He entered as a young Airman and emerged a fully qualified loadmaster on the C-17A, completing seven years of active duty service.
Today, he serves as a Reservist as he pursues his undergraduate degree in Sports Administration at The Citadel with the hope of becoming either an NBA official or an Athletic Director. In this interview, Staff Sergeant Rogers discusses the true nature if his experience growing up, the mentors who influenced his life, the family he has at home as well as his extended family in the Air Force, and the passion and path God has revealed to him. His story shows the many ways that he wishes to make a difference.
