MARTINSBURG, W.Va. --

Master Sgt. Reaves has served in the unit for 12 and a half years. After basic training and tech school she worked as a temporary AGR and technician for the C-5 Conversion Office. When the temporary tour ended, she served as a traditional guardsman personnelist assigned to headquarters while working full time as a federal civilian employee at USACE and FEMA.

 

As the Wing Administrative Superintendent, Master Sgt. Reaves is responsible for providing administrative support to the wing and vice commander, wing execu­tive officer, wing command chief, and all wing staff. She is the wing official mail manager and admin­istrative base level functional manager. She is also responsible for an extensive list of additional duties to include: command support staff, housing representa­tive, alternate information technology equipment cus­todian, orders specialist, M4S clerk, defense travel alternate preparer, unit fitness program monitor and fitness assessment coordinator, timekeeper, functional area records manager, unit self-assessment program manager, share point site manager, duty status monitor, sponsorship program monitor, alternate crisis action team recorder, alternate wing drug demand reduction program manager, unit health monitor, alternate passport monitor and unit privacy monitor.

 

"Becky has an amazing work ethic. She comes in early, she works late, she even comes in on her days off to make sure things are done. She's the one that takes care of all the little details that make it easier for the rest of us to do our jobs," said Maj. Lindsay Fletcher, the 167th wing executive staff officer.

 

Reaves said she enjoys a high tempo work environ­ment.

 

"Headquarters has always been a perfect fit for my work style,” Reaves said.

 

Her hobbies are canning (preserving food) from her garden, making specialty cakes, and working out.

 

People may be surprised to know that she was the first female to play in a West Virginia state high school football playoff game. She played the position of tackle.
