Wagner named top security civilian

KENTUCKY AIR NATIONAL GUARD BASE, LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- Senior Airman Windy Wagner, a security forces troop who serves as the 123rd Airlift Wing's full-time civilian security program manager, has been named the top security forces civilian in both the Air National Guard and the U.S. Air Force.

The awards, bestowed in 2008, recognize Airman Wagner's exceptional accomplishments in a wide range of essential activities, according to Chief Master Sgt. Dan Radke, base security forces manager.

These include providing superior service for the pass and vehicle registration section, which issued more than 1,200 decals during the evaluation period while keeping wait times under five minutes; outstanding supervision of the personnel security section, which expertly processed more than 170 security clearances in compliance with Air Force regulations; and proactive management of the information security program, which conducted 12 program reviews to ensure that classified accounts were being properly maintained.

Airman Wagner also contributed to the unit's being selected as the 2006 Air National Guard Outstanding Security Forces Squadron by excelling in her role as the organization's primary computer support administrator and by helping secure more than $780,000 in additional funding as the squadron resource adviser.

The money was used to purchase badly needed deployment gear and upgrades for the base alarm system, Chief Radke said.

Her other duties include serving as a functional area records manager, squadron computer security monitor, information technology equipment custodian, orderly room clerk and orders preparation clerk.

Airman Wagner is an active supporter of local youth baseball leagues and volunteers much of her spare time to Janet's Helpers, a civilian charitable organization dedicated to improving the lives of underprivileged Appalachian children.
