8/23/2012 - MOUNTAIN HOME AIR FORCE BASE, Idaho -- Officials with the 366th Aerospace Medicine Squadron recently named the following person as their Warrior of the Week.

Candidate's rank and name: Tech Sgt. Eric Paul Johnson Pinlac

Unit and duty title: 366th Aerospace Medicine Squadron, Force Heath Management, non-commissioned officer in charge.

Time in Air Force: 14 years, nine months

Time at Mountain Home Air Force Base: Five years, seven months

Hometown [city and state]: SAN DIEGO

Hobbies: Collecting die cast cars, playing outdoor sports and playing Wii with my kids.

What service does Tech Sgt. Pinlac provide to the Gunfighters? I help ensure that every Gunfighter is deployable and remains world-wide qualified. I monitor Gunfighter Individual medical readiness and relay this information to their commanders and unit deployment managers. I verify that our Gunfighters who deploy complete the necessary medical area of responsibility requirements before they leave Mountain Home Air Force Base. Additionally, I help prevent hearing loss on base by ensuring that all members enrolled in the Hearing Conservation Program complete their annual hearing test.

Most memorable Air Force moment. Please explain why it is memorable? One of my most memorable Air Force moments is when I was coined by Lt. Gen. Norman Seip, 12th Air Force commander, for outstanding performance during an operational readiness inspection.

Interesting personal fact: I was born in the Philippines and moved to the United States when I was 13 years old.

Why does Tech Sgt. Pinlac deserve to be a warrior of the week? Pinlac is an outstanding NCO who has filled in as the NCOIC for the past six months. He truly goes above and beyond in his work and dedication to my flight. He is not only the go-to technician in my flight but in the squadron as well.

Captain Lora Wolski, 366th Public Health flight commander.
