Supervisor's comments:
"Hassey is a motivated Airman. He is always willing to help out where needed and teach his peers different aspects of the job. He is a well-rounded, humble and down-to-earth individual. Hassey works really hard and does his job very well but doesn't like to be in the spotlight or get recognized for his hard work. Being Wild Weasel of the Week is an opportunity for Hassey to get recognized and know the unit appreciates all the dedication he has put into the mission here at Misawa AB. He is one of the very few Airmen 1st Classes' that we have hold the alarm monitor certification and will be missed when he moves to Andrews Air Force Base, Maryland, where I know he will achieve great things and continue to be an huge asset to every unit he is a part of." - Staff Sgt. Kellie Jones, 35 SFS flight sergeant.
