What do you like about working at the 445th?: The 445th Airlift Wing and the members that comprise this Airlift Wing are truly remarkable. The work ethic, as well as the standard of excellence that is upheld here makes me feel grateful to go to work every single day.
Why did you join the Air Force?: I knew from a relatively young age that I wanted to work in the medical field and that I wanted to help others. As I got older I started to consider the type of individuals I wanted to help most. When I saw the sacrifices that military members and their families made in regards to deployment and protecting the members of this country, I knew that’s where my passion lied. Being able to bring these members home safely to their families is the most rewarding career that I could ever ask for.
