SCOTT AIR FORCE BASE, Ill. --

Welcome to your extended family Bryce Ossman.

Ossman recently raised his right hand, with some encouragement from his military family, and enlisted into the U.S. Air Force Reserve. He'll head off to BMT sometime in June.

"I'm not sure what I want to do later in life, but the Air Force gives me options, creates a solid foundation. I'll certainly use the college benefits," said Ossman.
