"My favorite experience since I've been in the Air Force was arriving at Dover, being welcomed to the flight with open arms and knowing that my career was about to start.

I like the fact that I am responsible for the fuel getting onto the aircraft. It's a real humbling experience knowing that I am a piece of the puzzle that allows the aircraft to fly and get the mission done.

I feel like I fit into the Air Force as part of a family. I'm always learning, engaging and following and being molded into the leader I will become later on in my career.

The Air Force to me brings a bright future into my life, so much brighter than I would have had as a civilian before I joined.

Stepping off that bus at basic training was one of the best decisions that happened in my life. The Air Force has shown me that I do fit in and that I am part of the Team Dover and LRS family"
