Why did you join the Air Force?

I came from active duty. I wanted to finish out my Bachelors of Science degree at the time using tuition assistance and decided to stay in for a few reasons. I enjoy the travel opportunities, the community, and how I can work toward a retirement while still pursuing other civilian goals.

How does your job support the mission of the 944th Fighter Wing?

Electricity is pretty important, don’t you think? From coffee pots to airfield lighting, my job ensures everyone else can do their job.

If you were on a deserted island...?

Prepare for bed down? That airfield isn’t going to light itself.
