SFO Zachary Lam holds a variety of roles within Washington Wing Headquarters with his primary role being the Assistant Director of Cadet Programs. In the Assistant Director of Cadet Programs position, SFO Lam assists the Wing Director of Cadet Program in implementing the Cadet Program for the wing by overseeing activities that involve cadets, communicating with Squadron Deputy Commanders for Cadets, and evaluating & solving concerns within the wing relating to the Cadet Program. He also assists in ensuring Washington Wing's objectives and missions are met in all departments that he is assigned to.

Prior to assuming his current position, Senior Flight Officer strived to be the best dining facilities (DFAC) member he could be. To accomplish this, he went to the Washington Training Academy where he began his epic journey in DFAC and learned the culinary skills necessary to receive a master rating in DFAC. His career culminated when he served on the DFAC team as Cascade Falcon XVI where he helped cook over 125 pounds of bacon. His team's motto was to serve good food on time, every time. After savoring this experience, he progressed to the point where he instructed DFAC at the Washington Training Academy. SFO Lam now spends his days serving as DFAC at fly-ins and other activities.
