gave up on me because he is a great leader and that’s what great leaders do for their Airmen. As I become an NCO or Officer, I will do the same.”
