During the period from August 2001 to August 2010, I was a F-15C Pilot. I was stationed in England, Alaska, Florida, and Japan. I upgraded from Wingman to Instructor pilot while at Lakenheath, England. While at Alaska I attended the U.S. Air Force Weapons Instructor Course. At Eglin AFB, Fl I became the Assistant Director of Operations for both the 60th and 58th Fighter Squadron, responsible for squadron scheduling, training, and aircraft utilization. Finally, I was stationed in Japan as the Chief of Wing Weapons & Tactics where I coordinated with joint services, Korean and Japanese Nationals, and local governemnts for the defense and stability of the Pacific Region.
