Typical day: Arrive at work 15 minutes early have a morning briefing then work. I learned how to apply myself in different scenarios with different people.Whether it was training personnel, implementing and Air Force wide change to our equipment, or adapting to the new work environment in different duty locations and doing the same thing. Managing anything can be difficult if you do not have the experience and guidance of a trainer or manager. I was successfully able to be trained and become an expert in management and logistics. The hardest part of the job for me was the initial culture shock of moving to different countries or duty locations. Learning how they operated or their way of life sometimes disagreed with what I was taught but I quickly learned to adapt. The Most enjoyable part of the job was also the hardest. Which was traveling. Moving every few years to a new land was exhilarating.
