Between October 2008 and November 2012, I was Active Duty in the United States Air Force as a Non-Communications Electronic Signals Analyst. I was stationed in the United Kingdom and Virginia, deploying to South Korea and Japan. Throughout my Active Duty service I was awarded many honors, including a Joint Service Commendation Medal, Joint Service Achievement Medal, Air Force Achievement Medal, and an Expeditionary Airman of the Quarter Award. While stationed in Virginia and deployed, I had the great honor of working with the F-22 Raptor.
After my Active Duty service, I joined the US Air Force Reserves, where I spent two years, 2013-2014, training as an instructor and performing instructor duties at Goodfellow Air Force Base, TX. The position I had been filling was terminated due to budget cuts, at which point I decided to end my service. From my combined service I have acquired skills and experiences beyond explanation.
