Number of months in position – 12
Distinguished by meritorious service as Chief Enlisted Manager, Intelligence Directorate, United States Air Forces Central Command, Al Udeid Air Base, Qatar while supporting aerial and ground operations against the enemy from 29 September 2011 to 20 September 2012.

During this period, in support of Operations ENDURING FREEDOM and NEW DAWN, served as the United States Central Command Air Forces’ senior intelligence enlisted leader. He seamlessly integrated over 1,800 Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (ISR) Airmen encompassing 13 Air Force specialties into 61 locations in four joint operating areas spanning 12 countries. Also directly supported combat operations by focusing the Combined Forces Air Component Commander’s (CFACC) primary intelligence lines of effort comprised of ISR capabilities planning, special security, foreign disclosure, systems support, geospatial product distribution and manpower requirements towards establishing timely, persistent, and relevant ISR on behalf of deployed personnel throughout the theater. Under  leadership, the largest ISR armada in history was brought to bear and sustained in support of ground combat operations, delivering over 36,850 ISR sorties to battlespace owners in Afghanistan and Iraq, and supporting defensive operations in the Arabian Gulf and Horn of Africa. This formidable capability resulted in over 300 insurgents captured or killed and dozens of weapons caches found and destroyed. With little regard for his own safety and under several occasions of indirect hostile fire, he executed extensive battlefield visits into Afghanistan. Throughout these circulations, met with ISR Airmen and battlefield commanders to ensure CFACC ISR was effectively meeting the ground commander’s intent. These visits allowed to help formulate the overall strategy to converge MC-12W (Project Liberty), U-21 (Blue Devil) and MQ-9 (Gorgon Stare) analytical cells into a single forward-based intelligence squadron. Efforts ultimately ensured that near real time imagery and signals intelligence products were delivered to ground commanders and troops-in-contact throughout Afghanistan. Also instrumental in planning and executing the closure of the legacy MC-12W line-of-sight data transmission architecture, enabling an immediate reduction of 31 ISR analysts and meeting the Commander-in-Chief’s goal of initial troop strength reduction by September 2012. This ISR drawdown provided the Commander, 9th Air Expeditionary Task Force-Afghanistan with the ability to retain a greater offensive capability to support combat maneuver units throughout the combined joint operations area. Played a vital role in the historic deployment of the MQ-1 (ACES HY), the upgraded MC-12W, and several other enduring CFACC ISR capabilities. These systems offered revolutionary tools to Afghanistan’s battlespace owners by changing the method in how we execute the find, fix and finish operations within high threat areas such as Regional Commands-Southwest, South, and East. Went to great lengths to normalize and improve the highly successful CFACC ISR Liaison Officer (ISRLO) program which embeds Air Force ISR subject matter experts at the operational ground unit level. Visited downrange multiple times to interview and observe ISRLOs in action ensured documentation of tactics, techniques and procedures which positively impacted the quality of pre-deployment training and provided continuity of operations. Ensured the liaison officers were organized, trained and equipped for maximum effectiveness within the Expeditionary Air Support Operations Group providing the battlespace owners ISR expertise directly integrated into the combat commander’s scheme of maneuver. Finally, in direct support of the Iraq transition, drove the development of the plan to analyze over 1,200 MC-12W Project Liberty missions from Contiguous United States-based exploitation ground stations as in-theater intelligence units withdrew from Iraq. Created plan to provide essential intelligence to the remaining maneuver units and facilitated the safe withdrawal of all combat forces from Iraq by the 31 December 2011 Presidential deadline.
