Supervisor's comments:
"I selected Senior Airman Donald Harris because his performance on and off duty is outstanding.  Despite our manning shortfall, Harris has stepped up without hesitation to make sure all duties get accomplished accurately and in a timely manner.  He's proven to be a great asset to the 14th FS.  Outside work, he puts effort into his studies pursuing his bachelor's degree.  I truly believe he deserves this recognition," said Master Sgt.
