Area Senior Airman awarded Air Force Achievement Medal

GOODFELLOW AIR FORCE BASE, Texas — Senior Airman Dylan R. Newbrough distinguished himself by meritorious service as Installation Patrol, 17th Security Forces Squadron, 17th Mission Support Group, 17th Training Wing, Goodfellow Air Force Base, Texas.

During this period, Airman Newbrough was first on-scene to a carbon monoxide poisoning in family housing. With disregard to his own safety, he evacuated and treated all occupants averting loss of lives. Additionally, he led two driving under the influence incidents. His textbook field sobriety testing facilitated the conviction of two offenders and ensured the safety of roadways for over 100,000 military and civilian personnel. Further, while attending the Fort Bliss Regional Training Center, Airman Newbrough’s unrivaled leadership in field training exercises prompted his squad’s selection as the Staff Sergeant John T. Self Top Squad. Finally, Airman Newbrough’s unwavering professionalism and altruistic endeavors drove his selection as 17th Mission Support Group Volunteer of the Quarter and his unit’s selection as the 2013 Air Force Security Forces Small Unit of the Year.

The distinctive accomplishments of Airman Newbrough reflect credit upon himself and the United States Air Force.
