Senior Airman Andrew Long, 36th Medical Group (MDG) aerospace medical technician, was awarded Team Andersen’s Best on Andersen Air Force Base Aug. 16.

“Airman Long instructed 17 basic life support classes (in) the course of six months to ensure patient care was not hindered by non-compliance,” said Tech. Sgt. Zachary Pettis, 36th MDG noncommissioned officer in charge of education and training, basic life support program administrator and Long’s supervisor. “As a result of his efforts, 21 staff members were recertified with no lapse in patient care.”

While managing $10,000 worth of sterile instruments, Long recognized the need for a process improvement. He constructed a guide book for packaging sterile instruments and minor procedure kits, which led to a decreased amount of wasted supplies and instrument turn-around time.

“As president of the 36th MDG First Four, Airman Long coordinated four local community volunteer opportunities and assured the repair of the dormitory water heater, which greatly enhanced quality of life for dorm residents,” said Staff Sgt. Rosalinda Mateo, 36th MDG noncommisioned officer in charge of women’s health and pediatrics.

Long participated in the 36th MDG soccer team and enjoys sports in his free time. He also speaks some Cambodian and recently traveled to Cambodia and Thailand.

Team 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 or civilian with an award.

To nominate your Airmen or civilian for Team Andersen’s Best, contact your unit chief or superintendent explaining their accomplishments.
