Tech. Sgt. George Wilson, services technician for the 183rd Fighter Wing, returned home from a deployment to Morón Air Base, Spain.

Tech. Sgt. Wilson and two other airmen from the 183rd volunteered for the deployment, which was in support of Operation Enduring Freedom. "I felt that my help and knowledge could be used in Spain," said Tech. Sgt. Wilson.

While there, Tech. Sgt. Wilson helped raise the morale of servicemembers on the air base by executing responsibilities as the non-commissioned officer in charge of the Morón Air Base Community Center and by managing the base movie theater there.

"The deployment enabled me to utilize my management skills by implementing services and activities at a deployed location," said Tech. Sgt. Wilson.

When he was not facilitating the events and activities that took place at the community center and successfully running the movie theater, he found time to take in the monuments of the nearby city, Seville, Spain.

"I had a great time sightseeing and observing all of the architectures," said Tech. Sgt. Wilson.

He said viewing the Cathedral of Seville, the largest Gothic cathedral and the third-largest church in the world, was one of his favorite experiences while there.

Tech. Sgt. Wilson said that he was not only able to use the skills that he has accumulated during his nine years with the 183rd Fighter Wing while in Spain, but that his experience will enable him to enhance his job performance.

"The skills that I acquired as the NCOIC of the community center at Morón Air Base will assist me throughout the rest of my military career," said Tech. Sgt. Wilson.
