This is what a great leadership looks like.
Col J.C. Millard is the commander of the 89th Airlift Wing at Andrews Air Force Base near Washington DC. His wing is home to Air Force One, the VC-25, along with the C-32, C-37, C-40 and other aircraft that fly VIP personnel. Recently, he went to a support squadron to recognize one of his high-performing airmen by presenting a coin. It is an Air Force tradition to present a coin to a subordinate as a way to recognize outstanding performance. After Col Millard spoke of SSgt Banks’ hard work to the assembled crowd, he reached in his pocket to give him a coin. Only Col Millard’s pockets were empty. SSgt Banks is stunned by what happens next…
Col. J.C. Millard goes out to coin a SSgt, yet forgets to bring along a coin …… see what happens next.
