Thursday, October 28, 2004

Air National Guard Airman 1st Class Travis R. Swing has graduated from basic military training at Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio.

Swing is the son of Jeff Swing of Last Frontier Circle, Eielson Air Force Base, Alaska, and the grandson of Lee and Dee Mears of Horseshoe Bend.

During the six weeks of training, the airman studied the Air Force mission, organization, and military customs and courtesies; performed drill and ceremony marches; received physical training, rifle marksmanship, field training exercises; and received special training in human relations.

In addition, airmen who complete basic training earn credits toward an associate degree through the Community College of the Air Force.

Swing is a 2004 graduate of Ben Eielson High School, Eielson Air Force Base.
