Why is serving in the Air Force important to you?
Serving in the Air Force is very important to me because it's been a life-long dream. As a child, I was fascinated with aviation and frequently attended annual airshows just north of my hometown. As I grew up, my cousin joined the Air Force in July 2004 and became an air traffic controller. He was my role model and I always kept in touch with him throughout his career. I asked him many questions, and his only response was, "Look for a job that translates into civilian life easily and do something you will enjoy." I took his advice, and I started talking with local recruiters. After graduating high school in 2013, I made my decision about joining the Air Force and I signed an aerospace maintenance contract. Knowing I had a great chance to be an aviation mechanic, I couldn't believe I was about to fulfill my life-long childhood dream.
What accomplishment during your Air Force career are you most proud of?
I am most proud of achieving quality assurance honor roll and going temporary duty as a three-level.
What are your personal and/or professional goals?
My personal and professional goals are to work toward my Community College of the Air Force degree and earn a dedicated crew chief/flying crew chief position.
What is your favorite part of your job?
My favorite part of my job is flying!
How does the individual portray that core value?
"Airmen Sargent hit the ground running from the first day he arrived from technical training," said Tech. Sgt. David Carlton, 100th Aircraft Maintenance Squadron crew chief section chief from Pascoag, R.I. "As a three-level, Sargent has displayed the characteristics of a seasoned Air Force professional with unwavering consistency. In a maintenance world supporting real-world missions on a daily basis, it's almost unheard of to send a three-level on a TDY off-station. Our missions demand we send trustworthy, competent, and outgoing technicians to get the job done away from home station with little to no support, and Sargent fits this billet in every way! Everything he does on a daily basis is completed in a timely and efficient manner with little to no guidance needed.
