Why did you choose to join the military? My father was most influential in my decision to join the military. He spoke highly of his time in the Army and promised a good life and priceless experiences if I decided to join the service. After serving in the Air Force for over 15 years, I must say, he was right. During my career, I've met many interesting people, visited lots of beautiful places, and experienced a vast array of cultures which have certainly made my time in the military amazing.
What is your job and how does that impact the mission? I am currently assigned as the major command non-appropriated funds financial analyst. My job is to provide oversight for funds and to ensure monies are utilized properly. NA funds are vital to assisting with operation of the child-care centers, base lodging and much more, which all directly contribute to our Airman and their families.
