Michael B. Macy, Searcy, AR/North Little Rock HUB
I joined the Air Force in 2010. April 20th, 2010 to be exact. Out of Rapid City, SD
Before I came into recruiting, I was a Pavements and Equipment Operator or Dirt Boy for short.
Some of my hobbies include video games, weightlifting, watching TV, spending time with family, and reading.
I enjoy the Air Force because it has provided me with the tools necessary to be successful in life. It has also provided a comfortable way of life for myself and my family. I would not be where I am at in life if it wasn't for the Air Force. Lastly, I enjoy the Air Force because of the people I have met while in service and have made lifelong friendships.
The Air Force has taught me how to never be complacent in life and always look to better myself. Whether that be going to school, volunteering in the community, or just seeking out opportunities to learn and advance my knowledge. Lastly, the Air Force has taught me how to be a leader, both professionally and personally.

SSgt Jeffrey Simcoe
My name is SSgt Jeffrey Simcoe, I am the active duty Air Force recruiter for Arkansas. I am based in North Little Rock and cover all Little Rock, Benton and Bryant high schools. I am originally from Texas so the south is nothing new to me. I enjoy the outdoors, shooting/hunting, working on my car and going to the gym. Prior to becoming a recruiter I worked as a firefighter in Civil Engineering. I enjoy recruiting because I get the opportunity to help people change their lives like mine was. The Air Force has taught me a lot over the years but the thing that stands out most is how quickly your life can change for the better.
