Tech. Sgt. Jeremy Stutzman, a Reservist assigned to the 375th Air Mobility Wing Legal Office, is this week’s Showcase Airman. Stutzman is on extended orders and has taken the reins as the Non-Commissioned Officer in Charge of General Law.
Stutzman took control of a section which had zero manning for the prior two months and put it back on track to full-steam operation again. Revamping and streamlining processes began as soon as he arrived, and Stutzman revectored tasks being covered by attorneys and aligned them as paralegal tasks, saving more than 20 officer man hours per week. Additionally, the realignment aided in developing a brand new paralegal’s writing, research, and management skills.
Next, Stutzman managed the triage and assistance of 514 clients, requiring 717 documents and 971 notaries to be produced, thereby saving the clients $100,580 in legal fees. Finally, Stutzman spearheaded the weekly re-enlistment briefing which returned 14 man hours to the active duty component and facilitated the process for 53 enlisted members to continuing to serve in the Air Force.
