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. Amy Busenbark, recruiter with the 911th Airlift Wing Recruiting Squadron, on separate occasions before graduating together from Burgettstown High School this spring, and both have since raised their right hand to become members of the Air Force Reserve.
