  • My management skills were instrumental in recording all system defaults and solutions, providing a complete troubleshooting history for the 25S20 MOS.
  • I was assigned as the Team Leader for the repair and implementation of a defective Satellite Terminal, successfully bringing it to a mission-capable state.
  • I achieved an impressive 98% Satellite Transportable Terminal connection time during multiple Field Training Exercises and in preparation for JOAX.
  • I ensured continuous traffic on NC2 communication systems by maintaining all mission-required satellite communication systems above EUCOM and DISA standards.
  • I made valuable contributions to the Brigade’s overall success during MCSI Phase I through III and JOAX.
  • I assisted in the initial implementation of the ETC Common Operational Picture site, significantly enhancing the staff’s situational awareness.
  • As the senior 25S, I diligently maintained the Satellite Transportable Terminal (STT) for the Main Brigade Joint Network Node (JNN).
  • With close supervision and monitoring, I identified and resolved an outage caused by a faulty HSD card in a multiplexer, restoring operations within minutes.
  • I ensured the Satellite Transportable Terminal remained consistently maintained and operational, always ready for deployment.

CPN Operator/Maintainer

  • As a member of CPN team 79518 during the 12 CAB CPX, I ensured that the 412th ASB remained fully operational with minimal interruptions in data and voice services.
  • My meticulous attention to detail guaranteed the proper maintenance and readiness of all vehicles and communication equipment throughout the mission.
  • I actively pursued knowledge on my own equipment, including the JNN, ASIPS radios, and other Signal equipment, with the aim of enhancing mission efficiency in future operations.
