The 748th Supply Chain Management Group has spent the better part of the last two years reinvigorating and redefining its culture. Not only has the group focused on getting back to basics for day-to-day operations but it has strived to instill a 24/7 Wingman culture. Though Wingman Days are fun and act as a pressure release, the 748th SCMG leaders have always emphasized the value of their people as their "No. 1 resource and No. 1 priority." This led to a visual commitment banner signed by the entire leadership team as a visual to all of their commitment to their people.
