I joined the Air Force (active duty) in October of 2001. I served three years on active duty before transitioning to the Maryland Air National Guard, where I still serve today. I have been a crew chief my entire Air Force career, having maintained F-15C and A-10C aircraft. I utilized my GI Bill and Air National Guard tuition assistance to earn a bachelor's degree in criminal justice from the University of Baltimore and a master's degree in forensic investigations from Stevenson University. In January of this year I started my current career with the U.S. Office of Personnel Management as a background investigator. I love my job and my military skills have greatly enhanced my ability to adapt to this new career. My supervisor is also a veteran and has been very understanding and accommodating of my current Air National Guard commitments. I love my new job as I have a great amount of flexibility and I get to talk to different people from all walks of life every day. As I progress in my career there will be opportunities for international TDY's which I am excited about. I believe this job in particular is well suited for former military members because there is a great deal of responsibility and daily decision making that veterans are comfortable with thereby making it an easy transition. I would recommend this position to any veteran!
