Hamilton completes basic training

Air Force Airman Brook A. Hamilton has graduated from basic military training at Lackland Air Force Base, San Antonio, Texas.

The airman completed an intensive, eight-week program that included training in military discipline and studies, Air Force core values, physical fitness and basic warfare principles and skills.

Airmen who complete basic training earn four credits toward an associate in applied science degree through the Community College of the Air Force.

He is the son of Doug and Carrie Hamilton of Ahwatukee Foothills and is a 2005 graduate of Desert Vista High School.

 

New service allows veterans to tell their story online

Thousands of active United States military personnel and veterans have specialized license plates signifying their service and sacrifice for our country. Over 65 million drivers on the road see those plates but have no idea the stories that are represented by the drivers or passengers in the vehicle.

Dr. Kevin Ross has been trying to bridge that gap for years, which led him to ask active U.S. military personnel and veterans about ways they can tell their stories to the millions of Americans who appreciate their service.

The new Web site, www.WhatsYourPlate.com, became the solution. The site is a national database of personalized license plates, where license plate holders can register their plates along with pictures and stories about themselves, their experiences and their vehicles. All U.S. military personnel (past and present) who have specialized plates are offered free registration and access to www.WhatsYourPlate.com as a small way to say thank you for their service to this country. Along with free registration, active U.S. military personnel and veterans will have unlimited access to search the database to see others' plates and stories.

The site is not just limited to military plates.

For more information, call Ross at (480) 580-7950 or visit www.WhatsYourPlate.com.
