Airman of the Month Quote: Life has thrown me a lot of curve balls. Just when I thought I was up, I would get knocked back down. But I learned to keep going. I would detour if I needed to but would never stop. Even when I was at my lowest point I never stopped. My advice is no matter how hard life gets, no matter how many curves it throws at you, no matter what is going on that makes you want to quit and give up, keep moving forward.
