Three enlisted Airmen from the 507th Air Refueling Wing were named quarterly award winners for the first quarter of 2010.
Senior Airman Gregory Green from the 507th Maintenance Squadron took home the Airman of the Quarter award. Tech. Sgt. Elizabeth Condon of the 35th Combat Communications Squadron was named the Non-Commissioned Officer of the Quarter. And Master Sgt. Timothy Parker of the 72nd Aerial Port Squadron earned Senior Non-Commissioned Officer of the Quarter accolades.
Senior Airman Green is an aircraft maintenance technician, achieving a 100 percent pass rate on aircraft quality assurance inspections since he arrived at the 507th in March 2009.

Green finished his 5-level Career Development Courses in only four months, eight months ahead of the standard, with an 86% final score.

Tech. Sgt. Condon is a cyber transport systems craftsman, rated "Excellent" by two different MAJCOMs in her primary duties.

In addition, Parker led his unit's inspection of the Logistics Standardization and Evaluation Program for Material Handling Equipment, leading to zero write-ups from 4th Air Force.
