JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIO-LACKLAND, Texas – It’s Engineers Week and we wanted to spotlight a few of our engineer teammates at AFIMSC. 

Meet Senior Master Sgt. Jeremy Field with the Air Force Installation and Mission Support Center’s Installation Support Directorate. Field is the Facilities Sustainment, Restoration and Modernization Analysis (FSRM) superintendent. 

What is your engineering area of expertise? 
Electrical engineering

What are the main things you are working on now?
My three “big rocks” include:
-- serving as the Department of the Air Force (DAF) representative in support of the Office of the Secretary of Defense Facility Sustainment Model
-- managing DAF FSRM Installation Health Assessment Tableau dashboard updates, and 
-- co-leading an Air Force Base Operations Support/Base Maintenance Contract Cost Control Plan effort in support of 27 installations.

What do you enjoy the most about being an Air Force CE?
Camaraderie amongst my fellow civil engineers. Throughout my 24-year career in civil engineering, no matter what level was being supported (i.e. flight, section, squadron, group, wing and headquarters), the community has not strayed from its family approach of taking care of one another — in good times and bad. 

How do you contribute to the lethality and readiness of the Air Force?
I’m currently leading a team of three in support of the FSRM Base Maintenance Contract Cost Control Plan with four on-site and 10 virtual visits. The effort will continue over the next two months —supporting 27 installations with a goal of reducing a $70 million FSRM base maintenance contract labor cost overage across the Air Force. In turn, cost savings gained from this initiative will provide the necessary resources to sustain a lethal and ready Air Force.   

What has been your favorite, most successful or most rewarding project in your career with the Air Force so far and why? 
As a technical school instructor at Sheppard AFB, Texas, I was tasked to support an interior electric classroom trainer upgrade project that involved a large number of electrical systems instructors. Not only were we able to provide students with a real-world training scenario, our time spent proved invaluable as we were able to learn from one another— thus being able to provide enhanced instruction.

What motivates and inspires you the most?
My family and giving back to others. 

Is there anything you would like to add?
A quote from Ed Mylett has served as a guide for my actions … “Respect is earned. Honesty is appreciated. Trust is gained. Loyalty is returned.”
