Supervisor's comments:
"A1C Boudreau may be brand new to the Air Force but after an extremely fast break-in with the roughest and toughest crew in the far east, he has quickly become a rock star. In a job that has too many combined career fields to count, we usually have Airmen that are jack of all trades and masters of none. However, not A1C Boudreau, he has talent and experience exploding out his ears. He is my go-to guy on some very high dollar construction projects. With his wicked ingenuity and go-getter gumption, I know that I can count on him to take my direction and grab the bull by the horns. The base motto might be 'Fight Tonight' but that's not soon enough for this guy. His everyday battle attitude is BRING IT!" - Tech. Sgt. Gerald Bontrager, 35th CES structural craftsman.
