How long have you been in the military?
I've been in for a total of 17 years. I did 10 years in the active-duty Air Force and seven years with the Air National Guard. All seven have been here with this wing.

Were you always in this Air Force specialty?
No, actually I was a [aircraft weapons loader] in both active duty and the Guard. I more recently entered the personnel field.

What do you enjoy most about the Air National Guard?
Being here [as a member of the 111th AW] is like being with family. It's getting the chance to work around people that you actually enjoy being around. We all have our job to do; and we do it well because we want to ensure that we are taking care of each other.
