A 'STEP' up

Randall Raper, 56th Fighter Wing Command Chief, and Brig. Gen. Kurt Neubauer, 56th Fighter Wing Commander tack on technical sergeant stripes onto the former Staff Sgt. Michael Cox, 56th Operations Support Squadron, during a sneak STEP promotion Dec. 18. The Stripes for Exceptional Performers program allows base commanders a method to promote individuals who are outstanding performers, but may not have been promoted under the traditional Weighted Airmen Promotion System.
