What you like about working at the 445th?: The people here are an extended family who support you in progressing in your military career and in life.
Why did you join the Air Force?: I wanted to join the Air Force after taking four years of Junior ROTC in high school. I was offered a Disney college program and routed my career path to Orlando and ASL interpreting. After nine years or working at Walt Disney World and the Orlando area I moved back to Ohio and decided to complete a previous goal: joining the Air Force Reserve in the medical field.
