Faces of the Defender: Vehicle Maintenance

Faces of the Defender: Vehicle Maintenance


My name is Senior Airman Lindsey, and I am
a vehicle maintainer.
You know, when you get in a car, you don’t
think, “Yeah, let me talk to these guys down
here in Vehicle Maintenance,” but when something
goes wrong it’s like “Let me get it over there
right away,” and it’s like your personal vehicle
— “Let me get it over here right away so
that I can continue with my life.”
We actually work with every shop and maintain
their vehicles so that they can complete their
mission.
It’s almost like, you know, we’re doctors
in our field.
We get to see it, inspect it, diagnose it,
test it.
And one of the best things is seeing a vehicle
that’s immobile drive away after it’s been
in our shop.
It’s one of the best feelings where we can
just look and say, “Yeah, we did that.”
I am excited.
Every time I’m here, every day that I work,
I’m excited, because I learn something
new.
We take pride in that, because we know how
valuable it is, you know, and it’s one of
the best feelings, being here and knowing that
that’s your task and people trust you to do
your job.
