PA and recruiting welcome another Air Force Reserve Command member

Patriotism...some wave a flag, some join the military, and these moments in life are extra special when a person raises their right hand and agrees to "support and defend the Constitution of the United States, against all enemies, foreign and domestic". Here, 932nd Airlift Wing Chief of Public Affairs, Lt. Col. Stan Paregien stands by the American flag immediately following the oath of enlistment for Erik Bedenfield, who enlisted into the United States Air Force Reserve at Scott Air Force Base, Illinois. The ceremony took place Dec. 14, 2017, in the 932nd AW headquarters, and was facilitated by the background work of recruiter Tech. Sgt. Nikki Seibel, seen here witnessing the event next to Bedenfield. For others interested in joining they can contact the recruiting office at (618)-229-7077 or toll free 1-800-257-1212.
