Being in the Air Force, I had learned in the last six years what it takes to maintain a healthy and productive lifestyle. I had learned to help others, follow, and lead to the best of my ability. I understand very well and able adapt to many environments. The most difficult thing about my career field as a Security Forces member would be the long work hours and all of the physical training. I understood that it came with the territory, therefore at the same time it also became my most enjoyable part. Learning responsibility as a young adult was also a little tough because I deployed early and had the biggest responsibility of my life. I knew lives were at stake and it was also the best feeling to know I was taking care of people, not just as fellow co-workers but as human beings (family).
