Todays interview is with John Williams who was an Apache pilot who did 3 tours in Iraq.

Where did you grow up?

I grew up in Tempe, Arizona

What was like for you before joining the military?

Before the military I enjoyed an adventurous childhood.  My parents and us 4 siblings were into hiking and camping.  In high school I was on the football team and I ran track.  It was a fun childhood but I knew I wanted to get out and see the world.

Which military branch did you choose and why?

I chose the Army because I knew that I wanted to be an apache pilot. And I figured there would be more opportunities for me in the Army. I had always been impressed with the apache and it’s capabilities. It’s the most advanced helicopter in the world and I wanted the challenge of becoming a pilot and performing at a high level.
