419th Fighter Wing Photos


Senior Airman Lance Cressall, 419th Security Forces Squadron, was named Outstanding Airman of the Year at the Team Hill Annual Awards ceremony Apr. 1. The win comes on the heels of his being named the 419th Fighter Wing’s Outstanding Airman of the Year in February. Airman Cressall voluntarily deployed to Kirkuk Regional Air Base, Iraq, in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom. His vigilance on patrols rapidly detected, repelled, and destroyed opposing forces, improving safety of the base mission. He served as a security forces mobile fire team member to seven indirect fire incidents, enhancing the force protection of the base's mission capabilities. Airman Cressall performed 50 aggressive defensive patrols with zero unauthorized base entries and zero hostile insurgent operations. In June, Airman Cressall will represent the wing’s enlisted personnel at a Military Salute Banquet in Salt Lake City during Air Force Week.
