Congratulations to Capt Kristin Russell!

San Diego State University’s Detachment 075’s own Capt Kristin Russell and our Chapter Treasurer was selected to cross-train from Cyberspace Operations to attend USAF Undergraduate Flight Training (UFT)! 
Not only that, she was competitively selected to attend the prestigious Euro-NATO Joint-Jet Pilot Training (ENJJPT), which only 7 officers out of the 117 UFT-selects from this board were picked for! 
The Chapter passes along our hearty congratulations to Kristin ( ) for this opportunity that is a direct result of her hard work and outstanding officer performance.
