Brian Gilbert of the 103rd Maintenance Group answers questions from a board of First Sergeants during the annual Diamond Award selection process on January 1, 2014, at Bradley Air National Guard Base, East Granby, CT. Once a year, the Connecticut Air National Guard’s first sergeants present the Diamond Award to an individual who has shown a great deal of potential for future leadership, had a positive impact on his or her unit, and represents what the Air Force’s core values.
