Unit: 52nd Logistics Readiness Squadron
Duty title: Logistics planner
Hometown: Colorado Springs, Colo.
Years in Service: Two and a half years
Why joined: I joined to continue my family's service in the Air Force. My father and grandfather both served in the Air Force. I have always felt that it is every young man's duty to do their part in defense of the United States. Also, it is a great opportunity to see the world.
Family: My wife, Heather, and 5 year old daughter, Brooklynn.
Hobbies: I enjoy riding motorcycles, playing basketball, gaming, and traveling.
Favorite aspect of job: Logistic plans cannot be copy and pasted from day-to-day. Each day presents unique challenges and opportunities to find solutions in daily deployment operations.
