Class of 1985
Air Force, 11 Years

I joined the Air Force right after graduation. I started basic on 10/23/85. In the beginning it was scary, with not knowing what to expect. But it turned out to be one of the best experiences, of my life! My job (or AFSC) was Security Police. The field was split into Law Enforcement Specialists and Security Specialists. I was a Law Enforcement Specialist, which meant I had duties similar to that of a civilian cop. Later on I left the active duty side and went reserve. I got out in Jan 97. Being in the military is not for everyone, but I can say that it made me a more responsible adult, and I wouldn't take that experience back for anything!!

Aircraft maintenance as flying crew chief and command logistics for 22nd Air Force. Served in Strategic Air Command and Military Airlift Command. Stationed in Columbus, Mississippi, Naha, Okinawa, Charleston, South Carolina, Hickman AFB, Hawaii and Travis AFB, California. I would not trade my years in the USAF for any other life I could have had during that time. I wish I could do it all over again.
