Senior Master Sgt. Samuel Cole, 62nd Operations Support Squadron superintendent, poses for a photo on Joint Base Lewis-McChord, Wash., Nov. 25, 2019. He was one of the nine McChord Airmen selected this year for promotion to chief master sergeant, the highest enlisted rank in the Air Force. “It is a huge honor and a privilege to be selected for this promotion and I intend to continue taking care of my people and aim toward affecting change. A good piece of mentorship that I received was to focus more on being effective and less on being right in most situations that you encounter. Chief master sergeant it is a great milestone and I will work hard to live up to the honor and take care of the Airmen of which I am charged.” (U.S. Air Force photo by Airman 1st Class Mikayla Heineck)
