On June 1, DynCorp International (DI) employees Doug Eller and Bubba White attended the 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment (SOAR) annual awards ceremony at Fort Campbell in Kentucky. DI sponsors and presents the Non-Rated Crewmember (NRCM) of the Year award each year. This year it was awarded to SGT Vincent Anastasi, B Company, 4th Battalion, 160th Aviation Regiment. Throughout 2016, SGT Anastasi exceeded every standard and expectation put forth by his command as a NRCM and non-commissioned officer (NCO). His skills and ability as a NRCM allowed him to earn all nine qualifications necessary to progress and accelerate to Fully Mission Qualified Flight Engineer in 20 months, exceeding the average progression by six months. In addition, SGT Anastasi earned his airborne wings by balancing both technical and tactical skills along with leadership attributes during a high OPTEMPO with little guidance. SGT Anastasi deserves this award as he without fail shows what a Night Stalker should be as an NCO, Soldier, and NRCM.
