Team Tinker Frontlines: Meet Airman 1st Class Arlexis Nelson

Tinker Spotlight: Airman 1st Class Arlexis Nelson

Airman 1st Class Arlexis Nelson, with the 72nd Security Forces Squadron, joined the Air Force in September 2019. She likes to read and spend time with her husband when she’s not on duty. Her main duty is controlling the entering and exiting of all vehicles and personnel onto the installation while working at the Tinker gates. Nelson says safety and security of the base’s personnel and installation’s assets are the most important part of her job. She also likes interacting with people because “I see everyone who comes on base.”
