McChord Chief Master Sergeant Selects for 2019
Senior Master Sgt. Chad Rosendale, 22nd Special Tactics Squadron operations superintendent, poses for a photo on Joint Base Lewis-McChord, Wash., Nov. 26, 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. “I am both humbled and blessed for the promotion to chief. In my opinion, this promotion means a culmination of an entire career, the path taken, and the lessons learned coupled with the opportunity to make an everlasting impact within the organization you are a part of. It is an opportunity to see an organizations vision come to fruition. More importantly, it is an opportunity to give back to the people who make that vision happen. The best advice I ever received was to make my career more about the people around me. I have found, in my experience, that this truth tends to resonate with people more, causing them to go above and beyond what they would consider average. It is our responsibility to generate a culture of performance that is spiritually grounded, morally proven, technically proficient, and physically ready to defend this great nation.” (U.S. Air Force photo by Airman 1st Class Mikayla Heineck)
