What's your favorite Air Force memory or story?  On my first deployment to Kuwait my father was still in the Army, and during his transition to Iraq he surprised in me the dining facility.

What accomplishment are you most proud of?  Joining the military. I've learned and experienced so much the last 10.5 years all while enjoying life at the same time.

Who are your role models?  My parents who have supported all my decisions from the beginning. They taught to me to work hard, play hard. Treat people with respect and if you believe in something stick with it. It seems basic, but it has worked for me so far.
