How does the individual portray the core value?
“I believe in the 913th Airlift Group mission and I’m committed to my 913th Airlift Group family. I recently moved to Mississippi to finish college, commuting to Little Rock Air Force Base one weekend per month to fulfill my military obligation. I have accomplished four associates’ degrees, all while working multiple jobs, in addition to the Air Force Reserve. I never turn down any assignments my leadership delegates to me, and I look forward to many more.”
