Michael McNeal, the maintenance material control officer
for the VFA-31 Tomcatters, was recognized as the Commander, Strike Fighter Wing Atlantic's Ground Maintenance Officer of the Year in early October 2012.
Our maintenance material control officer
(MMCO) had to make a decision; we needed a fully mission-capable aircraft to get in the air to support the ground troops.
It is like being deployed every day, and I must have great communication with the expeditors, LSC detachment, Squadron Maintenance Material Control Officers
(MMCOs), and members of the Triad," said Kight.
