As you may or may not know, I’ve been a member of the United States Air Force for the last 20 years. Truth be told, a military career was never in my plans, but desperate times and a lack of direction demanded action. I joined to gain a skill, re-enlisted to complete my education, then ultimately stayed because I found the life suited my family and I.
The Air Force has been very good to us. We’ve seen a lot of places and done many things we would not ordinarily have the opportunity to do. We plan on staying in as long as we enjoy it, and the Air Force allows us to stay.
I am particularly interested in my career field’s history. The Biomedical Equipment Technician (BMET) career field predates the Air Force, going as far back as the late 30’s in the US Army. From a strictly Air Force perspective, I’ve compiled information about the technical school, BMET leadership, promotion history, and Air Force Medical Service Awards.
If you see an error or have more information to share, by all means let me know!
