Aaron Carpenter, a member of Bradshaw Army Airfield’s air traffic control tower team, was recognized as Employee of the Quarter at a town hall, Feb. 26.

In a very short period, Carpenter mastered tower operations at Bradshaw and then actively sought to train and educate others in order to overcome personnel shortages.

Carpenter made significant contributions to the garrison, such as revising and updating PTA’s flight data computers, volunteering for numerous projects and training additional personnel. He also personally assisted in training two Marine air traffic controllers to supplement PTA staff, helping them extend unit training time.

Carpenter’s coworkers describe him as an incredibly hard worker who can always be counted on.

“Aaron was lauded by both military and civilian aviation personnel for his ‘going above and beyond’ attitude,” said Blake Doll, air traffic control facility chief and Carpenter’s supervisor.

Carpenter has been with the PTA family for more than three years and continues to contribute to his ever-changing career field.
