We love saluting our members of the military, especially when it's a kid from Bangor!

Congratulations to U.S. Air Force National Guard Airman 1st Class Jacob T. King, a 2017 graduate of Bangor High School, and now a graduate of basic military training at Joint Base San Antonio-Lackland, San Antonio, Texas!

According to a press release from the U.S. Department of Defense, "airmen who complete basic training also earn four credits toward an associate in applied science degree through the Community College of the Air Force."
