173rd Fighter Wing Non-Commissioned Officer of the Year - Staff Sergeant Derik Trumbull

In 2015, Trumbull helped overcome a 33-percent manpower shortage in his section by working both the inspection and maintenance elements. He inspected 37,000 lbs. of spent munitions residue rendering material safe for DLA resale, directly resulting in recycling earnings of $18,173 for base moral, welfare, and recreation. Trumbull successfully integrated the first active duty munitions inspector at Kingsley Field, resulting in a 273 line-item product increase. Trumbull is highly motivated NCO on and off duty; he is currently enrolled in Chemekta Community College and the Community College of the Air Force where he is pursuing two degrees in Securing Munitions and Nursing Technology. He is also a fitness leader, scoring five consecutive scores of 100-percent and mentoring 22 individuals resulting in a 90-percent workplace fitness readiness. Trumbull dedicates 22 hours a month to the Klamath County Sheriff’s Office for patrol duties.
