932nd Airlift Wing welcomes Airman back through Illinois recruiters

Family showed up to witness Lt. Col. Stan Paregien perform the oath of enlistment for Bernard Collins, as his recruiting specialist, Tech Sgt. Brittany Paus looks on in background. "This is my WHY...Today is proof... When you Fight the Good Fight for others... The ripple of victory does follow," said 932nd Airlift Wing recruiter Tech Sgt. Brittany Paus. This veteran and his family patiently trusted the administrative process, which took about two years from when they started his application. "I am so grateful to welcome back Tech Sgt Collins and his family to service! Every enlistment means a great deal, being a small vessel towards life changing chapters. Moments like these, simply reinforce the humble honor the role of 'Recruiter' truly is," Paus added. Congratulations Tech. Sgt. Brittany Paus on her background work on behalf of Sergeant Collins and the Collins Family as he starts his next chapter as a Citizen Airman and Air Reserve Technician in the maintenance world!
