MILWAUKEE -- The Milwaukee Brewers recognized Senior Master Sgt. Marlin Mosley, an instructor boom operator and the noncommissioned officer-in-charge of Operations training at the 128th Air Refueling Wing, during the pre-game events of the Sunday, July 11, 2010, baseball game at Miller Park here.
Mosley was recognized due to his achievements throughout his military career and for his contributions during recent deployments. The Brewers displayed Mosley's career biography, several photos of him performing his duties, and a live-feed of him and his family, which was broadcast on the stadium's Jumbotron.
"Words can't even explain the privilege this is," Mosley said.
According to Mosley, the 128 ARW commander, Col. Ted Metzgar, chose the 25-year veteran as the first choice to receive the community's recognition.
Mosley said he was deployed to Manas Air Base, Kyrgyzstan, in 2008 as the chief boom operator, was the acting first sergeant and flew refueling missions.
One year later, Mosley said he deployed to Incirlik Air Base, Turkey, where he flew the most refueling missions in a three-week period.
"It was an honor to be chosen, it is a privilege to serve this nation, and this is more than I could ask for," Mosley said.
Sergeant Mosley was accompanied by his wife, Jessica, his children Kendall, Myles and Kellen, and several friends and family members.
