What do you like about the 445th: The 445th Airlift Wing provides me with the opportunity to learn firsthand from highly experienced maintainers that push me to improve everyday as a technician and a leader. The 445th also blesses me with the opportunity to travel to new places and meet people from many different backgrounds.

Why did you joint the Air Force? Since I was a kid, I had a passion for military technology and aircraft. Some of my coolest memories were playing outside as a kid and seeing the ginormous C-5 fly over my backyard. When my father informed me that the 445th Airlift Wing had an opportunity for me to perform my dream job while staying in my hometown, I could not say no.
