I Sustain This: February 2024 Nominees

PS Magazine’s I Sustain This campaign is designed to recognize civilian sustainers who exemplify the highest standards while maintaining equipment to meet combat readiness requirements and stay in the fight, even under the most arduous of circumstances.
For February 2024, we had one civilian sustainer nominated for this program: Mr. Andy W. Georgeson , a surface maintenance mechanic inspector with the Combined Support Maintenance Shop, Camp Douglas, WI.

Title 5 Surface Maintenance Mechanic Inspector
Combined Support Maintenance Shop (CSMS) #57
Camp Douglas, WI (WIARNG)
Nominated by: CW4 Bradley Dahl

Why does this person deserve recognition? Mr. Georgeson is our Swiss army knife. His job is to conduct initial and final inspections on all ground equipment for the CSMS. He has quickly become a state-level SME for ground equipment and a trusted source of information. However, his technician career has mostly been in armament and weapon systems, so we frequently take advantage of his knowledge in this area as well. Finally, he has maintained his GSA Lockmasters certification and is currently the only person in the WIARNG certified to penetrate locks and safes. Mr. Georgeson is an unsung civilian hero that quietly works in the background and keeps us rolling.
