Etter proved himself to be a master negotiator with an exacting attention to detail.

After a twenty-two day visit at home with family and his fiancé, Airman First Class Etter will be assigned to Seymour Johnson Air Force Base in North Carolina to serve his Contracting special assignment beginning in June 2012.
