Andersen Air Force Base, Guam– U.S. Air Force, Tech Sgt. Omega Guzman, a senior watch supervisor for the Air Traffic Control Tower with the 36th Operation Support Squadron, was recognized as the 36th Wing’s Team Andersen Linebacker of the Week at Andersen Air Force Base, Guam, Sept. 28, 2022.

The Team Andersen Linebacker of the Week recognizes outstanding enlisted officers and civilian and total force personnel who have had an impact on achieving Team Andersen’s Mission, Vision, and Priorities.

After arriving at Andersen AFB, Guzman started as a shift supervisor, overseeing four controllers and watching supervisors through daily air traffic operations. She identified communication, training, scheduling, and task execution shortfalls between the shifts and could not only bridge the gap but create mediums for increased efficiency throughout the facility.

“I do talk to airplanes and we do control air traffic, but the best things about my job are the people,” said Guzman. “I get to mentor and help grow our newest Airmen, and then we all get to come together as a team and do operations.”
