Air Force Reserve officer retires, cited for work

Gen. Maryanne Miller, the commander of Air Mobility Command at Scott Air Force Base, made a special coin presentation to Air Force Reserve member Senior Master Sgt. Todd Wadkins at the 932nd Airlift Wing for his consistent hard work and assistance during a recent full spectrum readiness inspection this fall.

The men and women of AMC, consisting of active duty, Air National Guard, Air Force Reserve and civilians, provide airlift, aerial refueling, special air mission, aeromedical evacuation and mobility support.

Wadkins worked recently with maintenance and formerly served as the 932nd Airlift Wing’s ground safety manager and is retiring after 30 years of military service to America.

“I will miss the people…this place has been my ‘work family’ for a long time. There are so many good people in the 932nd Airlift Wing that I have cried with, laughed with, shared sorrow and joy. I have learned from them, mentored a few and stood in awe at the dedication and work ethic of many,” Wadkins said.

The 932nd Airlift Wing is an Air Force Reserve Command C-40C flying wing made up reservists training in the Mission Support Group, Medical Group, Operations Group, and Maintenance Group located at Scott Air Force Base, Ill.
