SOUTHWEST ASIA -- This week’s Rock Solid Warrior is Tech. Sgt. Sheena Myers, the NCOIC of the aircraft parts store and flights service center with the 386th Expeditionary Logistics Readiness Squadron, deployed from Seymour Johnson Air Force Base, N.C. The Rock Solid Warrior program is a way to recognize and spotlight the Airmen of the 386th Air Expeditionary Wing for their positive impact and commitment to the mission.

What is your current job title and unit?

I am the NCOIC of the Aircraft Parts Store and the Flight Service Center of the 386 ELRS Material Management Flight.

Which squadron and base are you deployed from?

I am currently deployed from the 4 LRS at Seymour Johnson Air Force Base, NC.

Why did you join the Air Force?
I initially joined the Air Force to maintain a form of structure at a young age and to travel.

How is your deployed unit/job different from your home unit/job?

At my home station I work customer wervice from a desk, filling and answering customer requests, which can be difficult when you like to move around and get your hands dirty sometimes. Being here I get a chance to be more involved with the physical aspect of what my Airmen accomplish everyday while being materiel managers.

What are some of your professional and personal goals?
My professional goals right now are to complete SNCOA DL and study in order to make master sergeant my first time testing next year. My personal goals are to just strive to be a better person than I was yesterday, especially for those that I love and are close to me.

What is your favorite part of your mission here?

My favorite part of the mission here is being able to see the bigger mission. Sometimes at home station you don’t always get to see the impact of your work. Being here reigns in that perspective and makes it easier to relay to those younger Airmen at home that don’t quite understand it all, just yet.

What are some of your hobbies?
I love spending time with my family, traveling, exploring and cooking. With traveling I have also grown to love trying new foods and cultures.

What are some of the challenges you face here? How do you overcome them?

One of the biggest challenges that I face here is keeping myself motivated to keep pushing through the projects that we have on our plate to leave the work center in a better condition than we received it. I overcome this challenge by knowing that my Airmen are watching me and I am setting the example for them.
