131st Bomb Wing Citizen-Airman is first responder

Missouri Air National Guard Senior Master Sgt. Sheldon G. Matthews serves as the 131st Bomb Wing first sergeant for wing staff at Whiteman Air Force Base, Missouri. Matthews was recently the first responder to a serious car accident October 11, 2014. “I credit everything I did and my reaction to the things I have learned in the military through Self Aid and Buddy Care and emergency response training,” Matthews said. “It’s not in me to just stand around and watch; I didn’t even think about it, I just went.” (U.S. Air National Guard photo by Tech.
