United States Air Force


“Being in the Air Force means you’re going to travel. I’ve been to the thirty or forty different countries across the world.”


“My favorite part of the Air Force is mentoring Airmen from all walks of life.”


“The Air Force provides great benefits for the enlisted and officer side. Through tuition assistance, we get money to cover what it costs to get your next degree.”


“My favorite part is knowing that I am doing something for our country. I am actually doing something for a purpose.”


“I joined the Air Force because I wanted to leave the South Side of Chicago and also pursue my education.”


“It was a steady job right out of high school and you’ve got that ability to grow a career early on as opposed to going to a four-year college and then starting over from there.”


“It doesn’t really make a difference [being a woman in the Air Force], you know what I mean? Everyone treats me with respect. I personally love it because I can prove that I can do anything a man can do.”


“My favorite part about the Air Force is the job I’m doing. I mean, I come to work every day and I work with dogs and I absolutely love it.” TC mark

Poetry that will change you

This is for the women who are first to get naked, howl at the moon and jump into the sea. This is for the women who seek relentless joy; the ones who know how to laugh with their whole souls. The women who speak to strangers because they have no fear in their hearts. This is for the women who drink coffee at midnight and wine in the morning, and dare you to question it. This is for the women who throw down what they love, and don’t waste time following society’s pressures to exist behind a white picket fence. The women who create wildly, unbalanced, ferociously and in a blur at times. This — is for you.

“When Janne has a new poem written, I shut my life down to do nothing but read it, and then when I turn my life back on, everything is better.” — James Altucher
