Name and rank: Jordan West, NF-3

Duty title: Logistics coordinator

Unit of assignment: Air Force Marathon Office

What do you do at Wright-Patt?

I do a little bit of everything logistically for the Air Force Marathon. We plan, set up, and execute the event and heavily coordinate with our on-base and off-base partners throughout the year.

I am responsible for the safety, security, and well-being of all the runners and volunteers during the event. The cones, fencing, message boards and signs on the course are a result of work I do throughout the year to ensure the best course experience possible for our participants.

Why are you and your job important to the Air Force and WPAFB?

We run a world-class event that people from all over the globe come to run and see what the premier Air Force base looks like. This event helps show citizens how great the Air Force is, and we want to make sure that we are giving the runners the best experience possible.
