I am active duty Air Force currently in specialized training for my job in law enforcement.

I had heard about Sgt. Landsberry when the news of Sparks broke out, and my heart sank (yet was very proud of his heroic actions) when I heard of his passing. I never knew him, but I did lose a Brother in Arms. That's enough for me to mourn.

Well, it's a week later and I'm working on some speaking topics for this class, and discovered an article on Sgt Landsberry which included his military history. My eyes watered up. Looking at his life and everything he was trying to accomplish - which seemed to mirror my own life and ambitions (military brat; active duty; deployments) - there was a very profound connection; and I even more now consider this man a hero even more beyond measure than I first thought.

I too want to be a First Sergeant and believe in the power of mentorship and education. So to see that this man was working towards those goals and had dedicated a lifetime of service to not just his country but to educating the youth of America? Damn... He's the man, seriously.

I will remember his story. If anything, it has lit a new fire within to ensure that I continue serving to the utmost of my ability; to make sure I work towards making a positive difference in this generation and future generations of Airmen. But that's not just for me; it's going to be for all those guys before me doing their thing. For guys like Sgt Landsberry. I want to make men like him proud.
