Lt. Gen. Stacey Hawkins, Air Force Sustainment Center commander, was TDY (temporary duty) to Tinker May 21-23, 2024, for a mission immersion and updates.

His TDY focused on readiness challenges related to supply chain, business innovation, software, and cost-effective readiness in the Air Force enterprise.

Hawkins and his team, Angela Tymofichuk, AFSC executive director, Col. Hall Sebren, AFSC deputy commander, and Chief Master Sgt. Maribeth Ferrer, AFSC command chief, had the opportunity to speak to and be briefed by leaders from the Air Force Sustainment Center, Oklahoma City Air Logistics Complex, 448th Supply Chain Management Wing, and 72nd Air Base Wing, among others.

Hawkins and his team received updates on the status of the complex and demonstrations of the Process, Repair, Operations, and Critical Tooling section, known as PROACT, and the B-52 Stratofortress Programmed Depot Maintenance modernization program, from OC-ALC leadership. The 448th SCMW leaders briefed Hawkins on their latest advancements, while the 72nd ABW provided updates on its support to the installation and its readiness posture for Great Power Competition.

Hawkins also had the opportunity to recognize star performers and hold professional development sessions at scheduled luncheons with junior officers and enlisted members of Team Tinker.

The mission of the AFSC is to provide sustainment and logistics readiness to deliver combat power for America. The center provides war-winning expeditionary capabilities to the warfighter through world-class depot maintenance, supply chain management and operations and installation support. AFSC provides critical sustainment for the Air Force’s most sophisticated weapons systems.
