BEALE AIR FORCE BASE, Calif. --
"When I came into the Air Force I was originally trying to become a pararescueman. I eventually self-eliminated during the process. After that I was given the opportunity to change jobs and became a medical technician. I have really enjoyed it, and recently started working on the ambulance at the fire station. Normally we get less than one call a day, but when we do go out I enjoy the chance to get to help someone. I haven’t had to experience a serious situation yet, but helping people still gives you a sense of fulfillment. I still want to give being a pararescueman another try. I have been doing a lot of swimming and running as well as training my mind so I have more confidence and mental strength. I am going to put my package in soon to try and crosstrain."
