James Gaston, 37 AS loadmaster, worked together to create a new repair program within their unit, which salvages usable parts from nonfunctional headsets to create complete units. In the first iteration of their program, Gaston and Stone were able to assemble nine fully functional headsets from individual components, thus reducing the number of new headsets needing to be purchased. Together, they saved the Air Force $8,100.
