I enjoyed my time in the Air Force. I was blessed with many great opportunities to learn and improve myself. Not only did I learn how to fight fires and perform rescues, I was also able to improve my personal traits (discipline, leadership, teamwork, etc). At the fire department we responded mostly to aircraft emergencies and medical emergencies. In addition to those we also had some structural, hazardous material and automobile emergencies. My co-workers were great people and I am grateful to have had the opportunity to work with them. I enjoyed the training I received the most of all but I am also taking pleasure in the benefits I received from the military.
