Congratulations to Capt Kristin Russell!
San Diego State Universityâ€™s Detachment 075â€™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 (firstname.lastname@example.org ) for this opportunity that is a direct result of her hard work and outstanding officer performance.
