"I was always scared of heights, so I'm not sure why I attended Airborne School. After a few jumps, that fear subsided a bit. Once I became a jumpmaster, I was hooked. Then it's not just a jump, it's an airborne operation. I could interact with the pilot and crew, I was responsible for the paratroopers onboard. My father was a paratrooper. At my graduation, he pinned his original airborne "wings" on my chest during the ceremony. I still have them. I am thankful that I made the decision to follow in my father's footsteps and join the Army. It instilled in me the values that shaped my life and my career and has molded me into the person I am today."
