Patriot of the Week



Patriot of the Week

Name and Rank: John Wallace

Duty Title: Transportation assistant

Duty Section: Joint Personal Property Shipping Office

Hometown: El Paso, Texas

Current Duty Station and Date Arrived: Hanscom Air Force Base, Massachusetts, June 2016

Why I serve: I serve those who put their lives on the line for our freedom.

Best Air Force memory: When I came home from my last tour in Afghanistan. I surprised my children at their school for my return back home. The school contacted the local TV station and newspaper. That event in my life is something I will always cherish. My children’s reactions were priceless and something I will never forget.

Supervisors comments: John Wallace is dedicated to duty and continues to help where needed during our most crucial times. He is part of a three-man documentation team that collects all pertaining documents relating to all household goods moves for more than 20 states. He audits commercial documents to validate Department of Defense receipt of personal property shipping services valued in excess of $134 million annually. His diligence has not only afforded prompt payment to providers mitigating interest fees, but ensured documentation accuracy for service members’ move entitlements. (Daniel Cormier)
