BISMARCK, N.D. - Chief Master Sergeant of the Air Force Kaleth O. Wright represents the highest enlisted level of leadership in the Air Force, and Friday he addressed the airmen at Minot Air Force Base.

More than five hundred airmen gathered for the Chief Master Sergeants address Friday.

Wright said that in his first year as Chief Master Sergeant he has been in his office, 55 of the 300 and 65 days.

Three hundred and 10 days have been spent traveling, often time to air force bases around the country.

In his message to the airmen, he spoke to the future of the air force and thanked all the men and women for their commitment and service to the United States Air Force.

"Fifty-five days in the pentagon and all the rest of that time I was out on the road, somewhere. Trying to get a feel and trying to make sure I have the push of all of our airmen, what's happening across our air force," said Wright.

Wright is stationed out of the Pentagon in Washington. Tonight he will attend the chief induction ceremony on base.
