This is his story.
What do you remember about your first day working with the aircraft?
“I had never seen a fighter aircraft in person before and I remember the first day that our class walked into the hanger and you have an F-15 and an F-16 staring at you. It was pretty surreal to know that’s what I would be working on every day.”
What does it mean to you, personally, in doing this job?
“Whenever the days are getting long and it's crunch time to get a jet fixed, I always think about [troops] on the ground who are counting on these aircraft to come and save their lives.”
