10 years in 30 seconds and a lot of horrible grammar…

 I met my wife Jocelyn during school at the U. Graduated with a degree in Physics and a commission as an Officer in the United States Air Force. In 2007 we packed up the house and moved to Edwards Air Force Base in California where I was assigned as a rocket propulsion physicist and worked on developing future rocket fuels. In 2009 I volunteered to fight the ground war in Afghanistan with the US ARMY where I embedded with and trained the Afghanistan National Army and the Afghanistan Border Police. It was truly a humbling experience to say the least. After returning we packed up again and moved to Laughlin Air Force Base in Texas where I trained in the T-38C Talon and earned my pilot wings as a military aviator. We were happy to finish up there and move on to our current home at Hurlburt Air Force Base in Florida. We call this one a hardship tour because its so hard to stay away from the beach. I’m currently assigned to the U-28A and do ? all over the world in places like ? and ?. It’s been a wild ride so far and I know I couldn’t have done it without the support of my best friend J and my family back home in SLC. Unfortunately we will not be able to make it back to celebrate the last ten with all the great peops from CHS…duty calls.
