"I've been in almost three years and I'm stationed here at Beale Air Force Base. My biggest dream was always to come to California, because I'm from the east coast. Since coming here, I've explored so much of what California has to offer. I think California is beautiful, and being able to go snowboarding and surfing in the same day is great because I like being outdoors and active. Working on Beale has provided me with skills for handling so many things, like active shooter scenarios. We are the first line of defense and when securing the entrances, we are ambassadors to people who have never been on a base or met military members. It's always a good feeling when I can make a person smile or make their day, but also make sure they feel secure."
