Today’s #VeteranOfTheDay is Air Force Veteran Meg Parrish Miner
Recruited by the Air Force, Meg joined the military straight out of high school, enticed by the chance to leave her small town, get an education, and hold the impressive-sounding title of jet engine mechanic–despite having zero background in any kind of mechanics. The sixteen years she spent in the military–including with the famous Thunderbird division, and then working on F-16s while stationed in Turkey following the Gulf War–proved to be eye-opening, as she had hoped.
Thank you for your service, Meg!
