Why I serve: I serve to help in any way I can to support the defenders of our country who protect my freedoms every day.

Best Air Force memory: Being the spouse of a retired U.S. Air Force master sergeant, I have had the honor to meet a number of exceptional military families through the years. One of my most cherished memories came right after the 9/11 attacks when I attended a fundraiser for the victims. There were hundreds of military families attending this fundraiser and everyone joined together in prayer and song to help comfort one another. It was an emotional and touching experience, one that I will never forget.

Supervisors comments: Adeline Morris came to us from the Hanscom Housing Office. She now works in the Supplier Support department where she is responsible for processing the payments of 40 contractors and more than 700 commercial carriers. Adeline’s dedication ensuring payments to the agents and contractors that have provided service for our military and employee families is unsurpassed. Recently she innovated a new way of doing business with processing payments, simplifying the process. This was such a success the rest of the Air Force Personal Property Enterprise adopted it as a best practice. Adeline epitomizes our mission statement: “Total force patriots, engaging in each others lives….”  We are lucky to have her on our team. (Rhyanne Hudson)
