KIRTLAND AIR FORCE BASE, N.M. --

U.S. Air Force Senior Airman Kendell Carver, 377th Maintenance Squadron Munitions Operations technician, is this month’s Diamond Sharp award winner. Carver was chosen for the award after showing his leadership that not only can he excel in his job but by also personifying the whole Airmen concept.

Carver, who was also recently awarded Senior Airman Below the Zone, proved that he can work above and beyond his rank by filling in as NCO in charge of munitions systems. During this period as acting NCOIC, he assisted the base munitions accountable systems officer while implementing management controls, recording munitions transactions, managing munitions allocations, directing munitions inventories and leading the logistics section. 

In addition to shining in the AMMO world, Carver sought out and completed an eight-hour Comprehensive Airman Fitness Course, later leading the briefing of the “four pillars of fitness” curriculum for the seventeen Airmen in the Munitions Flight.
