KIRTLAND AIR FORCE BASE, N.M. --
The new top enlisted advisor for Air Force Global Strike Command visited various units across the 377th Air Base Wing, June 13, 2019.
Chief Master Sgt. Charles Hoffman, Air Force Global Strike Command command chief, had the opportunity to hear from Airmen while learning about their mission.
“As the new AFGSC Command Chief, it’s important to not only see the mission first hand, but interact with the amazing Airmen who make it happen every day,” said Hoffman.
Senior Airman Norman Parks, 377th Mission Support Group Explosive Ordinance Disposal technician, used this time with the new command chief to explain how his unit contributes to the overall mission for both Team Kirtland and AFGSC.
“Chief Hoffman struck me as an enlisted leader who truly cares about his fellow Airmen all the way from the bottom to the top,” said Parks.
Hoffman said he was extremely proud of all the Airmen he interacted with and was very impressed with the professionalism they displayed. His message to all Airmen here was a reminder of the importance of how they impact the mission.
“What you do secures our nation’s greatest assets,” said Hoffman. “Both the people who train and deliver our combat edge and the minds that solve some really tough problems are what delivers our country’s competitive military advantage.”
Hoffman’s final piece of advice was one of having good fun and progressing as a person.
“Be better every day,” said Hoffman. “Don’t walk past a problem. Connect with each other and have fun on this amazing journey of service to our nation.”
