“My favorite thing about being an instructor at TSAAS is seeing soldiers who come through Air Assault School motivated and ready to attack the course. Being able to mentor soldiers isn’t just my favorite part of being an instructor, but also as part of being a Non-Commissioned Officer.”

Booker has spent 8 years in the Army and he plans to stay in for another 12.

“The Army has been really good to me. Growing up I didn’t have a lot, but the Army gave me something to look forward to. I’ve been able to travel, go to college, live in some really great places and also be with my kids and be stationed close to family.”

In his free time, Booker enjoys riding quads in his hometown.
