MINOT AIR FORCE BASE, ND --
The Air Force recently recognized a civilian from the 91st Space Wing as the Air Force’s 2005 Lt. Gen. Leo Marquez Award for Munitions and Missile Maintenance.
“It is really an honor to win an award at such a level,” said Roger Sundsbak, 91st Missile Maintenance Squadron corrosion shop manager. “This has to be the ultimate achievement.”
During the year, Mr. Sundsbak’s experience led his shop to an 87 percent field and in-shop work order completion rate despite manning shortages. Additionally he displayed a safety first attitude with 553 of his shop’s work orders being incident free.
“It’s the time and effort [Mr. Sundsbak] and his section put forth daily that keeps the missile facilities in top condition,” said Capt. Randall Feltner, 91st MMXS facilities flight commander. “I’m extremely proud of Mr. Sundsbak. His win at Air Force proves that Team Minot truly has the best of the best.”
In his off-duty time, Mr. Sundsbak contributed more than 250 hours to a local 4-H chapter, providing farming insight and instruction to local children, and acquired sponsorships for a local high school rodeo competition.
According to Mr. Sundsbak, he couldn’t have achieved this without the help of his co-workers.
“You are only as good as the people you work for and with,” said Mr. Sundsbak. “I would like to thank everyone in the space wing and to everyone in the corrosion shop for their hard work and dedication.”
The award, named in honor of (ret.) Lt. Gen. Leo Marquez, recognizes maintenance operations in the categories of aircraft, munitions, missile and communications-electronics maintenance.
