The Regular Active Duty Air Force promotion system promotes the best-qualified noncommissioned officers and senior noncommissioned officers based on the quality of their records while recognizing each individual Airman’s potential for advancement to the next rank.

Out of the 20 eligible Technical Sergeants assigned to the 367th FS at HARB, three were selected for promotion. Below are our newest Master Sergeant selects:

  • Master Sgt. select Patrick, Samuel arrived in December 2018. He was selected for his expertise in managing a flight and jumped right in as an Aircraft Weapons Loading Element, noncommissioned officer in charge. He has had a 14-year career in the Air Force and looking to further lead and guide our Total Force Initiative team here at HARB.
  • Master Sgt. select Misty Lowe arrived in September 2018 and works as a Munitions Control, NCOIC. She has had a career spanning 18-years involving multiple locations and hardships but always working through them developing herself and her Airmen. Lowe will continue this with her increased responsibility bringing out the absolute best in the AMMO team she works with and sharing her leadership abilities with the members of the 482nd Fighter Wing.
  • Master Sgt. select Joshua Roundtree arrived in November 2019 and selected as a Senior Munitions Inspector due to his long and knowledgeable career spanning multiple overseas locations and expertise in munitions build up, inspection and handling. His long 19-year career and wealth of knowledge will only strengthen the Homestead family.

For RegAF enlisted personnel to be selected to the top tier in the United States Air Force, a three member panel board usually consisting of a Colonel and two Chief Master Sgts., must give their "seal of approval" based of stringent criteria. The panel examines the promotion records (last five years of evaluations, all awards and decorations) and scores by considering performance, professional competence, leadership, job responsibility, breadth of experience, specific achievements, and education.

Congratulations to them all!
