I enlisted in the Army in August of 2017 as a 15P (Aviation Operations Specialist). I graduated from Ukiah High School class of 2017. I joined the Army because everyone I knew was going to the Mendocino Junior College and I knew I wanted to do something different. I was at school and had spoken with the Army recruiter during lunch and the next day went into their office here in Ukiah and talked about my opportunities. I attended Basic Combat Training at Fort Jackson, South Carolina and went to job training at Fort Rucker, Alabama. I am currently stationed overseas in South Korea enjoying the environment. We train hard but we do get time off to go out and experience the culture and travel throughout this beautiful country.
