Air Force: Staff Sergeant Jeffrey Huber, 29, originally from Cresson, Pa.

Why did you decide to join the Air Force and what is the best thing about your career? “I joined the Air Force to better my life. I have a long line of family in the Armed services, dating back to WWI, and I wanted to keep the Huber name fighting to defend this nation. The part that I love the most about being a Recruiter is going into the community and changing someone’s life. This job is very rewarding when we have young men and women who step up to the plate and make the decision to follow in the footsteps of the men and women who served before. It makes you feel that you are making a difference in the world.”

Do you feel it is important for Americans, both young and old, to serve their country? Why? “I do believe it is important for Americans to serve. Basic military training is a transition from civilian life to military life. Serving gives an American a new appreciation and respect for this country. It makes someone walk taller, have more confidence and conduct themselves in a respectful manner.”

What was your favorite subject in school? “I went to Admiral Perry Vo-Tec for Marketing. I loved taking that class for two years. My teacher Rosemary Williamson had a huge effect on my life and she is one of the people that I thought about when I made the decision to join the Air Force. It was a fun, open style class where we got our work done and had fun while we were learning. We were also afforded the opportunity to travel with DECA (Distributive Education Clubs of America), which for a 17- year-old it was awesome having some freedom.”

Do you have any advice for kids and teens who think they might want to join the Air Force after school? “My advice is to concentrate on school, stay out of trouble and watch who you hang out with. The biggest piece of advice for them is if you are interested please contact me SSgt Huber at 570.840.9871.”
