  • Graduation gowns to Air Force blues

    After being in the military for some time, you start seeing familiar faces in places you least expect them. On a deployment, you may run into someone who you went to technical training with; the newest member of your shop may have cross-trained since you were stationed across base from each other at a previous duty station; and you may find that you have mutual friends with about 90 percent of the members of your career field. Two of the 911th Airlift Wing’s newest recruits experienced this before being issued their first pair of combat boots. Trainee Desiree Bouch and Trainee James Choff spoke with Staff Sgt.

  • Keeping the family tradition alive

    A very reliable source for recruiting has long been recruiting people who have a family history of serving. Pentagon data showed in 2016 that 80 percent of recent troops came from a family where at least one parent, grandparent, aunt, uncle, sibling or cousin has also worn their nation’s uniform. That statistic is changing as the number of people joining less often have a family member that has served and more emphasis is placed on non-family member recruiting.
