Senior Airman Britney Hammergren, 36th Wing Command Post senior controller,  was awarded Andersen's Best here Dec. 9.

Airman Hammergren was recognized as one of the top controllers and certified as a senior controller, a position normally held by Non-commissioned officers, but occasionally filled by the most trusted and experienced senior airman.

"I nominated Senior Airman Hammergren for Andersen's Best, because she has made vast improvements in the past several months and I wanted to let her know that it's recognized," explained her supervisor, Staff Sgt. Bryan Rodvold.

"While deployed she accomplished so much, both personally and professionally. She lost more than 30 pounds and after returning to Andersen, she increased her fitness assessment score by 10 percent. Additionally she received two notable recognitions, Airman of the Month and Rock Solid Warrior," Sergeant Rodvold added.

More recently, Airman Hammergren volunteered for a short notice support tasking through the 36th Contingency Response Group and was coined for her response and excellent support.

"She did such a good job, she's being submitted for a Navy Achievement Medal," explained Maj. John Himes, 36th Mobility Response Squadron director of operations.

"On top of her busy schedule she still finds time to volunteer for things like gift wrapping presents and putting together care packages to send to our deployed members," said Sergeant Rodvold. 

Airman Hammergren is very involved with Andersen and the local community, donating through the Combined Federal Campaign, playing intramural soccer with the 644th Combat Communications Squadron and playing soccer with the more competitive team, the Lady Bombers.

"Basically she's the Rambo of the Command Post," Sergeant Rodvold concluded.

For her outstanding performance, dedication, commitment to excellence and actions above and beyond expectations, the 36th Wing Command Post and wing leadership dub her Andersen's Best.

Andersen's Best is a recognition program which highlights a top performer from the 36th Wing. Each week, supervisors nominate a member of their team for outstanding performance and the wing commander presents the selected Airman with an award.
