Faces of Westover

Staff Sgt. Roger A. Iversen, a crew chief with the 436th Maintenance Squadron, inspects the landing gear on a C-5M as part of the Isochronal Inspection process, here. The 436th MXS is an active duty detachment assigned to Westover. Sergeant Iversen said being active duty at a Reserve base has given him a new understanding of the total force concept. "It's basically a whole new environment to me," he said. "It's a whole new set of rules and it gives a neat perspective to see the active duty working alongside Reservists, Air Reserve Technicians, Active Guard and Reserve personnel and civilians." Sergeant Iversen also noted the camaraderie he sees at Westover is like nothing he's seen elsewhere on active duty. "I think it comes from people working together for so long. People know eachother better. They know eachother's strengths and weaknesses," he said.
