The award citation reads: The professionalism, safety mindset, and quick thinking of the launch team prevented takeoff with an unsafe condition that could well have resulted in an inflight emergency. Their actions bring great credit to the 161st Aircraft Maintenance Squadron professionals, and reflect directly on the squadron crew chiefs’ culture of safety and attention to detail.
