Focusing on your Quality of Life
How many times have you heard the phrase, “We recruit Airmen and retain the family?” As an Airman who recently celebrated my 25th anniversary in the USAF, I can tell you two things with absolute certainty. First, I never imagined that I would turn a four year enlistment into a 20 something year career. Second, the outstanding quality of life the Air Force provided me and my family made it easy to reenlist over and over again.

The air is thick with anticipation as the instructor completes his safety briefing.

In the twilight hours amidst the rural farm fields of East Anglia, an HH-60G Pave Hawk slowly moves in to place on a taxiway.

As the thirsty helicopter idles on the runway and finishes refilling, it rolls onto the taxiway as another moves deftly into place for the cycle to begin again.
