Wilson praises Airmen, expresses gratitude in farewell remarks reflecting on her tenure as Air Force secretary

She praised the skill and dedication of Airmen while comparing lessons learned from gardening as a corollary for the qualities that make for good leaders and an effective Air Force secretary. You need a plan; she said; you need friends to help, meaning allies, and “as long as it’s safe, let people tinker with the tools.”
