Airman Randy Caruso, 19 

Firefighter, U.S. Air Force, Langley Air Force Base

"We do daily patrols to make sure the planes are safe. You have to rely on teamwork, like any fire department. My whole family is firefighters. My uncle is a fire chief. I went to Kent State on a baseball scholarship but left to join the military. I could have been a Marine. But my Air Force recruiter got me a job as a firefighter first. I'm ready to go if I'm deployed. I'm jumping at the opportunity."
