Years in Service: 5 years

Why joined: I joined to serve my country.

Wife, Tech. Sgt. Vanessa Franseen, and my baby girl, Alessia

Hobbies: Triathlons, marathons and family time

Favorite aspect of job: Camaraderie and teamwork amongst all the different career fields at a MUNSS.

What award earned the flight: 52nd Fighter Wing Airman of the Year

Description of experience: It was a very physically demanding hour. However, I still got to see a lot of awesome sites, the castles along the Rhein and Mosel rivers, the rolling hills, and another F-16 flying right next to me. The pilots make it look easy, but it's not. I gained more respect for fighter pilots in a single hour than I have in five years.
