Each week Col. James Johnson, 43rd Airlift Wing Commander, highlights an outstanding Airman Colonel Johnson presented a Commander's Coin to Staff Sgt. Kelly Berger, 2nd Airlift Squadron, for her exceptional performance beyond the call of duty. Sergeant Berger is a member of the Commander's Support Staff and is responsible for squadron enlisted performance reports. Prior to working at the 2nd AS, she worked at the 43rd Maintenance Squadron and 43rd Mission Support Squadron. Sergeant Berger was the driving force behind her squadron's transition to Electronic Workflow Processing. The process provides a standardized system for routing reports through raters and will soon be implemented across the Air Force. Her work significantly decreased wait time, minimized lost documents and improved customer satisfaction for report processing. Off duty, Sergeant Berger was the President of the Squadron Booster Club (the Maintenance Activity Council). She also completed an associate's degree from Central Texas and her Community College of the Air Force degree in information management in 2008. She is currently attending Fayetteville State University part-time to obtain her Bachelor of Science degree in middle grade special education. She has been married for six years to Army Staff Sgt. Jeremiah Berger. They have a 3-year-old son, Camden, and a new arrival due Jan. 4. They have been stationed together at Bragg/Pope since 2004.
