Technology. sergeant. Angelica Robinson, a Religious Affairs Airman with the 113th Wing, District of Columbia Air National Guard, received the 2021 Washington Air Force District Chaplain Corps Award for demonstrating outstanding performance superior in his functions. Robinson received the Charles R. Meier Award, which honors retired Chief Master Sgt. Meier, the second chaplain assistant field director of the Air Force Chaplain Corps.

An Airman’s mental resilience and spiritual well-being can be as important as physical strength and conditioning. The Chaplain Corps and Religious Affairs Airmen like Robinson play a vital role in the U.S. Armed Forces, caring for service members and their families.

Robinson doesn’t need outside recognition to feel dedicated to her work, but “receiving an award makes me feel like I’m serving my purpose, which is to take care of Airmen and their families,” she said. declared.

In addition to his position with 113 Wing, Robinson has also participated in a Military Personnel Appropriation Tour – an active duty tour to meet short-term active force needs – with the 316 Wing Chapel since October 2018.

Each unit has an assigned religious support team, and along with his team and chaplain, Robinson cares for more than 800 members of the security forces group at Joint Base Andrews.

One of the events Robinson and his team hosted for their unit was an “Embrace the Struggle” luncheon, where they invited young Airmen and leaders to get to know each other. Robinson also led base-wide events such as movie nights and the tree lighting ceremony.

Some aspects of Robinson’s work are more emotionally challenging. “I see the more unfortunate side of things when I’m activated for a disaster mental health team to respond to a crisis within a unit,” Robinson said. “My main goal is to provide comfort to this unit or family during these times.”

Where does Robinson get her own motivation from? “I draw inspiration from hearing testimonies of the impact the chapel has had on someone,” Robinson said. “Seeing or hearing positive feedback, whether in person, via email or on social media, always makes me feel good. I think it means people know we’re there.
