Featured Nominee

Robrandon Bee
Master Seargent Robrandon Lee
Veteran | 23 years in the U.S. Air Force

 

What did you do in the service?

My first 4 years in, I did Production Management. 2 years of that, I managed tracking and scheduling maintenance for A-10 and F-16 jet engines. The next 2 years, I tracked and scheduled maintenance for F-15s while also scheduling the jet’s availability to allow pilots to maintain their flight proficiency. The next 20.5 years, I performed a litany of jobs within the communications field. I installed, maintained, and managed networking devices (routers & switches), telephone switches, IT project management and quality assurance.

What was the biggest reason that led you to join the military?

My brother was in the Marines and I initially wanted to follow his footsteps, but he told me I should got into the Air Force. I went to college for a year then decided to take his suggestion.

What advice would you give to others transition into civilian life?

Be prepared for a new challenge. Be understanding that the environment will be different than what you may be used to, sometimes a little more laxed and care-free. Everyone may not be as focused on the goal as you so be patient and do not get frustrated.

What should you consider before deciding to serve your country?

You may not have control of where you move to or what job you are required to perform. You will be people working for you and those whom you work for that challenge you but know there will always be a change so be patient and just learn and grow. There will be great opportunities, feeling just out of your reach, but do not let that stop you. Travel when you can, involve yourself in the community every place you go and challenge yourself to learn as much as you can.
