Maj. Gregory Jarmusz, an Air Force District of Washington Capital Airman, is an essential contributor to the Air Force security forces mission locally and abroad. He is a security forces operations chief for AFDW's A4 directorate.

Originally from Buffalo, New York, Jarmusz joined the Air Force reserve officer training corps in 1998 at Rochester Institute of Technology. He graduated with a criminal justice degree which led to a career in law enforcement. His family's proud service heritage of three generations guided his decision to become an Air Force asset.

"I chose to join the Air Force to follow in the footsteps of my grandfathers. One of them served in the Air Force in Korea and my other grandfather was a Merchant Marine," said Jarmusz. "I also have an uncle who served in Desert Storm and a brother who served active as well as Army National Guard."

Jarmusz's career spans six assignments and six deployments. Duties that include deputy command post chief, professional military education instructor and interim commander honed his group dynamic and leadership skills. He joined the AFDW team in August 2013.

"What I like most about my job in AFDW is the ability to have an impact on such a wide-ranging and dynamic mission," said Jarmusz. "From protecting Air Force One and playing a role in many events with national and international impact to supporting the mission of DoD and national leadership and having the ability to interact with peers in the DoD and other governmental agencies."

The advisement and support of the 811th Security Forces Group and 11th Security Forces Squadron that Jarmusz provides has a direct impact on the global Air Force mission. However, Maj Jarmusz is quite clear on his opinion of the AFDW asset he finds most impactful.

"The people I work with are what make the job most enjoyable; both in the professionalism they display and the camaraderie we have," Jarmusz said. "Without support, the mission falls short!"
