7/18/2011 - WHITEMAN AIR FORCE BASE, Mo. -- Tech. Sgt. Karin Moore is the vehicle management and analysis technician for the 442nd Logistics Readiness Squadron. She is also employed in the same role as a civilian for the 509th Bomb Wing.
She is charged with the management of 720 Air Force vehicles valued in excess of $35 million, assigned to the 509th BW and 442nd Fighter Wing. In this role, she has led challenges of mandatory contracts requiring vehicle maintenance to purchase all supply-listed tires through the Defense Logistics Agency, which has led to improved vehicle out-of-commission rates and resulted in more than $29,000 in annual savings.
Sergeant Moore was selected as a member of the Air Combat Command Inspector General team as a result of her superior knowledge, skill and abilities.
She recently inspected 126 nuclear-certified vehicles assigned to Whiteman AFB and reviewed all documentation resulting in the unit passing the Air Force Global Strike Command Nuclear Surety Inspection on the first attempt - the first host vehicle maintenance to pass the inspection with zero findings or discrepancies. Sergeant Moore's professionalism and dedication to detail has resulted in laudatory comments from multiple visitors and inspection teams.
She is the consummate Citizen Airman and her appearance, attitude and accomplishments make her this month's Tip of the Spear for the 442nd Mission Support Group.
