Niagara Falls Reserve Station -- Chief Master Sgt. Christopher Muncy, Air National Guard Command Chief, visited the 107th Airlift Wing on May 8th and 9th. His visit included meeting with senior leadership, touring the Air Reserve Station, hosting a Town Hall Meeting for the Wing and speaking with the Junior Enlisted Council.
The Chief represents the highest level of enlisted leadership for the Air National Guard. He is responsible for the interest regarding welfare, readiness, morale, proper utilization and progress concerning the enlisted personnel of the Air National Guard. He works for the Director of the Air National Guard Lt. Gen. Harry M. Wyatt III at the National Guard Bureau, Washington, DC.
"I want to know what issues the airmen are having here at Niagara." said Muncy
At the town hall meeting Chief Muncy pushed for the 107th members to tell their story. Only two percent of the United States population serves in the military. "Your community needs to know what you are doing," said Muncy. "The 107th Airlift Wing has and still is doing their part in protecting the state and nation and currently has members deployed to Afghanistan and other parts of the world."
He addressed our Air Reserve Component Association with the 914th Airlift Wing, Air Force Reserve and recognized it as a benchmark for future associations.
"Y'all have an amazing Wing and resilient Airmen. That's because it has great leaders showing the way." said Muncy
"It's great to have the command chief here to let us know what's the plan for our future and changes going on with the guard." said Col. Jim McCready 107th Airlift Wing Commander.
Chief Muncy ended the day at the 107th with the Junior Enlisted Council (JEC). The council briefed him on what they are doing for the members of the 107th. They provide professional development information to help on promotions, education, retirements and employment opportunities.
"The 107th Airlift Wing has very professional airmen doing their part in serving this nation." said Muncy. "They have skills and expertise to handle any task and mission given to them."
