An 86th Munitions Squadron Stockpile Management crew chief received the honor of being Ramstein’s Airlifter of the Week, Jan. 10, 2019.
Johnson is credited for his work that set the stage for operations needed to free floor space for an important shipment received in Fall 2018 that ultimately guaranteed the successful delivery of 92 munition containers. Johnson is responsible for the safe transportation, storage, and handling of a diverse munitions stockpile that supports home station requirements, as well as the entire United States Air Forces in Europe and Africa theater. Johnson, a Texas national, maintains 114 munitions storage structures, ensuring the safety, security and reliability of the war reserve materiel stockpile.
Mr. Scott Lockard, 86th Airlift Wing vice director, lauded U.S. Air Force Airman 1st Class Joseph R.S. Johnson for his excellence in executing the Air Force’s mission across the European theater of operation.
Johnson is striving for his five-level upgrade and is progressing ahead of his peers. Additionally, he was hand-selected for a swing shift re-warehousing crew based on his self-starting attitude and attention to detail.
“Johnson is always the first to volunteer, not only for work tasks, but also wingman opportunities,” said U.S. Air Force Maj. Randon S. Davis, 86th Munitions Squadron commander.
Specifically, Johnson has voluntarily taken standby duties on multiple occasions to enable others the opportunity to travel and enjoy time off.
“Johnson embodies the wingman concept and routinely aids his peers with vehicle training and off duty transportation,” said Davis.
The Airlifter of the Week program recognizes Ramstein Airmen who, through hard work and dedication, make the 86th AW the World’s Best Wing.
