United States Air Force
I hail from the Motor City, born and raised. From a very young age I knew I wanted to serve my country and see the world. Where better to accomplish my goals than joining the Air Force. I enlisted after high school and was ecstatic when I learned my first duty station would be England. My early years in the Air Force were a combination of defending the country and traveling England and Europe every chance I got. I was blessed with five additional duty stations during my 20 years of service, with each location better than the one before.
As a Health Services Management Craftsman, 4A0, I was trained for all things administrative in a clinic or hospital. I spent many years in Medical Readiness and was selected to deploy in support of Operation Desert Storm. I would not change my time and experiences in Saudi Arabia. I deployed with some of America’s finest and bravest. My Air Force training prepared me for the numerous opportunities I encountered.
I have many favorite memories with friends who have become like family. As Retirees, some have settled back home, some are near their last assignment, but we are never far apart. My final assignment brought me to Texas.
