(Each week we will share a story of a Team Beale member through a candid photo, simple quote or 30 to 60 second video interview. The goal of this project is to provide a glimpse into the lives of the faces of Beale. It's the unique attributes, backgrounds and lifestyles of our Airmen that make us the world's greatest Air Force.)

Everyone has a story...we dare you to tell yours.

To see more Faces of Beale.
