CWO / Adjuc Shawn Mailer

I happen to recall a young Cpl Mailer working with a Lt Martin back a few years ago in 8ACCS (or possibly ATCCU at the time), guiding the Lt to tasks commensurate with being the new OJT and deploying to tropical locations such as Alert. I wish you the best in your new career, and appreciate the lighthearted outlook towards the sometime burdensome tasks that came our way. Congratulations on your retirement.
