Arkansas River Valley Business Directory

Congratulations to TSgt Cody Carson for winning the 2021 Lance P. Sijan USAF Leadership Award in the NCO category.

TSgt Carson is a member of the 153rd Intelligence Squadron and was selected for the award for his work in leading his fellow Airmen and supporting MAJCOMS with vital intelligence products.

“This is a very prestigious award with a very select group of recipients. Reading past recipient’s stories and citations makes me proud to follow in their footsteps. I am grateful to my command for the recommendation but even more grateful for the personnel that are involved in my squadron’s targeting operations that I supervise,” said Carson.

The Lance P. Sijan USAF Leadership Award, created in 1981, recognizes the accomplishments of Airmen, both officers and enlisted, who demonstrate the highest qualities of leadership in the performance of their duties and conduct of their lives.

Sijan, an Air Force captain and fighter pilot, died while a POW in Vietnam. Prior to his capture, the United States Air Force Academy graduate and posthumous Medal of Honor recipient evaded the North Vietnamese for six weeks after being shot down in November 1967.

The national award has become one of the U.S. Air Force’s most prestigious honors.

“Everyday TSgt Cody Carson comes to work ready to lead our production team,” shared a fellow airmen. “He consistently goes above and beyond his normal duties to ensure that the 153rd ITD products are completed correctly and submitted on time. His attitude and passion emulate that of an outstanding leader. This guy is going places and I’m so blessed to be part of his journey! I can’t wait to see what the future holds and the plans that God has for him! Cody, I pray that you continue to work hard, continue to inspire others, keep the positive attitude regardless of the obstacles you face, and stay passionate about Airmen! This award is very much deserved!”
