Wyvern Warrior - SSgt Andrew Burke

This week’s Wyvern Warrior is SSgt Andrew Burke, dedicated crew chief at the 555th Aircraft Maintenance Unit! Originally from Ann Arbor, Michigan, Burke joined the Air Force eight years ago and oddly enough has been at Aviano for 5.55 years. Since arriving at Aviano, Burke has distinguished himself from others in many ways. For example, he designed a jet fuel starter pump handle which is used to reduce the amount of Airmen needed for the job from five down to one! Burke enjoys listening to Sum 41, and his favorite movie is Pineapple Express. He considers joining the Air Force a defining moment in his life, and says it changed his perspective of himself and those around him. In the future, Burke would like to become a chief for a maintenance group. You’re doing amazing work, Burke! Keep at it.
