CMSAF visits 90th MW Airmen

Chief Master Sgt. of the Air Force JoAnne S. Bass, Alex Wagner, assistant secretary of the Air Force special duty manager for Manpower and Reserve Affairs and Chief Master Sgt. Nathaniel Perry, Air Force first sergeant special duty manager, visited F.E. Warren Air Force Base, March 16.

The purpose of Bass’ visit was to meet and engage with Airmen to learn how her position can best help members of the 90th Missile Wing.

“It is really important to hear what our Airmen are experiencing and being challenged by,” Bass said. “Without firsthand experiences I get by meeting Airmen, I can’t be the advocate I need to be for them in the Pentagon.”

Airmen from the 20th Air Force, 90th MW and 153rd Airlift Wing were given an opportunity to hear directly from Bass and Wagner during an all-call. They spoke about challenges surrounding basic allowance for housing, growing concerns regarding adversaries and cyberspace and information domains. Following their brief, Bass and Wagner fielded questions from attendees. They were asked about bereavement leave, talent management and how social media is impacting the force and the country.

Following the all-call, Bass held a lunch with junior enlisted Airmen from each group on base, then toured the base exchange and commissary. She visited Airman Leadership School to provide mentorship to the next generation of leaders and supervisors, as well as the 90th Missile Security Operation Squadron vehicle bay. At the vehicle bay, Airmen from missile and base security forces, tactical response force, small unmanned aircraft systems and missile maintenance displayed their skills.
