A typical day of work would consist of a morning meeting where I would give my squadron supervision a run down of what airplanes are fixed and what it took to make the aircraft air worthy. Also I would get a briefing on any aircraft that required maintenance. I then would take this information to my specialist section and delegate the work. Throughout the day I would make my rounds and check the status of the work as well as perform a thorough inspection of the maintenance completed to fix the aircraft. Throughout the day I also would also perform computer based inspections on all of the personnel I supervised, using various computer programs. In this I learned how to become a leader, follower, mediator, mentor, and critical thinker. The most difficult part of my job is always having to leave my family anywhere from months to years. The most enjoyable part of my job is knowing that I am protecting what I love, my country, family and friends.
