'Never too busy to jump in'
Lisa Gibson is a newly promoted SSgt in the US Air Force. She is currently deployed to Kuwait and works on the PERSCO team. This team is responsible for accountability of all deployed members as well as casualty reporting.
Lisa is a super Air Force member as well as a super person. She is extremely involved in not only work, but also any volunteer opportunities she sees to help. She is never too busy to jump in whenever and wherever to assist. Since she has arrived in Kuwait she has signed up to take 2 online college courses and is a member of the HONOR GUARD in Kuwait. She is married and her husband Matthew Gibson (also active duty Air Force) is stationed at Randolph AFB TX.
