Twenty maintainers from the 49th Aircraft Maintenance Squadron were officially recognized as Dedicated Crew Chiefs in a ceremony, Nov. 18, 2022.
The title of Dedicated Crew is reserved for those who display the initiative, management, and leadership ability necessary to maintain an aircraft in combat ready status. 
The DCC’s technical knowledge is above reproach and the resource most counted upon to ensure a fighter wing’s combat readiness.
“When you put in a lot of work, several years, all hours, all the maintenance tasks, it feels good to be recognized,” said U.S. Air Force Senior Airman Alejandro Thompson, 29th Aircraft Maintenance Unit Dedicated Crew Chief.
