What has been the most impactful moment in your career so far?

I haven't been in too long so I don't have much, but I remember getting my name tape sewn onto my uniform being a big moment for me and then seeing my parents at my basic military training graduation.

I love the outdoors, hunting, fishing, hiking, video games and hanging out with friends.

Simply do the best I can, graduate, and then take what I learned here and do the best I can at my first duty station.
