“Sometimes, you find yourself in the middle of nowhere, and sometimes, in the middle of nowhere you find yourself.” In this episode, I invite Major Nick Lewis to talk about the common struggle of trying to find your place when advancing to a new tier of responsibility. When it seems like there is no hope to be found, sometimes what you need is closer than you think.
Major Nickalous J. Lewis is currently serving as the Deputy Director, 78th Force Support Squadron, Robins AFB, Georgia. In his position, Major Lewis leads 345 civilians and 48 military personnel in programs that foster unit and community cohesion and contributes to training that improves the quality of life for both military and civilians.
Major Lewis commissioned from the Air Force Reserve Officer Training Corps (AFROTC) Detachment 305 at Louisiana Tech University, Ruston, LA in May 2012. In November 2012 he entered active duty as a Manpower Analyst at the 2d Manpower Requirements Squadron at Joint Base Langley-Eustice in Hampton, Virginia. Following that first assignment, Maj Lewis led multiple Force Support Squadron organizations including Force Management, Career Development, Military Personnel Section, and the Sustainment Services flight. His special duty assignments include serving as the Deputy Chief of Protocol, as well as an AFROTC instructor as his alma mater, Louisiana Tech University, which was his last position before becoming Deputy Director.
