recruiter assigned to the 139th Airlift Wing in St. Joseph, Mo. was the
top production recruiter in the Missouri Air National Guard for 2015.
For his efforts, Tech. Sgt. Jason Jones received the Air Force

Airlift Wing during January drill.
Jones enlisted 36 new Airmen in 2015, which was 103% of his assigned
goal, which included 'hard to fill' or 'critical career fields' as
designated by the National Guard Bureau.
Jones also reached out to events such as the Kansas City Gay Pride
Parade, which had an attendance of 25,000 people, the Downtown Kansas
City Air Show with attendance of over 20,000, and the Tarkio Fly-In
including 1,000 people.
