McChord Reservist's hard work pays off

Airman 1st Class Glenn Bartle, 728th Airlift Squadron, holds his Basic Military Training Honor Graduate coin at the 446th Airlift Wing's Headquarters on McChord Field, Wash., Dec. 28. Bartle earned the coin by performing at such a high level during BMT at Joint Base San Antonio, Texas, that his scores placed him in the top 10 percent of the almost 800 Airmen he graduated with. He completed the training Dec. 7. "I was just a bit more focused throughout the entire process of BMT. I studied when I was supposed to study and listened when I was supposed to listen. I paid attention to what was being said as opposed to how the Training Instructors were saying it," said Bartle. He leaves for technical school back at Joint Base San Antonio in January to begin the training to become a Aircraft Loadmaster . (U.S. Air Force Photo/Staff Sgt. Rachael Garneau)
