SCHRIEVER AIR FORCE BASE, Colo. -- Each month the Schriever Air Force Base Top III selects Top Performers to highlight the superior efforts and contributions of junior enlisted members.

Tech. Sgt. Huynh Lam, 50th Operations Support Squadron, earned September's honor.  As the non-commissioned officer in charge of the Student and Training Manager section of the Operations Support Flight, Lam has faced many challenges.  He stood up this new section in response to the Space Training Transition, in which nine initial qualification courses from Vandenberg Air Force Base, California will be integrated into the 50th Operations Support Squadron.  Lam is responsible for in-processing all 50th Operations Group students from arrival to Undergraduate Space Training, then through Mission Qualification Training.  He is currently tracking 162 students' status and working with the 50th Space Wing to find jobs for the students who are not currently training.  While balancing work responsibilities, he also finds time to support the base as an active member of the 5/6 Council and the squadron as the president of the booster club.

Senior Airman John Shackelford, 22nd Space Operations Squadron, earned October's honor.  As a Radio Frequency Transmission technician, Shackelford quickly adapted to the requirements of his new job.  He is driven to learn and has a fantastic attitude.  So far, Shackelford has completed the basics of his Air Force Satellite Control Network Link Protection System training in which he identified 45 anomalies on the AFSCN within 22 days.  By aggregating and analyzing the information from these events he has given Air Force Space Command and Joint Space Operations Center leaders valuable situational awareness of radio spectrum utilization. He has also assisted in the generation of products required for the ALPS Accreditation Package, as well as documents essential to the development of an ALPS Technical Order. Once accredited, ALPS will change how 22 SOPS conduct operations and his efforts have helped move the unit forward.
