Jayhawk Spotlight – Airman 1st Class Daelyn Haskins

Rank and name: Airman 1st Class Daelyn Haskins

Year I joined 184 WG: September 2017

Organization: 134th Air Control Squadron

My story: I grew up with my dad being in the Air Force so I saw firsthand the organization and discipline the military had to offer. I decided during high school that I was going to take my own path and go to college for athletic training. After two years of college I realized college is expensive. I decided to join the military to get college paid for. I waited four months to go to BMT and after finishing BMT seeing how proud my dad was with me crossing that blue line I decided to make the most out of the military and stay in for as long as the Air Force will keep me.

I still plan on going back to college and getting my degree so that I can take the step towards commissioning. I had to wait over a year to make it to tech school which has really slowed me down in returning to college and getting my commission. I am grateful for everything my family has done for me to get me where I am today. I am honored to have been awarded the Airman of the Quarter award and I plan on doing my best in the Air Force and making a positive name for myself and my family. e
