Patriot of the Week
Name and Rank: Airman 1st Class Mayson Kile
Duty Title: Aerospace medical technician
Duty Section: 66th Medical Squadron
Hometown: York, Pennsylvania
Why I serve: Everyone wants to make a difference and the Air Force was my way of doing that. The medical field has always been a passion of mine, every day I get to help real patients with real problems. Knowing that I’m contributing in making things easier for them and helping them heal through hard times, gives me a sense of purpose. I’m a part of something so much bigger than myself. Every day, this drives me to do the best that I can and always give 100 percent.
Best Air Force memory: My first official Memorial Day as an Airman this year, I was able to attend the Boston Red Sox game. During the game, I was a part of the flag detail ceremony. It was a very touching and remarkable experience for me to honor our service members who have sacrificed their lives for my ability to serve today.
Supervisors' comments: Airman 1st Class Mayson Kile is an amazing new addition to the 66th Medical Squadron’s Family Health Flight.
She provides care for up to 18 patients each day. Kile is a motivated Airman with aspirations of becoming a nurse through the Nursing Enlisted Commissioning Program, otherwise known as the NECP.
She is currently in upgrade training for her five-level certification and is striving to learn more everyday to be the best medic she can be. I believe she is an amazing asset to the clinic and has a bright future here in the U.S. Air Force. (Senior Airman Chad Stricker)
