- SrA Tong is an Operations Manager for the 773 CES and was the principal acquisitions agent during USARAK’s recent power restoration project. SrA Tong navigated multiple vendors, validating manufacturing requirements and helped secure a $700 replacement uninterruptable power supply within seven days. His work in expediting the materiel acquisition mitigated power interruptions to USARAK’s SCIF, directly enabling training for joint operations. Furthermore, SrA Tong worked outside his career field by assisting with the replacement of a water main valve that controlled water on the to the west side of the base. His actions reduced mission critical water outages directly supporting the installation, air operations and the Alaskan Command.
