“I grew up in Texas, on the farm and on the football field. I was a high-energy kid, played football pretty well, and made good grades,” recalled Lt. Col. Brandon Sokora, 100th Civil Engineer Squadron commander, as he opened up about his story and how his life drastically changed when confronted with “disabilities” – not once, but twice. As his story unfolded, he focused on how his perspective evolved to grant him a more inclusive and healthy approach to leadership and Airmanship. With his abilities and opportunities, Sokora described how in no way, shape or form would anyone have predicted his future to include the word, ‘disability.’ He just assumed, “that will never happen to me.”

American Airmen don’t have to be born on U.S. soil; it’s what their character is made of that gives them integrity first, allows them to put service before self, and makes them strive for excellence in all they do. Various cultures and backgrounds make the Air Force stronger and provide the framework for its strong diversity.

Col. Thomas Torkelson, 100th Air Refueling Wing commander, accepted the Air Force Historical Foundation’s Doolittle Award for the 100th ARW’s sustained and significant contributions to Air Force history Sept. 27, 2016, in Arlington, Virginia. The award is named after the pioneering pilot Gen. James Harold “Jimmy” Doolittle, whose career stretched from World War I to the height of the Cold War. His most famous mission was when he led a bomb raid over Tokyo in 1942, which was the first American attack on the Japanese mainland. Doolittle’s 16 aircraft dropped their bombs, but because they didn’t have enough fuel to return to their aircraft carrier, the pilots flew on and had to crash-land in China and the Soviet Union.
