LAUGHLIN AIR FORCE BASE, Texas --

Unit and job title: 47th Force Support Squadron reenlistments and extensions technician

Why he XLed:  Senior Airman Michael Lindsay, 47th Force Support Squadron reenlistments and extensions technician, screened 86 reenlistment and extension contracts, avoiding three potential “no pay” cases and dropping his shop’s error rate by 95 percent. Lindsay coordinated his unit’s physical fitness schedule after completing PTL training, improving the wellness for his wingmen. He revised Laughlin’s LeaveWeb and below-the-zone promotion supplements, writing up procedure guidelines that helped wing policy compliance. Lindsay gave back to the community by leading 12 volunteers for an orphanage drive, coordinating with three wing agencies, advocating local ties. Lindsay also corrected 138 potential date of separation and expiration term of service cases, and was recognized by Air Force Personnel Center for not having a single mismatch.
