10/23/2010 - TRANSIT CENTER AT MANAS, Kyrgyzstan -- Every week, a member of the 376th Air Expeditionary Wing is selected as the Warrior of the Week. This individual is recognized based on outstanding performance, good conduct, work ethic, and most importantly, for a job well done.

Meet the Warrior of the Week. Staff Sgt. Robert Kehr is a 376th Expeditionary Communication Squadron communications planner deployed from Dover Air Force Base, Del. He hails from Anchorage, Alaska.

Here's what Sergeant Kehr has to say about himself and his deployment to the Transit Center at Manas.

What do you do on a daily basis at Manas? I process and implement base level communications requirements and plan for future expansion of the communications systems that keep Manas talking.

What do you enjoy about being at Manas? Meeting new people from all over whether they're civilian, local nationals, sister service members or Foreign Service members.

Why did you choose to serve in the military? My Dad spent 22 years in the Air Force. It's taken care of me my entire life and I want to give something back.

How do you feel about your contributions to the Transit Center at Manas mission? I enjoy seeing the fruits of the labor the communication squadron performs. From people enjoying talking to their loved ones over Morale Net, to just hearing dial tone when we pick up a plain old telephone line.

Family: I have a beautiful two year old daughter, and a wonderful supportive and patient wife.

Time at Manas: On Nov. 2, it will be 153 days, 3672 hours, 220,320 minutes, 13,219,200 seconds.

Time in military: On Nov. 2nd, it will be 6 years, 2 months, 23 days, 54,600 hours, 3,276,000 minutes, 195,560,000 seconds

Greatest accomplishment: Processing more requirements and implementing more projects, than my predecessor.

Goals you want to achieve or meet while at Manas: 
Work on my fitness to achieve 90+ on my physical fitness test upon returning home

Hobbies: Testing and implementing new Morale Net architectures

Favorite Quote: The Morale Net is free.

Favorite movies: The Big Lebowski & Forgetting Sarah Marshall

Who is your favorite mentor and what did you learn from him/her? My Dad, there's not one aspect in life he has not helped to shape me in one way or another.

If you could spend one hour with any person, who would it be and why? Abe Lincoln. I'd like to know how he feels about the United States 150 years later.
