    When SABC Training Becomes a Passion
    by Staff Sgt. Andrew Fox, 4th Combat Camera Squadron
    JOINT BASE CHARLESTON, S.C. –
    Technical Sergeant David Munton, NCOIC Warrior Operational Medical Clinic, 628th Medical Group looks forward to instructing classes and teaching Airmen at Joint Base Charleston. The 628th Medical Group trains the base’s active duty and Reserve Airmen for their Self-Aid Buddy Care (SABC) hands-on readiness requirement. Working in the office provides a fulfilling career treating patients; however, despite training being Munton’s additional, it is his passion. Munton instructed SABC and other medical hands-on classes when he first arrived at Joint Base Charleston in 2004. Munton said, “The reason I like getting out of the office and teaching people, is it allows me to be a little more relaxed and have fun with work.” SABC is the main hands-on class Munton teaches, but other classes include CPR and EMT training for individuals as needed.
    Tech. Sgt. Munton is active duty Air Force, but he instructs the Air Force Reserve Airmen on drill weekends. “Meeting the same requirements as active duty Air Force is a must, and the Reserve Airmen have to do it on the weekend they are here. I don’t mind coming on a Saturday to help out,” said Munton. He explained how meeting people from all over the country when teaching on Reserve weekends, and working with active duty Airmen who perform various jobs during the week provides a different perspective when teaching training classes. Teaching classes allows for more freedom than a desk job by using creative ways to instruct Airmen in the readiness training most of them have accomplished before. Munton said, “Using different techniques like humor and real-world stories, helps me relax and people learn better.” Active Duty comes to JB Charleston almost every day, but most reservists go back to their jobs off of a military instillation, making this training helpful for someone in the civilian world.
    JB Charleston is home to both active duty and reserve units with many different jobs and missions, but the readiness requirements are the same. Tech. Sgt. Munton is an example of different Air Force components relying on each other to accomplish the mission.
