#ThrowBackThursday: From Trainee to Airman

Age: 19

Year: 2002

Where: Photobooth inside the mall, San Antonio, Texas. 

Who I was then: Newly graduated from USAF Basic Training, courtesy of the 321st Squadron aka "Hotel Hell", Flight 106. Also: 4th Element Leader. Officially an "Airman", no longer "Trainee Dudley". 


I was taking this step into my new life & career (and this accomplishment) quite seriously.
