Name -- Airman 1st Class Jacqueline Jones 

Position -- customer service representative 

Unit -- 81st Mission Support Squadron 

Military service -- two years 

Time at Keesler -- two years. This is my first assignment, and my whole personnel class was stationed here with me. 

Hometown -- Virginia Beach, Va. Why did you join the Air Force? I joined the Air Force to make something of myself. The opportunites in Virginia are few which makes the crime rates high. A lot of my peers have decided to be in the negative light and I felt the Air Force would steer me in the right direction and serve as an example to my hometown that there's so much more to the world than just your local neighborhood activities. 

What are your short- and long-term goals? My short term goal is to better myself as an Airman and young adult -- each day I'm taught better ways to go into situation and learn to have a positve attitude no matter the situation, which is improving my life skills. My long term goal is to become a Air Force chief -- I know I'm on my way. I started my college education, and with my co-workers leading me into the right direction, I see a bright future. 

What are your hobbies? I love to play the piano. I take lessons every week and soon I'll invest in my own instrument. 

Your favorite quote? "Life is reality without an eraser." I don't know who said it, but it means a lot to me -- taking each day and making the best out of it, and when it's done, having no regrets because you know you put your all in doing it.
