On today’s show, I have Andrew Crockford who is a former U.S. Air Force Captain currently living in Los Angeles, California.
Andrew is married to one of my close friends from college and as I started talking about the podcast premise, she suggested I interview him since he spent time in the military and I jumped at the opportunity.
During this episode, Andrew and I talk about how he decided to go into the Air Force, the hardest and most rewarding aspects of working in the Air Force, what it’s really like to work in the Air Force, as well as what people misconceive and advice for people who want to go into the Air Force.
Excited for you to tune in and hope you enjoy!
