The Air Force announced its newest master sergeant selects May 19 – and the list includes almost 70 names from Wright-Patterson Air Force Base.

This year, a total of 4,676 technical sergeants were picked for promotion across the Air Force, a competitive selection rate of 18.91%.

“Today is a special day,” said Col. Patrick Miller, 88th Air Base Wing and installation commander. “Wright-Patterson is home to many of these extraordinary leaders who achieved the rank of master sergeant. This is a significant milestone in their careers. I cannot wait to see each of them sew on the new rank in the coming months, and more importantly, thrive in this new echelon of leadership.

“Also, a huge thanks to the supervisors, mentors, peers and family members who have forged these Airmen into who they are today. I appreciate your service and sacrifice. Now, keep challenging them. They are up to the task.”

Lt. Gen. Shaun Q. Morris, the Air Force Life Cycle Management Center commander, says Wright-Patterson AFB continues to grow strong leaders dedicated to service, the mission and team.

“Becoming a senior NCO is a significant milestone,” he said. “We know these professionals are prepared to lead at the next level.”
