    What inspired you to get involved with RAD?
    “I want to see Airmen better themselves outside of the work place and become better overall leaders and people.”

    How are you feeling about the 4 Days Ruck and what challenges are you anticipating?
    “I'm excited! The team has put in tons of hard work and for a wide group of Airmen to work together to walk 80 miles in three days through heat, rain, and hills was the ultimate test. My challenge was leading them without a lot of background on what we were doing and how. It was tough to navigate through the travel and small details when I also have never traveled to Holland for this challenge in person. I wanted to do everything in my power to ensure that Rapid Airman Development's first capstone event was a success."
