"These are the people that help us manage our resources on this base and in this wing. When you start brining in the F-35s, you get more resources. They're going to help us efficiently manage those towards maximizing mission capability, taking care of our people with those resources. So as a commander, managing resources is one of my primary jobs and I rely heavily on them to help me do that." -Col. David Berkland, 354th Fighter Wing commander, on his visit with finance Airmen of the 354th Comptroller Squadron
