Joshua Lee Benson, Aviation Resource Management, 811 Operations Support Squadron.

-What's your hometown city and state (and country, if not U.S.)?

Chester, Pennsylvania

-What's the coolest thing you've done in the military? 

I received an incentive flight in an F-16 because of my daily job accomplishments in my squadron.

I like to play sports, camp, hunt, drive and I'd also like to work on my private pilot's license.

Being able to teach and raise children is my biggest challenge.  I believe they teach you something every day about yourself and you could miss the lesson if you're not careful.
