Aloha! I am Gabriel “gaberock” Avilla, a successful Active Duty Airman and CrossFit trainer that blends his passion for command and fitness to drive team success. I hold the rank of Lieutenant Colonel in the United States Air Force and currently serve as Chief of Current Operations, Joint Forces Headquarters Department of Defense Information Network Defense Operation Center (JFHQ DODIN), at Fort Meade, Maryland. I have previously served as Squadron Commander for the 673d Communications Squadron, Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson, Alaska, and the 49th Communications Squadron, Holloman Air Force Base, New Mexico. I also led as Affiliate Manager and Head Coach at 907 CrossFit and CrossFit Holloman. I am passionate about building leaders to serve both in the Air Force and within their local community, but most of all improving what’s “between the ears” in all of us. I am lucky in life to be married to my beautiful and strong wife Gina and raising our kids Lana and Benjamin wherever the Air Force takes us.
