2 years and 2 months

Exactly two years ago, as of today, I graduated Basic Military Training and truly began my Air Force career. There have been tons of us and downs, but I am extremely grateful for this life changing journey.

I feel that the military has provided me with an outlet to shine. There are so many accomplishments that I can look back on and be extremely proud of…starting with the fact that I graduated BMT.

bmtThis was the most proud and exciting day of my life! Plus, my whole family came down to see me!

bmt 2Then, of all of the bases in America that I had dreamt about going to….I got told the Air Force was sending me to Japan.  This was pretty exciting, but also completely nerve-wracking. But, I packed up my stuff and began my adventure.

bmt 4Along the way, I have made a pretty awesome Command Post family…

bmt 6I even got some super hot military outfits to wear 😉

bmt 7One of my favorite achievements in the AF was when I went from Airman First Class Collins to Senior Airman Collins.

bmt 8Now, I am waiting for the next move in my military career…PCSing to Albuquerque, New Mexico. I am pretty excited about it because I have heard there is some INCREDIBLE food there. (holler back chile)

I also enjoyed the fact that I found out I won Airman of the Quarter for the Wing Staff Agencies on the two year anniversary of my graduation from BMT! It just reminds me of how much I have grown professionally and personally.

From the new kid on the block that is graduating BMT, still scared to death of the Air Force and growing up to a confident, healthy and kick-ass Airman!
