TSgt Rick Brooks
I'm Technical Sergeant Rick Brooks and I serve as an Active Duty Air Force Enlisted Accessions Recruiter for the greater Memphis area. Originally from the great state of Texas, I have served in a multitude of places in the United States and abroad. Prior to becoming a Recruiter, I worked as an Aircraft Structural Maintenance Craftsman where my duties included prioritizing and executing maintenance actions on a fleet of 64 bomber and cargo aircraft valued in excess of 12 billion dollars. Recruiting is much different than my original career field; however, it's just as rewarding, if not more so. I absolutely love helping people better their situations and see their transformation from everyday citizen to American Airman. Getting involved in the local community and networking with others also provides me an opportunity to give back while spreading awareness on the Air Force mission. I'm very excited to be in the Mid-South and look forward to assisting others pursue their goal of joining the world's greatest Air Force.
