Im Blake, 26 years old, currently Active Duty Air Force. Come from a family with history in the Marine Corps and Army, almost entirely grunts. I enlisted at 24 and shipped to basic at 25 years old, chose a relatively easy AFSC and thought it was the right move for my family (married, son). Like many young men, I envisioned being a warrior my entire youth, but when it came time to join I didn’t choose that route. I was at Keesler AFB for my tech school, and while we were marching to class one morning, I saw a group of young men, who turned out to be cones getting smoked at ATC course, get finished with a 7 mile run and head straight for the weight room. They had been up much earlier than us and hadn’t even had a meal yet. I knew immediately that I wanted to be with that group of men. Here I am!! i plan on crosstraining to Combat Control or Pararescue starting in Jan 2021, and have a goal to gain entrance to the 24th STS. I look forward to working/speaking with all of you.
