    ROBINS AIR FORCE BASE, Ga.— The Air National Guard’s 13th Command Chief, Chief Master Sgt. Maurice Williams, visited the DoD’s only Joint STARS unit, the Georgia Air National Guard’s 116th Air Control Wing, during a unit training assembly May 2.

    During his first visit to the wing, he was briefed on the 116th’s unique mission by wing leadership, toured units and spoke with Airmen throughout the wing, and recognized several superior performers.

    One of the Airmen Chief Williams recognized was Staff Sgt. Danoim Ghebremichael, a military pay technician with the 116th Comptroller Flight.

    “It felt humbling and motivating being recognized by Chief Williams,” Ghebremichael said. “Hearing about what the chief has accomplished and the milestones in his career, gave me a good goalpost of what I need to do to achieve my goals.”

    Towards the end of his visit, Williams conducted a town hall for enlisted members. He shared leadership priorities starting at the Air Force Chief of Staff level down to his own three focus areas for the force: ready forces, people, and health of the force.

    In his final words of wisdom to the Airmen, Williams shared his own four M’s for a successful organization: model, mentorship, motivate, and multiply.

    “Each one of you has skills and gifts, but you have to identify what that skill and gift is and operate and dominate in that gift,” Williams said. “You have to give that gift to someone else. That’s what mentorship is.”

    The 116th, along with the active-duty 461st ACW, and Army JSTARS, makes up Team JSTARS which provides geographic combatant commanders around the world with on-call battle management, command and control, intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance support, commonly referred to as C2ISR.
