As a spotlight performer, individuals are chosen by leadership for demonstrating the Air Force's Core Values: Integrity First, Service Before Self, and Excellence in All We Do.

Senior Airman Joshua Martin, 22nd Medical Support Squadron medical materiel technician, was selected as the 22nd Air Refueling Wing spotlight performer for the week of March 10 through 14.

Martin is responsible for supply equipment operations valued over $3 million for the 22nd MDSS.

He enlisted in 2010 and has been assigned to McConnell since 2011.

"Martin is always eager to step up to any job, even helping the flight achieve the team of the year for the squadron," said Capt. John M. Bernabe, Medical Logistics and Readiness flight commander. "He also makes his mark around the base and the community. Martin was a member of the base honor guard, chaired the Airman's Council marketing committee and has volunteered in the community."

Who is the most positive influence in your life and why?

My wife, Natalie, has been very supportive in my Air Force career and has been one of the main driving forces behind my plan to staying in for 20 years.

What is your favorite book/movie and why?

Tom Clancy's "Shadow Warriors" is my favorite book, because it illustrates the history of special operations and the doctrine behind it. My favorite movie has to be "Forgetting Sara Marshall" because it is hilarious.

Where is the most interesting place you have traveled to and why do you feel that way?

Out of all the places I have been I would have to say Hurlburt Field has been my favorite assignment. The beaches were beautiful and the city had much to offer.

What is one goal that you have already accomplished, or would like to accomplish, during your Air Force career?

I would like to make technical sergeant. on the first try as well as earn personal trainer associates and business management degrees. Eventually, I would like to retrain into an intelligence or command and control career field, because I want to do something that puts me into the action. My long term goal is to retire as a chief master sergeant.

If you had the opportunity to meet anyone in the world, who would it be and why?

I would like to meet Bruce Lee, because his life philosophy is so profound.
