The 17th Comptroller Squadron maximizes the 17th Training Wing’s resources and delivers premier financial management services. 17th CPTS supports more than half of Goodfellow Air Force base’s population, including students, permanent-party, and civilians.

Tech. Sgt. Skott Cameron, 17th CPTS noncommissioned officer in charge of financial operations, oversees processing payments, travel vouchers, and permanent change of station forms across the 17th TRW.

“The best part of this job is answering questions and being able to correct problems before our customers even know about it,” said Cameron. “It just feels amazing because you know that you helped somebody that day.”

Cameron not only provides excellent service within the 17th CPTS, but he has also innovated a new time-saving process, which is to be implemented across Air Education and Training Command.

“The largest impact that I’ve had is finding a better way to process students, ensuring that they do not have to spend their time coming into the finance office,” said Cameron. “Instead, they can spend that time studying, so they can graduate and become the lethal and ready Airmen of tomorrow’s Air Force today.”

Cameron has been developing a waiver to help reduce the debt that students might create during temporary duty assignments enroute to their newly assigned duty station.

“Tech. Sgt. Cameron does not just continue the processes that have been followed for years,” said Master Sgt. Crystal Doepker, 17th CPTS and Wing Staff Agencies senior enlisted leader. “Instead, he sees that there is not only an outdated process and a problem, but strives to create a solution. He has a very innovative mindset.”

Based on his outstanding contributions, 17th Training Wing leadership selected Cameron as the 17th Training Wing Member of the Month for August

“I am coming up on a PCS soon, so this is a nice way to say goodbye to Goodfellow,” said Cameron. “It feels really great just to know that I have had an impact here, and across all of AETC.”
