McChord Chief Master Sgt. Selects for 2019
Senior Master Sgt. Fred King, 1st Weather Squadron superintendent, poses for a photo on Joint Base Lewis-McChord, Wash., Dec. 4, 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. “Promoting to chief master sergeant affords me the continued opportunity to serve Airmen and affect changes that improve when needed and sustain when successful. Always take care of the people around you. Arm them with knowledge, position them for success, and empower them. Then get out of their way and let them crush their mission. One word: honesty. We have to be honest with the people in our lives, to include ourselves, at all times. We only communicate effectively if we communicate honestly, especially during difficult or challenging times.” (U.S. Air Force photo by Airman 1st Class Mikayla Heineck)
