“We are responsible for everything a pilot wears and uses during flight and it’s our mission to make sure that gear works as intended 100% of the time,” said Hayes.

Warrior of the Week is a competitive recognition program that highlights significant contributions made by individual Airmen who raise the Red Tail standard and enhance the mission and capabilities of the 332d Air Expeditionary Wing.

“Being chosen as the Warrior of the Week has shown me that my teammates believe in me and trust me to get the job done, but I couldn’t do what I do on a daily basis without their support and overall dedication to this job,” she said.
