AMXS Airman receives Chief's Choice Award

U.S. Air Force Airman 1st Class Austin King, an instrument and flight control systems journeyman assigned to the 509th Aircraft Maintenance Squadron, receives a Chief’s Choice award at Whiteman Air Force Base, Mo., March 11, 2016. During the first ever, no-notice operational readiness exercise at Whiteman, King helped repair a landing gear conduit by replacing a 50-pin connector, which led to generating aircraft 11 hours under the standard time for Air Force Global Strike Command. During the past year, he also volunteered over 100 hours through opportunities like collecting 1,000 pounds of trash and debris through the Adopt-A-Highway program and coordinating three fundraising events as the dorm council president.
