82nd Training Wing
An Airman who is in technical training at Sheppard Air Fore Base, Texas, for aircraft electrical and environmental systems draws his inspiration from his mother, a Soldier who was killed in Iraq.
Airman Treyton-Thomas Juopperi joined the Air Force a few months ago despite having lost his mother during her last tour in Iraq. He was shattered by her death, he said, but her memory inspired him to follow in her footsteps.
