Why did you join the military? For a strong dose of self discipline, a wholesome education, and to see the world.

Where do you see yourself in 10 or 20 years? I see myself still in the military or finishing school to become a lawyer.

What do you do for fun here? While my time here has been short, I spend my free time watching movies, hanging out with friends, sightseeing, and playing sports.

What's your favorite Air Force memory or story? My favorite Air Force memory is when Senior Airman Michael Todaro and I were dispatched to load a satellite that was about 16-feet high and 25-feet long on a tractor-trailer combination. We had to use two forklifts on each side of the satellite, while backing the trailer underneath the raised satellite. We accomplished this task in about 45 minutes with no accidents or incidents.

What accomplishment are you most proud of? Because I am still brand new to the Air Force, I am most proud of receiving my very first coin from Senior Master Sgt. Michael Lee, 607th Air Operations Center first sergeant.

Who are your role models? My role models are Lt. Col. Ted Logan (uncle), Lt. Col Virginia Logan (aunt), and my father, Judge Andrew Logan.
