Tennessee Wing's Stripling Wins Communicator of the Year at the National Conference
Filed under Region Hq, Tennessee Wing, Group 1, Group 2, Group 3, Group 4 on Thursday, September 22, 2016 by Author: Lt. Col. Judy Steele.

Lt. Col. Randall Stripling, embodies going “above and beyond.” As the Wing’s Communications Technical Support Officer, he has held many CAP positions within the Communications Program, including Wing Director of Communications, Group and Squadron Communications Officer. What really sets him apart is his selflessness and willingness to help of others. When CAP began its changeover to narrow-band repeaters, Lt. Col. Stripling visited sites to find those best suited for the operations and later traveled back to many of those sites to help install the equipment. One time, just to make sure his home unit maintained the necessary documentation to remain operational, he simultaneously took on jobs as Squadron Officer for Transportation, Supply, Logistics and Communications.

Besides traveling widely in his home state to help solve problems and provide training, he started attending the neighboring Georgia Wing’s annual Communications training weekend and encouraged his fellow CAP members in Tennessee to do likewise. This opened up new areas of discussion in the CAP Communications world. He has also offered his valuable assistance to the Southeast Region’s Communications staff and delivered untold hours of research and assistance for CAP’s New Madrid earthquake exercise.
