Throughout the military you will find individuals who are able to perform multiple duties, “wear different hats”. Master Sergeant Wayne Drowns of the 201st Intelligence Squadron is one such person.

“Being an analyst I have to know the different types of intelligence out there and be able to decipher the appropriate information in order to accurately make reports for the decision makers.”

Being a member of the Intel community is unique and has a broad spectrum of challenges that one will face.

“I am constantly learning new things; which is a great experience. There are times where becoming complacent can be a concern but as I said there’s so much out there that change is constant.”

During the Hawaii National Guards response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Drowns has been working on Task Force Oahu.

“I have had to stay updated and informed on all happenings at the international level as well as nationally and locally when it comes to the trends and flows of the pandemic. I compile all the data and create the reports for the Task Force leadership.”

With his knowledge and experience, Drowns message is as simplistic as can be.

“We still have challenges ahead when we reopen everything. Continue to social distance and wear a mask. We are in this together, help each other out and be vigilant. We will get through this and we can best COVID-19.”
