Adam Wielk, 23, a member of Masuk High School’s Class of 2018, has served his country with distinction as a senior airman in the U.S. Air Force.
He is currently in medical logistics and was recently honored as Airman of the 1st Quarter 2023 by the Wilford Hall Ambulatory Surgical Center 59th Medical Support Group.
Wielk also earned recognition as Sharpest Guardsman from the Joint Base San Antonio Honor Guard last year.
On July 8, 2022, Col. Nonie C. Cabana, USAF retired, deputy director of Region 7 for the Filipino Veterans Recognition and Education Project wrote a letter to Col. John Modra Jr., commander of the 59th Medical Support Group:
On behalf of the Filipino Veterans Recognition and Education Project, let me convey my heartfelt and grateful appreciation to AIC Adam Wielk for his flawless honor guard performance as an integral part of the Joint Base San Antonio Honor Guard during the US Congressional Award Ceremony on June 11, 2022 at Marriott Northwest, San Antonio. The participation of the Honor Guard added dignity and solemnity to this momentous event. Equally important, he wowed the crowd!
Again, kudos to AIC Wielk for a job well done!
Aside from graduating from Masuk, Wielk attended Monroe Elementary and Jockey Hollow Middle schools while growing up in Monroe.
Wielk, who will have served in the Air Force for three years in August, will soon be going on his first deployment.
