Airman First Class Reece Hanchett, a Vehicle Operator from the 502 Logistics Readiness Squadron, JBSA-Lackland, looks back on that it was like to grow up in a broken home and wander the streets as a homeless teenager before finally finding direction and purpose as member of the United States Air Force.

"First Faces" began several years ago with chaplains from throughout AETC nominating Airmen from individual wings. Today, the program has expanded and includes a partnership between the chaplain's and public affairs offices, in order to reach a wider audience. Each Airman's story is a powerful way to infuse hope and build resilience. Airpower Starts Here!
