Reserve Citizen Airman Senior Airman Genevieve Gaylor, 924th Maintenance Squadron, was awarded the 944th Fighter Wing Airman of the Year for 2021. In 2021, Gaylor tested 95 missiles, which led to $18M in increased combat readiness for 110 Active Duty, Air National Guard and Air Force Reserve Component pilots. For her work, she was coined by 924th Fighter Group Command Chief. Gaylor vetted 48 pilot reported discrepancies and oversaw 76 evaluations with 25 missiles overhauled, with a 94% fully mission capable rate that saved the 944th $2.2M in replacement costs. Gaylor renewed $3.5M in equipment when she trained eight Airmen and repaired six test sets, coordinated three emergency calibrations, and eliminated a seven month backlog. On top of completing the above tasks, Gaylor completed a field training detachment missile course, Airman Leadership School, and two personal development classes and utilized the skills as a liaison for a total force integration working group. For all of her work she was coined by the ALS Commandant. She also served as the 924 Fighter Group Airman Counsel President and organized four resiliency and financial briefs that empowered Command Chief Master Sgt’s vision for Airman mentorship for 150 personnel.
