The Air Force's top security forces Airman visited Luke Air Force Base Dec. 9 to get a glimpse of the mission, as well as to meet and greet with 56th Security Forces Squadron Airmen.

Brig. Gen. Allen Jamerson, Air Force Security Forces director and deputy logistics chief of staff, installations and mission support, and Chief Master Sgt. Stephen White, Air Force Security Forces career field manager, toured various security forces facilities and learned the squadron's processes and mission. Jamerson is the focal point for ensuring the physical security of Air Force nuclear assets, and planning and programming for active-duty and Reserve component security forces worldwide.

Jamerson is familiar with the Luke mission since he was the 56th SFS commander from 1998 to 2000.

During the visit, Jamerson and White toured the 56th SFS, the South Gate Visitor's Center, the Combat Arms Training and Maintenance range and the flightline.

"He wanted to spend the day talking to Airmen and getting their input on the career field," said Master Sgt. Timothy Ogan, 56th SFS installation security superintendent. "It's important for him to see the various missions at different bases and see what kind of improvements can be made."

Jamerson concluded his visit with a 56th SFS all-call and awards presentation. He urged his fellow defenders to strive to make their Air Force better.

"I believe all of you have a responsibility to be innovative thinkers," he said. "I need your input to help figure out how to make improvements across the Air Force."
