Name and rank: Senior Master Sgt. Cassidy Wong

Duty title: Base functional manager and superintendent

Unit of assignment: Commander’s Action Group, 88th Air Base Wing

What do you do at Wright-Patt?

I’ve been awarded the opportunity to wear two hats on WPAFB. I serve in a deliberate development position as the 3F5X1 base functional manager and superintendent of the wing Commander’s Action Group.

As the 3F5 base functional manager, it is my responsibility to ensure the administration career field is equipped, developed and sustained to provide the required Air Force capabilities at the installation level. I also advocate for the assignment, training and proper utilization, as well as the health and welfare, of 164 administration personnel.

As the superintendent of the wing Commander’s Action Group, I provide admin expertise in support of the largest Air Force base population with 30,000 assigned personnel. Additionally, I provide support to the wing top 4 senior leaders with processing evaluation and decoration correspondence, executive comm support and manage the wing SharePoint site. Lastly, I collaborate with the chief of the Commander’s Action Group to advise the wing commander on all special projects, awards and correspondence.

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

My role as the base functional manager has many expectations, but the most important one to me is ensuring our 3F5 Airmen are properly mentored and developed to the level that they are ready to integrate and excel in every functional community and installation to which they are assigned.

While serving as the superintendent in the Commander’s Action Group has many important factors, the most important to me is carrying the direct responsibility to relay the wing commander’s administrative standards, policies and expectations to the entire installation.
