    SELFRIDGE AIR NATIONAL GUARD BASE, Mich.— Brig. Gen. Rolf E. Mammen gave his troops their marching orders this weekend when he officially released his 2020 commander priorities during the annual Wing address on Dec. 8, 2019.

    The Wing commander of both the 127th Wing and Selfridge Air National Guard Base said that all members will focus on readiness, people and organizational culture in the coming year. While the first two are sustaining goals that will always be a focus, Mammen said that the known power of the Air Force is a deterrent to our adversaries.

    “Our readiness, is war fighting excellence and our capacity,” Mammen said in reference to the first priority. "Our deterrence is equal to our capacity times our will, as seen in the eyes and hearts of our adversaries."

    Continuing the operational tempo of recent years, more than 500 Airmen of the 127th Wing deployed around the world in 2019. The most recent group deployed in October, sending 21 members of the 127th Mission Support Group overseas.

    According to Mammen, the priority focus on readiness can't be achieved without a well-defined organizational culture.

    “Without properly mentored, trained and equipped people, we can’t achieve warfighting excellence.” Mammen said. “We can’t do any of this without a culture that values excellence, integrity and service.”

    Mammen has spent time steeping himself in the results of a recent climate survey conducted Wing-wide to meet an Air Force equal opportunity requirement for the new commander. The survey questions help leadership paint a picture of the emotional and social wellbeing of Airmen, asking questions about how members view their futures, overall outlook on their lives and the sense of community and connectedness they have in work and at home.

    “Our culture must value the inclusion of every Airman,,” Mammen said. "Ultimately, culture is about being that workplace of choice."

    Before handing over the floor to begin the annual Wing awards ceremony, Mammen expressed gratitude to his troops, acknowledging the tough environment they navigate on a daily basis.

    “I'm always amazed at the operations tempo that you sustain and you maintain and this year it has been absolutely crushing,” Mammen said. “ I appreciate everything you do and I appreciate your sacrifices for our community and our nation.”
