Alaant’s Salute to Veterans:
Q: Which branch of the armed forces did you serve?
A: The United States Air Force/Air National Guard
Q: What was your favorite part about being in the service?
A: Meeting people from all over the country, leading a squadron of more than 40 ranging in age from 18-26 years old, and training every day both physically and mentally.
Q: What skill did you learn in the service that is most transferrable to civilian employment?
A: How to persevere. My situation is unique. However, I reflect on my days in basic training and tech school regularly. You had no other choice, but to work hard. There weren't any days off.

Q: Could you share an interesting fact about yourself or your career?
