Amongst the hustle and bustle of pre-graduation jitters, SATs and ACTs, final exams and meeting graduation requirements, high school seniors have major life decisions to make.
Most decide between starting their career and going to college; but some make the decision to join the United States military.
Senior Master Sgt. Joey Meininger, now the 354th Civil Engineer Squadron deputy fire chief, then a 17-year-old boy straight out of high school, decided academics weren’t going to be in his future. He decided, after growing up with his dad in the military, the Air Force would be a good place to start.
