"The Air Force has transformed my confidence in my ability to pursue my educational and professional goals. I went from a College Drop out to having 2 Degrees-Debt Free! I also really value the security the Air Force provides to my Family so they can also fulfill their educational & career aspirations. Not to mention we get to see some pretty cool places along the way. The Air Force has taught me "You are capable of more than you know, and self-doubt does not have to be a limiting or defining factor."
