After spending their entire college career at ASU preparing for this moment with the Air Force ROTC Detachment 847,it finally arrived.
2nd Lt Lia Amilia-Weston says, "I can't even believe that I'm here today, cant' believe it's true. "
It became a reality for these four newly commissioned 2nd Lt's to the United States Air Force at their Commissioning Oath ceremony Friday morning at the Angelo State University Center. With the support of loved ones and friends, these four airmen were pinned.
"I want to make a difference and I'm trying to serve not only just my Country but also my family since I'll be the first one in my family to go into the military," says 2nd Lt Mario Antonio Sauceda.
2nd Lt. Omar Shere Johnson, "I come from a place that there wasn't that there wasn't much hope for a lot of people like me, and I got into college, I was in foster care and I stuck with it, and showed everyone else that it's possible."
Now that their ROTC days are over, these 2nd Lt's will be going to their first call of duty, using the skills that they learned in college that prepared them to be leaders in the military.
"So looking forward to be like a leader. I'm really excited to be leading by example," Weston says.
"Wherever I go and the Airforce sends me, I want to do the best," 2nd Lt John David Shaw says.
