When I started at the 349th Air Mobility Wing as a non-prior service Airman more than 15 years ago, I really had no idea what being in the Reserves was all about. When I showed up on my very first day at the hospital auditorium as a newly-minted major, a master sergeant pulled me aside and helped me reorganize my blues – I had put everything on the jacket backwards! Yes, I was just a touch nervous. I soon discovered that those in my squadron were always willing to help me, no matter what our rank. I just had to ask. I asked a lot of everyone all the time. But that is how one learns. We are a team.
