A1C – Brooke Sanchez

Having a grandfather who was a chief in the Air Force, two brothers who are serving in the Army, and attending a military high school, A1C Sanchez was accustomed to the structure and discipline of the military prior to joining. Upon completing high school, A1C Sanchez knew enlisting in the United States Air Force was the best decision and was excited to continue along a familiar path within her family and make them proud. After attending the recruiting seminar at Basic Military Training. She learned the impact Honor Guard has on families and the roles they fill in various ceremonies, she was inclined to volunteer. She looked forward to the opportunity to represent the Air Force and be a part of an elite unit. While being in the Honor Guard A1C Sanchez hopes to inspire others and be a positive role model to younger Airman.

Short term goals of A1C Sanchez consist of becoming fully qualified within the Firing party element, improving her communication skills, reading one book a month, and begin working towards a degree in Veterinary Technology.

GUARDSMAN SPOTLIGHT | For this week’s highlight;
From Barre, Vermont
SSgt – Alexandria Piper

Having several family members who are serving and who have served in the military, SSgt Piper was motivated to follow suit. She was also seeking to obtain financial support and to successfully pay off her student loans. While serving in the Air Force she was selected to come to the Honor Guard through the DSD (Developmental Special Duty) program. With the understanding that the Honor Guard would consist of Airmen from a variety of different AFSC’s who possess different backgrounds and perspectives, she would like to gain a broader perspective and learn as much as possible to support her personal and professional growth.

Being one of 6 women who have been a part of Drill Team since 1989, SSgt Piper’s short term goals consist of encouraging more women to try out for Drill Team and become the first woman to be a part of the 4-member team sequence. Some long term goals of SSgt Piper consist of completing her CCAF in Criminal Justice and pursuing her Masters in Art Therapy. She plans to retire after serving 20 years in the Air Force and moving back to her home state to become a State Trooper.

Outside of SSgt Pipers continued efforts towards diversifying Drill Team and developing her education she enjoys Woodworking, Art, and being outdoors.

GUARDSMAN SPOTLIGHT | For this week’s highlight;
From Orlando, Florida
Airman 1st Class – Nautica Cunningham

Making a difference not only in herself, but as well as the world around her was the motivating force of Airman Cunningham’s decision to enlist in the United States Air Force. Having little drive in life prior to her military service and struggling to remain financially stable would motivate her to succeed. During her time in service thus far, her accomplishments and pride have allowed her to exceed standards. After hearing about the strenuous tech school for Honor Guard during Basic Military Training, she was intimidated but immediately driven to join and has had the opportunity to push herself past her limits to not only prove to herself but others that she is capable. With the continuous support of her Mom, Airman Cunningham knew she would come out mentally and physically stronger.

Short term goals of Airman Cunningham consist of being more involved with community service efforts, becoming fully qualified within the Colors element, and broadening her culinary arts knowledge as she enjoys baking. Some long terms goals of hers comprise of obtaining a degree in physical therapy, learning both French and Spanish, and buying her Mom her dream house.

When Airman Cunningham is not volunteering, baking, or excelling at work she enjoys spending time roller skating, playing the piano, and hiking. Due to COVID-19 she has found new interests like becoming competent in playing the ukulele.
