When Tech. Sgt. Holly Groves is on the job, many lives depend on her attention to detail.
Sergeant Groves is the Tower Watch Supervisor with the 43rd Operations Support Squadron, where she once worked as a trainer for OSS air traffic controllers. 

Before her recent deployment to Balad, Sergeant Groves was the NCO-in-Charge of Air Traffic Control Training and Standardization at Pope. Working with a handful of assistants, she headed up the training program for controllers and held the overall responsibility of ensuring air traffic control at Pope went off without a hitch. 

Sergeant Groves' hard work with the training program earned her the 2008 Air Mobility Command Air Traffic Control Training Achievement Award. She was notified of her award when she was deployed to Balad as the Tower Crew Chief.
