Tech. Sgt. Brandon Wright, 375th Logistics Readiness Squadron fuels management operations section chief, is this week’s Showcase Airman.
Wright developed an innovative process to refuel 64 Army vehicles from the 502D Engineering Brigade. By establishing a direct refueling point, Wright cut refueling times in half. Wright not only reduced refueling time, but also enabled the reduction of commercial transportation contracting fees by $800,000, which allowed 165 Soldiers to receive critical convoy training.
This pivotal process allowed for the successful accomplishment of Operation Gauntlet 2018, which required service members to build a 600-meter bridge across Milford Lake at Fort Riley, Kansas, to cross armored vehicles.
