Sergeant gets Bronze Star

EGLIN AIR FORCE BASE, Fla. -- A sergeant with the 33rd Fighter Wing was awarded the Bronze Star Tuesday for his service during his deployment in Southwest Asia. Senior Master Sgt. Jamie Jordan oversaw maintenance for the 380th Air Expeditionary Wing at Al Dhafra Air Base in the United Arab Emirates from March 2012 to February 2013. His squadron of 1,400 maintenance personnel prepared aircraft for a variety of missions. Jordan was one of the first maintainers to arrive at Eglin to work in the F-35 program before his deployment, and he's slated to return to that now that he's home. (Source: WEAR-TV, Northwest Florida Daily News, 06/04/13)
