GOODFELLOW AIR FORCE BASE, Texas --
Lance Cpl. Stephanie Napier, Marine Corps Detachment at Goodfellow trainee, is the Goodfellow Student of the Month Spotlight for January, a series highlighting exceptional airmen, soldiers, sailors and marines.
17th Training Wing Public Affairs: What led you to join the military?
I came from a family of military, and I realized I wanted to get out of my town. This was the way to do it, to travel and help protect the U.S.
What has been the most impactful moment in your career so far?
Being at school here was a real eye opener. It was enough freedom, but it was very hard and taxing. And it is not like high school where you can skate right through. It is hours of studying with your peers, without your peers, testing and realizing what you got wrong.
What are your hobbies?
I like playing volleyball and working out, I’m always outside […], hiking, fishing and hunting. I do it all.
What do you want to accomplish during your time here at Goodfellow Air Force Base?
I just won the Marine of the Quarter award board. I also got my grey belt from [Marine Corps martial art training].
Is there any advice or anything extra you would like to share?
Make the most out of coming here. A lot of people come here thinking that it is just a small town and it is going to suck. Just make the most of it. If you stay positive, you are going to have a fine time here. And you will be out before you know it.
