What others are saying about this week's Fairchild Finest:
"Airman 1st Class 'The Real Deal' Creal epitomizes what we want in a young Airman; positive attitude, strong work ethic and willingness to help out where needed," said Master Sgt. Lee Adkins, 93rd ARS operations superintendent. "I would take a squadron full of A1C Creals if I could. She means that much to the 93rd ARS. The sky is the limit for this young troop and it's an honor to nominate her as one of Fairchild's Finest."
