I Own This: February 2022 Nominees

PS Magazine’s I Own This campaign is designed to recognize Warfighters of all services who exemplify the highest standards of care for their assigned vehicles and equipment and contribute in meaningful ways to their unit's overall maintenance and supply posture. In short, they live and breathe readiness.
This month, we had one (1) Warfighter nominated for this program: SGT Francisco PerezRios, US Army.

SGT Francisco PerezRios
US Army/Active
UH-60 Black Hawk Quality Control NCO-in-Charge
D Co., 3-227 Assault Helicopter Battalion (AHB)
Fort Hood, TX (Deployed Forward)
Nominated by: SFC Christopher Herrera

Why does this individual deserve recognition? SGT PerezRios demonstrated fierce leadership and decision making while deployed with 3-227 AHB in support of Operation Atlantic Resolve. He ensured by-the-book maintenance standards were adhered to for 34 UH-60’s through presence and action. SGT PerezRios is a highly sought-out technical inspector within the battalion for his technical knowledge. He provided over 3,000 man-hours of technical inspections and educated battalion maintainers through challenging troubleshooting procedures on a daily basis. He enabled the battalion to safely fly over 5000 hours incident free.

Additional Comments: SGT PerezRios demonstrated the intelligence and motivation to excel as a 3-227 AHB technical inspector. He has the dedication and character and deserves to be recognized as a great leader that Soldiers are inspired to emulate.
