Roy Stresses Resiliency During Southwest Asia Tour

On the first stop of his Southwest Asia tour, CMSAF James Roy emphasized to airmen of the 379th Air Expeditionary Wing how maintaining professional standards and acting as good wingmen help reinforce resiliency. “Nobody’s exempt from being a good wingman,” said Roy during an enlisted all-call with more than 500 airmen at the wing’s undisclosed operating base in the region. He continued, “We have to understand that being a good wingman doesn’t end at the end of your duty shift, nor does it only apply to those of lower rank than you. Our airmen should be good wingmen to all who serve no matter the rank or the service.” During his Jan. 31 talk, Roy cited the example of SrA. Sarah Mattausch, who came to the help of a female colleague in distress and got her help. “Human life matters,” said Roy. (379th AEW report by SrA. Michael Charles)
