Tech. Sgt. Jason Jones, a recruiter assigned to the 139th Airlift Wing in St. Joseph, Mo., was the top production recruiter in the Missouri Air National Guard for 2015.

Jones enlisted 36 new Airmen last year which was 103% of his assigned goal. For his efforts, Col. Ralph Schwader, commander of the 139th Airlift Wing, presented the Air Force Commendation Medal to Jones during January drill.

Jones was able to recruit in 'hard to fill' or 'critical career fields' as designated by the National Guard Bureau. 

Jones also reached out to events such as the Kansas City Gay Pride Parade in which had an attendance of 25,000 people, the Downtown Kansas City Air Show that held over 20,000 people, and the Tarkio Fly-In that had 1,000 people.
