According to his peers, this enthusiasm is apparent when he comes to work each day.
"Wolfgang is always willing to help," said Staff Sgt. Patty Troutman, contracting noncommissioned officer, 675th Contingency Contracting Team. "His enthusiasm permeates the office."
In addition to loving his work and his enthusiasm for biking, Ringer says he enjoys the company of his wife of 32 years.
