Air Force impacts Airmen 70 years and counting

“My favorite part about the Air Force is the history and heritage, and the brotherhood that we have. As an aircrew member, we are not just Airmen but we are family. We are on the road with each other and are in each other’s lives more than just nine-to-five. There are times where we’re together for more than 75 hours a week. The Air Force has taught me to be selfless, to put others ahead of myself whether it be co-workers or their family members. The Air Force has taught me that I’m a part of something greater than myself. I represent not only myself but my family name and my squadron. Serving in the Air Force to me means a lot. It means I am able to protect and serve not only my fellow countrymen, but those who are unable to protect and serve themselves.” – U.S. Air Force Senior Airman Crystal Reese, 37th Airlift Squadron aircraft loadmaster.
