Our Air Force stories are as unique as our fingerprints. For me, it started in 1996, I was 20 something years old, and knew I had to change my choices or I would end up exactly like everyone else. I feared I would get some college, but not complete it, get married, have 2.5 kids and never leave Florida.I heard through a friend of a friend, that one

It was September of 1981, most of my friends were beginning their college experience, and I was in a white van headed to the airport on a journey that would begin at Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio, Texas.
